This rocket started out as a piece of 48-inch 54mm Carbon Fiber tubing. It is a group project of our own design. The group could not agree on a name so the name was derived from what our neighbors use to call us as we were growing up. It was specifically designed and built for the Mach Madness contests at Higgs Farm.
