      Show me what ya got!

      The kart is a semi home-built kart. I will stress that it is not a "race" kart, but none the less very fun. The 125cc Suzuki Motor is a very reliable 4 stroke motor, that will still **** 'n' get. The motor has about 20hours on the rebuild. It's in the "shop" right now getting some new goodies. After riding it for a bit the old exhaust started to fall off, the brake lines were fragile, and the steering column was bent due to people using it as a support for getting in/out of. So The column is being replaced, a new quick release hub is getting put on to ensure that won't happen anymore. Add to that new brake lines, and new exhaust with fmf muffler, and a Vapor speedometer/tach/temperature sensor just to verify just how fast it goes and to keep an eye on everything. I may reglass the seat as it has some cracks and have it painted. It has nerf bars for a duo body, also the gas tank is relocated to the rear and is larger capacity than the regular between your legs tank. Also the clutch setup is just like a car, 3 pedals, not the hand clutch like normal karts. You only use the clutch to get out of 1st and for down shifting..

      It should be done here in the next few weeks, and I can get some videos via a Go Pro HD, and some cell phones I'm sure. I will be able to get specs like 0-60, 1/8th and 1/4 mile times, and top speed. Just to give an idea of where this thing stands lol. I will tell you if you think your R32 launches, your in for a treat. This thing sits 3/4" off the ground and will pull the front wheels up on a good launch. Of course I only weigh 140lbs so..

      Bad: there has to be something right?
      Your friends will want to drive it, but I always worried about them killing thereselves so I tended to keep the retardedest of my friends off of it.


      BTW: It fits perfectly on mk1 roof racks



      OLD PICS: NEW ONES COMING WHEN IT GETS DONE IN THE SHOP!



      I'm on here way too much

      At this point I'd trade for a AAZ Turbo Diesel Motor complete with turbo and all. Or a freshly rebuilt 1.6 TD Motor Complete with turbo.
