With the upcoming Death Race movie the re-make on the tips of everyone's tongues these days (yeah right, you did see "The Dark Knight" didn't you?), the good folks at Universal decided to add a "Death Race Your Ride" feature to their website. You can pick from a number of canned cars OR you can upload photos of your own ride and add Death Race equipment. Heavy armor, weapons, decals, wheels, and battle damage are your paint, and Deathrace.net is your paintbrush. The old Audi somehow just isn't that intimidating compared to the big bad Ford Mustang. Great idea, right? It'd be like a personal "Jalopnik My Ride" p-shop feature if it weren't clunky as hell to use. A+ on the idea, F- on the implementation. [Death Race My Ride]
