it was really close from all the entrys, there were no clear landslide rigs, I figured this contest would be really close and everyone in it could feel good about the comp.

So many unique mods on these rigs really stand them apart but bring them together. The other people who didnt get in this month, would have been the same fit which made it even harder to choose. I really hope I get 10 + people entering every month, keep it intresting and honest.
