I like 1WD karts. They probably won't win any circuit races, but at least they can do burnouts! And it's never boring to drive one!
What does your daughter think of all this?

Would that be a certain K1 Speed?
I like K1, but the tracks are too small to stretch these karts' legs.

Whoawhoawhoa. This is Hellion, he's always gonna say stuff like that. The real trick is to just kinda let those comments bounce off and not get under your skin.
That's kind of his way of asking for a video.
I believe that your minibike goes 65+, but I would also like to see a video.
Just try not to take offense from stuff like that, it'll take you nowhere good.

hmm, that sounds like
someone just realized he's in need of roughly 14 to 15 horses
to reach the claimed speed and his engine is only providing him with maybe 10 ...

sure it might be geared for 70mph @7000 rpm,
but what does it help if it only revs 5k under load

Ah well.. it might just sound like that

dropping the bike off a cliff doesn't count as speed record btw

How so? it can only tell if the numbers you entered match up..

you can still claim you have a 200hp engine or reach 8000 rpm
or whatever you want.

if you actually tached your bike with the app..
go ahead, let's see the results

I'm wondering how long do you maintain that 65 mph speed? Do you get any wheel wobble (death wobble) at that speed? Do those knobby tires send a strong vibration? Just curious what that mini bike feels like at those speeds.

Do you really go over 65 mph on that mini bike or do you think it feels like your going that fast I don't know sounds fishy
