The venerable Valiant might come back for the 4th annual.

This car started the whole Rods & Rails proxy idea, it's a blast.


It got the name Ghost Valiant from this still image at the 1st annual.

After seeing this slo-mo video run would the "Violent Valiant" be a better name?

Ba-boom, almost started an earthquake on landing...LOL

Idea was first posted 5 years ago and it's been in the game every year since.

Got real happy this year at 18 volts and took another class win.
