    Wow...very nifty!! I love the post that the builder posted on having to find parts in the US since they don't sell gasoline-grade fuel line in Japan, which I found odd. Sounds like an old Fokker mill to boot! As a fan of Steampunk type projects, this stuff makes me think, which usually means I end up losing more money on a new project that stands a 50% chance of actually being completed.

  3. I think this may be my next dust gathering waste of money. I have always wanted a shifter cart

    Though I find the sifter cart cool for that type of money you could pro Rally at the club level

  6. problem is if i was to pro rally it would have to be in a evo mr-8 or maybe a old ford escort to start but how much can a shifter cart cost didnt look to expensive?

    I would bet that shifter is over 10k and you go through a bunch of tires and they are costly. About ten years ago, my boss used to race 125cc 2 stroke shifters.. They were 7k back then. You could build a nice VW golf rally car and club rally.

    Ari, not a chance. Find a cheap wrecked gsxr 750 for a few hundred bucks with a running motor and build a cart if you have any fabrcating skills at all. If not I can pick up a real shifter cart chassis for 500 or less. The tires are the only thing you'll really burn through if you're smoking them like he was.

    Those are all really fun video's. The shifter cart would be fun, and with a GSXR 1100, that would be scary fast.

    Check this dude out...
