first time out racing the diesel rabbit, 2 days after buying it, on one hour of sleep after spending 36hrs straight preparing it for this race. It was a high-adrenaline environment, and I was wearing steel toe boots!
Managed to beat an integra, a talon AWD turbo, a lotus elise turbo, a bigblock corvette and a rotary powered mg before getting eliminated. what fun!
Turbo Diesel Mini Bike
Start at 2:13 to skip the intro, or click here for a helmet-cam ride:
This is an idea I've had since I was a kid, and after watching Mike Cberts
Diesel mini bike video I was inspired to put together my own! The frame
has been around since I was 4 years old! At that point it was powered by a
3 hp Briggs and Stratton and is a Fox corporation, Trail Bug probably from
the 60's or early 70's. The engine is a copy of a 10 hp Yanmar single
cylinder Diesel engine and the turbo is
similar to the one on my Honda CX-500 turbo motorcycle. The engine runs at 3,600 rpm
max and top speed so far is 39.3 mph.
Here's a description of 2 stroke & 4 stroke Diesel engines:

A little tour of my Mk1 Gti that I just recently picked up. The Exhaust has a pretty bad bang when it first
starts up. Im trying to get that fixed asap. If you dont like it or you
have unconstructive criticism please feel free to shut up haha. Havent
started working on her yet so give me any advice or ideas you may have.
Compound Turbo DIESEL Rat Rod - Got Smoke?
http://www.1320video.com/store It's definitely not fast yet, but how much
of a badass would you feel like driving a rat rod with a GIANT turbo hanging out the windshield? Then, when you
stab the gas, there's nothing but thick smoke out of your (non-existent)
rear view mirror! Pretty big badass would be the correct answer!
