The awesome open-source Local Motors Rally Fighter will tackle the Parker 425 cross-desert race. This is a full off-road desert race and a real test for the crowd-sourced Rally Fighter's durability. As for performance? It weighs 3,800 pounds and has a 400 hp turbodiesel engine, so it should do just fine if it holds up. You can track the race here and the build here.
