Default sweet multi passenger vehicle

So, Zensius, you've got me thinking about multi-passenger designs.

I think you should either get 6 bar stools and mount them, or mount two couches back to back. what do you think?

Hi,just came over the topic, that would be so awesome!pursue that idea but i think with the barstools because they weigh less!

ya bar stoold would be better for weight but if you talking about six of them its going to get prety expensive but if u get 2 junk couches its free and besides you wont get much sped out of it either way because of the weight of all the people will force you to use a very low gear ratio even with a torque converter/2 speen jackshaft

hope this helps

I think the barstool idea is cool. I'm finding that the weight adds up real fast when making a multi-person vehicle. So it probably won't be for racing around.

you might have people falling off of them easier than you would a sit-down bench seat, but it would be killer awesome. and you could add a bar to the vehicle so they'd really be bar stools!

i thought you couldn't drive around inside burning man?
