What happens when you put together a crew of hot-roddin', Linux-geekin' guys in search of a cool two mil from Uncle Sam? You get the A.I. Motorvators' creation for the DARPA Grand Challenge. Featuring a Chevy motor, independent front suspension, and bodywork that lies somewhere beyond Thunderdome, the Motorvators' machine uses inertial and DGPS guiding systems with a battery of sensors (including curb feelers!) to wind its way through the desert. Plus, they put a big Rat Fink on the front. Red Team doesn't have a Rat Fink.
