Muddy!!!!!

Unread postAuthor: schmanman » Wed Dec 20, 2006 7:00 pm

ok, today me and my friend went to the trails to prep for the paintball game, and do some riding. he was muddy, with globs on his jacket, so he borrowed my goggles, and rode his go kart through a foot and a half deep pond at the top of the huge hill. he was totally brown. It was really hilarious!

Image

Image

he built a new go-kart with a beefier 5 horse(stronger:this one has a 5 horse, but it is worn out), lights, and more round clearance, and is gonna buy an 80's four wheeler, so he is trying to kill this thing and to get rid of it, and it is now on it's last legs. he got it in first grade. since it is his beater, he stuck some funny stickers on it.

Image

hecks yeah!

Image

Image

Image

there was an inch of mud on the floor pan, and after driving back through a grassy field, well, this is what happens.

Image

Introducing.... my friend!

that is cool, u2 . the new go-kart he built has removable sides so he can use it as a paintball tank.


man, it was cold out, and after getting water thrown up by the tires, and the shovel-like floor pan, he was soaked, and he was freezing!!! durring paintball tomorrow, I will take some pics of the pond (if you could call it that, more of a muddy, foot and a half deep puddle. it is there year round too.) the place is torn up from him doing doughnuts!

yeah. go-karts are awesome for most off-road stuff, but try out a quad or dirtbike off-road, and, well, 'nuff said. :lol:

Cool. We can use another good member. I am going to work for my uncle. He's a golfer and he has lots of crappy Gbs so I get to shoot them all. I would love to make a go kart like this. The role cage is great but what type of clutch does it have? Cyntrifical (sp)?

ok, i'll make sure he joins soon.

it is a manco dingo, this is how it was when he bought it. It has a torque-a-verter, which increases low end torque, and top end speed.

here's the site where you can buy them. you can install them on almost any go kart or minibike. they are a bit pricey, though.

Like I said, it is his, not mine.

shows how cheap Honda is. I hate their cars, but there ATVs, dirt bikes, and other rec vehicles are cool. my friend who moved away had an odyssey.

How fast was he going? Did he hydroplane when he first hit the water?

well, top speed is somewhere around 35 miles an hour, but at first the floor acted as a hull, like a boat, so he skimmed for a couple seconds.

That is the same model cart as The go-cart with balls!!!! try getting a axle for it, they don't have the octagon axle's anymore. We, my friend Billy, spun the center out of the rim, so we had to grind the axle round and welded a pair of rideing mower wheels on it.
