Every Monday, Build of the week highlights a unique rig from the web's most dedicated PC building communities.
I once bought my brother Ghost Rider, Ghost Rider 2, and Drive Angry for his birthday. We watched all three in the same evening, and our lives were forever changed. Nicolas Cage’s ‘strong’ performances were an inspiration to us, and so we made our best efforts to mimic his alarming face contortions and yell-spittle quota as a way to more clearly communicate our emotions. It was a bad year.
Turns out, Cage-fury is best channeled through inanimate objects, which is why Ghost Rider from Modder Crow out of Thailand is such an exceptional piece of work. It’s a sturdy build, metallurgy and welding at it’s finest, worthy of the Harley-est hogs. And coursing through those chrome veins is an attitude so raw, hotter than where the rubber meets the road, that it can only be expressed in red LED lighting and a skull at the mast. What’s that on the side of the highway? It’s some graphics, and they’re dead.
Hog talk aside, it’s an impressive build with specs that do plenty of heavy lifting themselves. If only computers could rev their engines.
