something safe or with breaks.

I think your engine will break i made a air hogs style engine and i got 12000rpm out of it but it quickly craped itself .

Bad news i stacked it onto a kerb and the aluminum bearing holders on the real Axel snapped so it looks like i need to find a new axle


My engine is milled from heat treated high carbon steel, so I'm willing to give it a shot. I rigged up an air hogs engine input tube to a blowgun once, then used a drill to start it. Needless to say, the engine died..

Stinks bout the axle.

My go kart attacked me!!!! i was trying to get the old bearings of the axle, (rusted on) would not come off so started to hammer the crap out of them, then i felt a sharp pain in my leg.
Went inside and ther was blod dripping out of it i looked at the hammer and the bearing mettle had chipped the hammer their is a 3mm hole in my leg i hope nothing is still in their like a bit of rusty steel :?

what is you piston made out of, mine was aluminum and i filed as much of it as a could and my connecting rad was made from some 0.8mm titanium sheet. the problem i had was the pin on the piston that pushes up the bearing always got mushroomed and stopped working.

i also uploaded this last night i bought a crappy 50cc auto bike of my friend and stuck a 4 banger 5 speed lump in it i cant take pictures of it because some p*ik stole it an burnt it down the woods

Somebody stole and burned your camera??? This sounds like somebody you know lol. How else would you know what happened to it? Anyways... A 125 is pretty big for a bike that size. I had a crf250x for a while... Had to sell it because my dad was an idiot and practically burned his money over an open fire. Then there was a bad time in money and... Well you know the rest. I only got to ride it in my street a couple times!!! :cry:
I'll maybe get another when times are better. Anyways... Sorry for hijacking the thread. I wish I had the resources to mess around with engines like you do.

no some tw*t stole that bike.


I only payed 17 quid for the bike and the engine was 30 quid from a bike breakers and some other small things like inner tubes and it was good to go toped out at about 55 but had nuts excel.

here are the latest pictures i would say is is 60 percent finished

i have found a much easer way to change up the gears i just press the kill switch

i also moved the shifter near the steering wheel via a linkage

its relay fun to drive i can do donuts on the spot in 3r gear and its drifts real nice

i am thining about changing the exhaust it attracts allot of attention good and bad and it hurts your ears

i also need to change the gearing i can top it out in last gear up a hill i think its doing about 40 45 i would like it to do about 50 60 but i think i need a break first !!

and now for the pictures.....

I did not know that fear could be measured in metric :lol:

Looks cool, but yes, new tires and a breaking system would be good :D
