    this farmer used 2 months to build this car based on the draft of paper crafts which is for child.

    farmer says: even 65km/h this high speed, the car still goes stable and feels good.

    coz this car doesnt have speed meter, he knows it by following the big truck on the street. "old man, why you are following me? "the driver of big truck man said. farmer said "i want to know how fast it is"


    other info.

    farmer education background: primary school

    max. speed : 65 km/h

    cost: approx. US$ 384

    65 km/h = 40.625 m/h. I'm pretty sure I could buy a used Datsun for less than $384 USD that would go faster than that.

    edit: That said, I do have respect for anyone that builds something themself rather than just buying it. I just dont think it's a very cost effective racing vehicle.
