I'd get a loan from my company to buy that...... That's sounds like a ton of fun....

Hmm.... Considering that isn't much more than what some new yard karts sell for( I'm talking about you, Manco - lol) that's a lot of bang for the buck!

it is..
but keep in mind that this is a serious racing engine..
and that means it'll need maintenance every 4hrs of running time approximately.

HP like this come at a price, and that price is in fact measured in dollars...
not only it's an expensive engine, it's expensive to maintain.
new rings every time, new piston every other time;
a complete rebuild close to every 24hrs of running time...

Honestly.. if you do not intend to race something like this, you should stay clear IMHO.

Oh, I agree, but if you are looking at getting into racing, can't beat it.

If you want to putter around, there's always the hot rodded predator...
