Re: go Kart hmm

Follow-up post.

That has to be the most jaw dropping thing I've seen in ages. I literally cannot believe my eyes. Perhaps I'm a bit green when it comes to karts (okay, so I'm plenty green), but the acceleration that sonofabitch possesses is nothing short of astonishing!

Surely that's some sort of one-off creation, right? They don't have karts that are that fast in competition, surely. Right?

And how about the guy's driving abilities!?

This might be my all time favorite FB post. Good find!

Re: go Kart hmm

They sure do. A buddy of mine in CO used to own one. Indy drivers actually use them for practice sometimes, to get familiar with the track or whatever. Some of them will turn better times in those things then the actual Indy cars

Re: go Kart hmm

Where in the hell is it?! Every time I click on the link I get a page in German with race cars. (Although there
was a nice Bitburger sign in the foreground).

Re: go Kart hmm

OMG Yeah, that guy is a good driver. Can you imagine what the 'perceived' speed is when you're sitting 6' off the pavement?

Re: go Kart hmm

I would think that it would be a very fun and relatively inexpensive hobby. Looking at that rickety thing, I'd figure under $3K, and 'frische gummi' ('fresh rubber') every now and then would be enough to get started. Hmm...

Even with a liter engine (say, $1500-2000), a base kart, and some work, I think under $3K is possible. Must not think about karts, must not think about karts, must not think about karts...
