With the Friday deadline approaching fast our crew is doing a little extra curricular work. RSD and FMF have a joint entry in the Redbull soapbox derby in LA this weekend. Our basic frame is done thanks to the guys at FMF. Now it is time for us to install the steering, axles, body panel, flux capacitor, seats, and all the necessary gussets to make it fast and safe. Well safe is a word I use but with Roland driving nothing is safe. Come down to 5th and Grand this Saturday, their is a 50/50 chance that you will see a car either skidding on the roof or toasting Budweiser’s in victory circle. “If my calculations are correct, when this baby hits eighty-eight miles per hour… you’re gonna see some serious [stuff].” Dr. Emmett Brown
