Thanks guys. The bald tires might play a small part the other issue would be the hp ratings. Hahaha

Meant to edit my post with fresh pics but forgot..............

We are going full tilt at the sand dunes this weekend finally ! Gonna get some good videos from the passenger so I can make a really good YouTube video. And I’m gonna try and get it to wheelie finally so stay tuned. Been needing to update my build logs on YouTube so wish me luck. Hahaha

Well everything went great at the dunes. Beat everybody I raced and did some trail riding. Only blew out the front shocks after running off of a 5’ drop. And we did some hill climbs with all 4 off the ground.

I am currently tearing it apart and parting the whole thing out getting ready for my next project tho. Been trying to sell th whole thing for $3,000 bit no takers. I am wanting more travel and more leg room for more trail rides. So I am building a long travel Sandrail now.

Can't wait to see what you come up with. Will this be a turbocharged rail?

Probably a ecotec turbocharged mid travel Sandrail to be exact. Going fast is getting old. Just not enough options around me to do anything but sand dunes. And the kart chassis is hard on your back after a few hours.

I'm really surprised no one wanted to buy it out right from you. I would have thought somebody in your race community would have bought it and further modified it. Here's some inspiration. Granted it has a Ford 2.5L Duratec engine and a VW Passat transaxle, but should not be too far off on your plans.

Actually as usual someone messaged me from a state away after I posted individual parts. Never fails. Now I gotta bolt the seats back in. Lol
