Why FWD is like bad sex:
http://www.slate.com/id/2081194/
Its very true bad sex is still pretty good when compared to other thing you could be doing with your time but good sex is still way better.

Whats with all the discussions about rotaries? They double their displacement before classifying them for racing for a reason.

is that a slide carby? coz if it is then be careful coz they tend to suck open under boost leaving you stuck on full throtle!

rotaries are a better engine in terms of performance FACT. they dont loose that 50% or so power in turning a recipricating force into a rotating one, they fire 3 times for every revolution of the rotor itself and for every revolution of the rotor the "crank shaft"
does 3 revs, rotories are a beutifull design if it wasnt for one big flaw, and that wear but we dont have rotaries on our go karts so theres not really much point in going on about them in the supercharger thread unless you want a rotary supercharger? now that would be awesome! if not a little in efficient......

If the carb was used in a blow though setup I can see it sticking wide open from the pressure, but not in a suck through.

we could throw a rotary on are carts but it'll be expensive and dangerously fast...

No idea what it costs, but man that would be sweet for a kart, or even a mini bike if you had the balls.

restore, you would neva get a turbo that small! you'd have to get it to rev to 10k+ for it to spool, find a crashed peugeot jetforce compressor with a super charger, thier a 125 that came with a supercharger from the factory , it worked quite well aparently

I did this to mine:

Works well, adds quite a lot of power, gives it more acceleration anyway.

I dont believe that it would add any power at all, you need pressure, that wont give any pressure. lots of engines come stock with a setup like that (air filter housing has a duct from cooling tin into it). Plus that hose is tiny, the acceleration is all in your head

they do sell turbos small enough for 50cc engines so it shouldnt be that hard finding on that can fit a 125cc
