Yes, corporate sponsorship - another element of car wars rears its ugly head

Well, the problem with that is, a gun like this isn't something you can just take down to the landfill and jacklight some rats. You need to have a real firing range with several miles of closed off/dedicated safety zone.

What, no William Tell moment with a single shot or heck, full throated firing rate?

Scratch that idea. ;)

I was more a fan of the other vehicles mentioned in the story - the van with the tank gun or the convertible with 3 VMGs front which at least theoretically met the 1/3 of spaces rule. Of course the best was the supercharged Daffy Duck pickup.

It always reminds me of NOVA events -- tho' I don't recall anyone ever being so skull-crushingly foolish as to use a Convertible in an arena (I made a lot of use of FCEs... >:) ).

At the risk of piling it deep...

Convertibles are COOL. When driving them anywhere - they allow for extremely good ventilation.
