Oh yeah, I believe I am now the youngest Builder ever to win the DIYGK Build Off!:wai::2guns:

Build on, builders!!!! WOOOO hoooooo! I'm telling you that was a crop of nice builds.

Congratulations. If the next one starts before I get too far along, I would like to put my dingo in it. If probably set a record for completion with that one. I hope to have it done by the end of February.

Congrats on the win!!

Now Robert, I have one question remaining:

Where dat trophy??! :D

I've heard little tidbits about it's whereabouts from locked threads, but nothing too substantial.

RobertD 01-21-2020 11:53 AM

I have no idea where the trophy is! I’d guess a garage somewhere!

JTSpeedDemon 01-21-2020 11:56 AM

Has anyone had any luck contacting Chancer? he seems to be the biggest suspect right now from what I've read.

I propose we do group harassment! (not) :P

Seriously though, we need to track it down!:toetap05:

RobertD 01-21-2020 12:01 PM

I said when the trophy thing first started, I welcomed it but said I wasn’t going to pay to ship something that heavy unless it was in a flat Rate box! I’m almost out of shirts, might need a new round at some point. Still have a ton of stickers!

JTSpeedDemon 01-21-2020 12:09 PM

Even if it's going to stay with Chancer, we should at LEAST know where it is! It's become an urban legend at this point! Missing for 3 years! :ack2:

RobertD 01-21-2020 12:24 PM

Maybe he can send a picture LOL

karte_m0lim 01-21-2020 12:51 PM

Congrats JTSD ;)

Nice build..

Haven't been here in a while and maybe I'm a bit confused...but are the images on page 15 the finished product? It looks the same as on page 1 more or less. I'm sure I'll get trolled for this but...

He cut the roll hoop off, changed gas tanks, spray painted the frame a few times, did wheel spacing, fixing a front wheel when he crashed. Also he installed a raptor rod in his briggs and had a butt ton of tuning issues. While i fully restored a yerfdog 3202 and swapped an 8hp industrial briggs with straight pipe and slide carb i also did dual front shocks and some other mods. I guess my build had bad pics :(

Hehe, no trolling needed around here! :feedtroll:

Check out this post: http://www.diygokarts.com/vb/showpos...&postcount=278

The 3 photos show the 3 major steps in it's evolution so far, and the video can shed some further details. It's certainly far from what it was when I got it, though! I'm still correcting the cosmetics like the rusty front rims, but it's coming along slowly. The big thing is that it drives and is not so IN YOUR FACE ugly with the roll hoop! :lolgoku:

The pics on page 15 are the spotlight pics, they don't show as many details, but they look epic! Check page 14 for normally lit pictures.

Glad to have ya back!

Chancer was who I mailed it to. It really wasn’t too expensive to ship if I remember correctly.

He moved to Texas where Doug cut the brakes on the beer krate, staged an accident, stole the trophy and buried Eric in the garden.
