rantinan-damn! i thought u would have been one of the finalist, that thing is a real racing mech. I mean the thrusters on the sides for high turns and the center is deadly speed. if i got the chance mines would have been a sinker as well. um, congrats to the finals thus far, and i know this is lated, but it's only now i am seeing the pic of the racing paladin (which is so cool) and LOL to bob the racing liger. Who came up with that?
