Why not let everyone decide? I can put a voting page for you if you decide to go that route.

Papee, that would be great if you would set up a poll.
Judging this contest is not going to be a easy task, one thing for sure is that it will be judge fairly. These guys put a lot of time and thought into setting up the boogie board into a RC Airboat.

I'm just curious what aspects do they get judged on is there going to b just one winner ... or is their going to be like "best paint job" , "best performance", "most attention to detail" stufff like that coz it would be hard to judge something like that over the internet....

We also have a poll set at the M-AB-A.com forums. If the site would just keep working so that every one can get to it, would be nice.
There are 5 places to win. We have a poll set for all 5 places this way each person judging in the poll can judge it like they see it.
