I'm hoping to get mine in the mail by the middle of next week. If I could just get that blasted paint to dry a bit faster. Was also thinking about a caddy but since it sounded like you were already going to have a few of those show up I'm going with something totally original. My dremel got quite a workout. :) More to come soon.

I just picked up a failed restore project on craigslist, hope I can get it overhauled and running this week!

I literally walked to Wal-Mart on a freezing day and purchased this deformed Rapid Responder (Ranger Rig). It rolls straight, but it seemed like it would have never been purchased due to how badly deformed its chassis was and how battered its blister was. After giving it FTEs, this made my fastest Cadillac V-16 become its prey, beating it by about a centimeter.

*More will be added to this car once I find a fantasy driver for it.

  • deformed? factory mishap? — CrzyTrkrDude
  • For some reason, those things are pretty fast. Maybe it's the spirit of the duty it performs? — CrzyTrkrDude
  • Trash = Treasure — redlinederby
  • i name it LEFTY... — fordman

Good grab, the Rescue Ranger was a top performer in the Fantasy League, right behind the Land Rover and a few select others. It's record was 27-6, not bad at all. Must just have a good balance to its weight.

Graphic you put together for this race looks great!

  • Thanks. I've finally decided to make time for consistency. — redlinederby
  • Agree great work! — 2seven

Entries from New Jersey and Colorado arrived today.

Friendly reminder, only one week left to get your entries to Ohio. 

Here's more information for the car including the driver and other fantasy details:

The 2016 Rapid Responder is nicknamed "Dormeur" by its owner, Diogene Severin, which is translated to "sleeper." A turbocharged 8.2L V-12 engine sits in the engine bay with another turbocharged 8.2L V-12 engine installed in the rear. "Dormeur" has a malformed front end but the owner ignored the defects. This truck became Severin's fastest build.

Diogene Severin is a young drag racer and physicist from northern France. Born on December 4, 1988, Severin grew inspired by drag racing in the United States before moving to Virginia and joining Arlington Racing School in 2009. Most of the vehicles he races tend to be sleepers.

So this is a total experiment.  I sure hope it's fast. Only time will tell if I've built my best.  Planning to get it in the mail tomorrow.
