Supercharged home made Straight Eight by Desperate Dan Vid 2
Built in a shed, it fired up first go. I was hoping it would sound real
lumpy like a drag engine, but it runs too smooth, and it's too quiet even
with unsilenced 9" pipes! The timing was a pain to sort out the Rover
distributor runs backwards, I had to take the heads off to work out the
firing order!!! See the shed it was built in on Vid 1.
Added May 2012: OK, my nails are dirty, maybe because I'm an engineer &
build stuff? Maybe your nails are clean because you can't build eff-all &
just sit behind your computer? C'mon folk, get a life.
Cub Cadet V8 Trophy.Winner
Paul Jones dropped an alcohol-fuel Ford 351 Cleveland V8 running 15:1 CR
into his Cub Cadet riding mower. And why not? It fits, doesn't it? Built
for pulling contests, but also handy when you need the lawn done and you
don't have a lot of time. Just listen to that thing bark. Recorded at the
Genesee Valley Antique Auto Club show on Aug 1, 2010 on the grounds of the
Rochester (NY) Institute of Technology. For More, See:

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.

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.

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.

Here are a couple videos of the previous owner; where the speedo read
181mph and spun out.

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!
