    Design Notes - Like the Led Zeppelin (below), the moment the HMG cheat arrived everyone rushed to the VR garage to abuse it - and what better way to use a 1 space 2 d-damage gun than in a three space turret. Whenever possible, I will use a turret - because of the versitility (especially in a free-for-all multi-car arena) and it avoids the

    Anyway, the C/A frame (which is necessary in these high-ticket matches with vans and campers) has the obvious drawbacks for rams and rolls. The Solid Psycho takes out the vulnerability but even with tossing as much goo out as possible, the armor is still too light. Component armor and drop-spike-plates can only go so far.

    The name comes from this song (thank you, Mad Music Archives).
