The V8 Barstool [S2 Ep. 4-3]
In the world of hot rodding, when gear heads gather around and start
discussing their projects, invariably the conversation drifts into
speculation of what the smallest thing is that you can successfully put a
V8 engine in. Well today on GEARZ, Stacey pretty much puts an end to that
speculation by building a V8 powered BARSTOOL!! It's part go-cart... part
garden tractor... part insane... and ALL hot rod. Which of course is what
GEARZ is all about! If you like WILD.. then you don't want to miss this
show! Then Stacey dives into some Muffler Tech to show you what kind of
mufflers there are on the market, and give you some tips that might help
you make the right decision when the time comes to stick some cool mufflers
on your machine!
1960 Vespa 400 Microcar with 1200cc Harley Davidson Sportster engine
I've had a ton of emails asking for more shots of the build and video of it
running down the street. Here a short clip to give you some idea of what we
did to build this wild ride. Its a mix of video and photos. Of course,
there was ALOT more to it than just what you see here.
Slicks Garage "World's Fastest Lawnmower"!
Here is Slick, the owner of Slicks Garage in Palmetto,FL., doing a burnout
on his "World's Fastest Lawnmower" during the garage's monthly event called
"First Fridays on Fifth". Held the 1st Friday of each month at Slicks
Garage, 923 5th St. W. Palmetto,FL.. This was from August 2010. And by the
way, for all of you asshhats who sent me emails stating "Well, Johnny
So-and-So has the record for the world's fastest lawn mower! This ain't the
world's fastest lawn mower!"......GET OVER IT!! I don't care WHO has the
"record". IT WAS JUST A TITLE. Good grief people, get over yourselves.
R1 Go Kart Passes a Cop (Proper GOPRO Editing, Link Below)
Don't make my mistake of uploading videos in non high def. There should be
a 720p high def option but I did not have the correct knowledge when
uploading to YouTube. I got fed up and decided to learn more about my
GOPRO and editing. Check out this link to learn how to use your GOPRO Hero
camera properly and edit professionally.
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 170mph. 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.

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.
