Not just any soapbox derby car, this one by Instructables member Papier Boy features “a rotatable R2-D2 that’s controlled by a re-wired NES controller.” Click here for the first picture in gallery.

For added geekiness, Papier Boy modded an NES controller to a styrofoam R2-D2 head. When the controller’s A and B buttons are pressed at the same time, the little droid rotates for 15 seconds.
