Clearly you and I differ in our understanding of the term "NB" in this context.

Standing Out At Tokyo Auto Salon - Speedhunters

"For the final car in this Spotlight I just had to choose something a little quirky – this is the Tokyo Auto Salon after all. The Tonino Lamborghini Miura is built on the NB Mazda Roadster platform, just like the other cars this company produces – including those Toyota 2000GTs parked alongside it."

Ah, the old philosophical question of "When replacing parts, when does object A become a different object?"

I wouldn't actually consider it an NB either.

Cool look at competitive pinewood derby cars. I hope ricers turn their attention in this direction and we see civics with herra frush back wheels and one wheel off the ground in the front.

Still trying to figure out what's holding the tophats in place.

Now I'm trying to figure out why, if you wanted to build something like that, and obviously had the means to perform considerable feats of fabrication, you wouldn't just start from scratch with a tube frame.

I have a pretty good idea on a public-conscious drone countermeasure system - now if only I could figure out how to make money on the idea.

Have you ever tried to hit a flying target with a slug. Birdshot for sure.

I'd guess #4 steel, maybe #2 would be a good starting point. You want the pellets to have enough mass to still do damage at range.



Depends on if you want to do structural damage or just break props.

I'm assuming they're composite construction, so it would absorb a lot of damage. We need to find the control systems or fuel supply to bring it down. Shot placement would be key.

It's a front-engined replica of a mid-engined Italian sports car, built on a Japanese chassis, with a Ford motor, and the thing you find odd is the coolant bottle?
