Default DARPA Grand Challenge

Check it out:

We could have all pulled together, created a hybrid. Maybe a SC 4W drive Bonne, with every mod known to man (possibly a Zilla foundation with FrankeBonne undertones) and some sort of laser/radar guided navigational system, maybe we could find the control system for a Tomahawk cruise missle at a yard sale and do the boost bypass. Then spanked all the other contestants. The $2M prize could have went into the BC fund for future mod development and maybe one or two free mods for every member! Oh yeah, lots of funding for





Always next year I guess.
