    WOW! I've seen guys wreck the ones that had just a little 5HP motor. A couple beers or even sober and things could get out of hand in a hurry with a V8! But, then, that's the fun!:D

    Stacey David put one of those together on a Gearz episode. As I recall he said their included motor was a fairly detuned 305 with a lumpy cam for sound effects mostly. The thing I thought was crazy is the cart doesnt have actual brakes. It uses a hydrostat trans out of a lawn tractor so you press the left foot lever to go forward while you press the throttle with your right foot. To stop you lift up on the left pedal and let off the right throttle pedal. Try that after a few beers! :)

    I saw that thing built on Torque TV on Speedvision not too long a go. It looks like a real pisser, the guy who hosts the show was test driving it through their building where they film the show and he rounded a corner and some lady was just coming out of an office and he scared the shit out of her. That in itself would make me want to buy one, I bet they cost a small fortune

    Small block kits on their website - W/O the long block - sell for $8000 for the basic kit, and $13,500 for the turn key kit.

    They make a big block kit too....

    Stacy David on Gearz was using one to pull a small dozer into the shop with it. Would be useful around a shop.

    Could probably build one for THOUSANDS less than that... Could be just as much fun with a banger or other 4 cylinder motor as well.

    Hmm, I wish I had the kind of time and spare money on my hands that whoever built that apparently does. Seems incredible useful.......for killing oneself. Looks reeeaaal safe there partner.
     
  17. If you can't build one of your own for $1000,you're a idiot!!!!

    no, i have not personally seen it.
    but look at the proportions of the engine against his body...it's a full scale motor no doubt....not sure on the cubic inches tho.
    i was guessing 350, because that is the typical sbc.

    Next small block I get, I am going to build one of those! I would not use a hydrostatic trans and I would actually have brakes however. I would just use a clutched 90 degree in/out box with a reverser, and run a motor cycle chain. They are pretty easy to find in farm stores and not expensive.
