Pretty sweet, i bet his neighbors love the sound of that thing LOL. I like how at the end you can see the car leaning to the drivers side real bad, dragging around the corner LOL. I didnt think motorcycle engines like that really had the power to move something that big.

Impressive though

I love it! I shoulda took metal shop instead of wood in high school. I see it is def. a tad too low. He might as well put a titanium block under it and shoot crazy sparks when it drags!

Just make sure the fuel line connections are tight and dry!

We have or had a race series here called Legends race cars,which are 1/3 scale late model 40,s and 50,s cars. They are similar in they are All powered by Sealed 1000 CC Honda motorcycle motors. These cars are surprisingly Quick. Cars are capable of high 10 second quarter mile passes and actually quite quick Oval racing. they are/were reasonable priced cars to get grassroots racers started and running on very modest budgets.

I've driven a Nascar and one of these. Apples to Apples they are not, but non the less a very fun car. not sure if they are still around as our local racetrack just got shut down. Presently we have none.
