Name the MAKE race team!

Make Pt0390
Ok Makers here’s a fun one – we have a race team. We’ll have a LeMons car (the car is an Escort, but not the one pictured above) – but what we don’t have is a team name. This is where you come in, name our racing team! If we pick yours I’ll send you out some cool stuff for the Maker store and you’ll be part of history! Here are some names that were tossed around to get you started! These are examples only, don’t use these.

  • Driving Insane
  • Make: Dorks in Motion
  • Make: DIY Hard
  • The 88 Horses of Make (the car has a factory rating of 88hp)
  • The Crazy 88
  • Make’s e Do-it-Your-Own-Damn-Selfers
  • The Makequake
  • Make:Believe!
  • Make:Like a racecar
  • Sleek Geeks
  • Make:Drive:Repeat
  • Power Conductor
  • Make’s The Soldering Iron in the Eye Fighting Dorks Superfast Racing Team
  • Ford Almighty
  • The Spirit of Silverlake
  • The Full-Bladder Sprinters
  • The Fleet Ford Freaks of Fast
  • The Speedbot Wranglers

These won’t do, we need your help. START YOUR ENGINES – post up in the comments!

  1. Oh My God, two of my favorite things, Make and LeMons hoonage shenanigans! AWESOME! Anyway, I agree with Vulcanis, Warranty Void or Duct Tape and Paperclips sounds awesome. However, for the livery, I suggest copying my Forza car that I got frontpaged for back in August:

    Of course, do it up in spraypaint, but I would be so pumped if my Forza spray had at least a little bit of inspiration for the Make LeMons hoonmobile.
