    Those of you who spent the weekend Tokyo drift-racing your way to a rap battle—or whatever it is people do when they go outside on the weekend—probably feel pretty good about yourselves right now. At the end of the day, though, what do you have to show for it? Vague memories of changing lanes. Twenty-five of the people who wisely chose to stay home and craft items, on the other hand, now have shiny new ultra-rare golden wrenches that they can keep. For a weekend? No. For a lifetime. Eat it, drift-racers. Eat all of it.

    I just hope, that since there are only 100 golden wrenches, that they go to Engi players.

    Otherwise, what's the point.

    There are some numbers commented out in the source for the wrench page. They change on every reload. I don't know if they're significant though.

    The wrenches are old and boring now. Nice to see the actual update getting underway.

    The only time i can imagine the novelty of turning ragdolls into gold statues actually being amusing is if you manage to catch a taunting player with it. Resulting in an awesome frozen yellow crome pose.

    But considering he's stuck behind his sentry all day he makes the least use out of this gimmick.

    It's a good time to get away from that sentry then ;)

    I know I would go whack people with my golden wrench if I had one

    Frontier justice sounds like that kind of weapon that'll get changed a lot in the future.

    8:35 PM - nine: you have roughly a 1 in 2.65 million chance of getting a golden wrench when you craft
    8:35 PM - nine: roughly

    The sad thing is I didn't even craft it for anything, just kept on changing token type thinking I'd be smart...

    God I feel shit - should a game be capable of this?
