"I built a racer. It's the fastest ever."
Anakin Skywalker[src]

Anakin Skywalker's Podracer was a custom-built podracer built by a young Anakin Skywalker as a slave on Tatooine, and used to secure his freedom and the replacement hyperdrive components for Queen Amidala's ship during the Boonta Eve Classic.[3]

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The blue and silver podracer built by Anakin Skywalker was a custom specification pair 620C racing engine made by Radon-Ulzer Repulsorlift. Skywalker's racer followed the basic design of the podracing machine,[5] cockpit total length 3.15 meters. The engines were 7 meters in length and[6] was smaller and slimmer than other podracers. The two high-power engines are linked by Energy binder and are structured to train the cockpit (pod) at the rear by control cable made of Steelton. The engine used by Skywalker was a waste item that Watto discarded, but developed a new type fuel spraying device and a system that efficiently fed fuel to the fuel chamber. By doing so, the thrust was greatly improved.[5] The maximum speed of this racer reached speed 947 kilometers and was able to rise to an altitude 105 meter by Repulsor Lift.[4]
