SpaceX Has Nuttin' on the Mighty T4WD!

See what I launched from my backyard last night!
If Elon can launch a Tesla, so I can launch (a clone of) Goldie!

I feel like aerodynamically that T4 has a better chance of making it if we point it upwards :D

Would have been far more practical.

Now we need a movie where aliens send the tesla back, complete with animated dummy, to destroy us.

No wonder the shot from last night fell back to earth!
Fortunately, I had a backup clone of Goldie ready, so also used the backup rocket just a few minutes ago!

that would be a waste of a good tercel4wd.

But that would be the best place for the Tesla, is in orbit, where all the tax payers who helped pay for it can see it. and keep it away from traffic, where the batteries could harm someone.

BTW, we have a Tercel4wd forum member who works for space-X. he joined the forum when an engineering student in Corvalis, and than move to Waco to work for Space-x.

It is member teranfirbt. Who always have interesting experiments in Tercel4wd retrofits going on.

Joking aside, it's great to be alive for a new space race!
