Default H&R custom Stadium Lite Buggy

Have a chance to trade for this car. Three of my Ody's for this car.

http://seattle.craigslist.org/oly/mcy/3024163747.html

Read the thread from 2008. This blows by fl350's and pilots and does it 5 feet in the air.

Some of you may remember but my whole goal is to have a stadium racer or Pilot.

After too many 100am nites, it just went for it is first run.
HOLY XXXX!!!!!
Even with the carb not dialed in and the clutch coming in too late it is un ----- believable.
The whoop section - did not even feel it. The big jump (which is 7'+) - landed like you were on a couch.
Only a few minor issues to fix for Sat nite - and one big one - will full power it will lift the front wheels. Sounds cool, but it will not turn if you are on the gas. Stabbing the brakes will get it to turn NOW. May have to add 20# of lead over the front end.


WOW!!! That car is fast. I tried my hardest to keep up and I just couldn't. It looked awsome 5 feet in the air in front of me also. Way to go Ken.

Now for the very cool part! Bob with Extreme Baja Kart sent me a scan of a magazine article from ATV Sport back in 1988 profiling the H&R cars. As soon as I can shrink it (the pages are 8meg each) I will post them

BUT, PHOTOS are now on POSTED! Vist www.bluecoyoteracing.com and click on Stadium Lite for lots of photos!

Next race - Aug 2 - Podium Productions - Milestone MX Park - Riverside CA

No cash. He just emailed and said let me think it about it some.

LOL 20lbs of lead to keep the front wheels on the ground.

So I would still have my 3 challenger style Ody's and this racer. I am liking it. I got about $2000 into these 3 ody's.

You only have 2k in your ody's but theyre worth more right? From a useable point of view I bet you'd enjoy and drive the HR a lot more!

It is a FL350r powered, H&R chassis, Coleman trans, works shocks, Full A-arm ex Mickey Thompson series car.

I notice the engine was back as well. In the thread he stated the problem was fixed. Not sure how. I will not be racing it though. So not to worried about all that unless it's just stupid wheel stands all the time.

Well after thinkin a little bit I don't know If there the right thing for me, although the are very nice and would be cool to have a few to ride with friends, I really don't have room for 3 Odysseys or a way to transport that many vehicles either. I could probably work with you on a cash deal or trade for maybe 2 and a few grand on top, but as of right now I'll have to pass. I'll keep it in my mind tho, may change my mind if I can find a place to put them and such.
Thanks
Ryan

Yah he sent me some updated pics on the phone. It's really sweet. The guy at poliotodyssey are telling me to jump on it. It's a fast car and well made.

Man it's a bad arse car.
