Homemade Go-Kart And Mini-Bike (GoPro & Rollover)
My friend was in town, so we decided to test out some modifications to my
1: Lowered seat (continued...)
2: 5-Point safety harness
3: Front suspension
*Note: The steering column was not locked into place, therefore, you will
notice Dan veering off course without steering on some occasions. Also, he
is 6'3" tall, (I'm 5'7") which is why he looks a bit big for the kart!
If you have any questions about the Kart, please follow the link at the end
of the video. If you have questions after that, then fire away! They are
not for sale... unless you give me obscene amounts of money.

Super Fast Indoor Go Kart Racing GoPro HD
This is a RPM Raceway in Sacramento. These carts are really fast indoor go
karts and they are so much fun. This is my buddy jeff hopkins lapping
everyone. He gets first place every time we race. The go pro hd camera was
mounted to the side of his helmet with the suction cup mount.
Vegas Hustler Wheel Stand
Mark Bishop hooks his Super Pro ET Dragster up a treat as he leaves the
line during Sunday evening at the 2009 Easter Thunderball at Santa Pod
Raceway UK. Mark normally has about 2 inches of wheels up when he runs so
this was a massive shock and caught him off guard. With a 60 ft time of
approximately one second there isn't much time to react. Chassis, steering
and wheels were damaged in the incident and Mark vows to be out again as
soon as funds allow. Ian Blackett

Mark was back out in action at the Eurpoean Finals.
This is a go kart me and me buddy worked on in shop class. I did not put it
together, all i did was take the enging out and fix the timign and some
other stuff, then put it back in there and fired it up, i had to do th
clutch, shifter, and mount the speedo but thats bout it. Since i have been
getting alot of responses of " what a pussy take it out of 2 or hes being
scared ( which i have a 1200 rocket so im pretty sure i woulda handled it)
i would take it going 100 ( riiiiight ok then), and quit rolling on the
throttle, take it out into the field, and so on, i will revise the
description my dad put on here and tell you some details. We were not
planning on puting it on youtube in the first plce, and as everyody knows
you get a little more braver and stupider in front of the camera, well i
didnt know that so we were just putsin around, First of all, no brakes(at
all) 2nd of all it was the first time having it out of the shop and
actually riding it, 3rd of all the frames not very sturdy at all, and 4th
we had it for sale on ebay thats the last thing i wanted to do is screw it
up. Also I sold it awhile ago so do not have anymore, any more questions
or comments i would love to answer!

R1 Go Kart Passes a Cop
COOL INFO: Kart was bought for $5,000 plus shipping. It has had several
owners. Previous owner from Georgia owned kart for literally two weeks then
re-listed on eBay citing it was the most ridiculous thing he'd ever driven
and there weren't many places to use it. Originally this kart had 6 wheels
(google images R1 go kart). It was drag raced and crashed due to the front
wheels coming off the ground. One owner told the story of trying to get
the major tire manufacturers to produce a tire that would allow the kart to
attempt to go over 200mph and not blow up (find video below in description
of tire blowing up with speedo reading 181mph). 150mph or higher is
reached in fourth gear, there are six gears :). Kart has been sold and the
new owner is putting paddle shifters and other goodies on it. The local
police have had two driver suspects. Both suspects have been
harassed/threatened by police. They think they know who the driver was,
they're wrong. He still remains a mystery.
You DO NOT have my permission to re-upload my "R1 Go Kart Passes A Cop"
without my written permission. I have already filed copyright infringement
claims against 5 channels for re-uploading my video for financial gain.
This is a one of a kind custom frame built specifically for this engine.
One of the previous owners told me the gentlemen that bought it from him
had it up to 170-181mph. This kart is wicked.
WATCH TILL THE END, A POLICE CAR PASSES IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION!! If your
impatient to watch 10 minutes of video, skip to 7:50 and watch till the end
for the best part.
2005 Yamaha R1 Sport Bike engine in a Beisse Shifter Kart. Around 180 HP,
weighs about 220lbs. Previous owner had Kart up to 181 mph before a tire
blew out. Using GoPro Hero High Def camera with adhesive mount.
NOTE: The rear tires are worn out so the driver didn't do anything to
crazy. The ending was edited out to protect the driver.
Location: Northern Michigan
Here are a couple videos of the previous owner; where the speedo read
181mph and spun out.
GSX-R 600 Kart - First Ride

was custom built at my fabrications shop. Its FOR SALE for the right price,
