    Comments: Though this unique pod racer is a marvel of engineering, the true marvel is its pilot and builder, the young human Anakin Skywalker. Displaying a phenomenal understanding of engineering, the young prodigy not only salvaged a pair of junked racing engines, but developed an enteirely new fuel distribution system. The young genius' innovations kept the weight of the racer down,a nd boosted its speed on a straightaway to more than three-quarters the speed of sound. The light racer suffered a serious disadvantage against its heavier competitors in the brutal fender to fender racing of the canyon section of the Boonta Eve Classic, but dominated utterly in the open steppes.
