Default Blab about one wheel peels

So heres a thread to blab about your one wheel peel karts. Why its better than everyone elses why it sucks. why you love it. And how badly you wrecked it


Ill start... love my two ken bar's they drive great and are drift monsters, i hate tecumseh ohv's more than ever lol.

Dont have an updated pic of my d660 but i have a few epic ones of my... high performance ken bar streaker pacesetter s350. Oof that is a long name. Also someone (jtspeeddemon) may notice ike from carsandcameras has a ken bar d660 Or had...

I also have a manco 405 and i dont like it as much as my ken bars to be honest. Its more of a pain in the but to work on. Everything is spaced out or shaped weird.

ALSO! you can blab about ones you used to have or currently have, it doesnt matter lol. And pics are aprectiated

Mine sucks because it tears up my yard so my dad will only let me it one area. I have never wrecked it but one of my friends hit a bush. I love it because it was my second gokart. and the first gokart I could drive in the yard.

I have a manco eliminator ss with a predator 212 and 9:1 gearing. It's great because it is a smooth ride for a solid frame, and will drift right hand turns infinitely. But it sucks because it won't get going anywhere but on grass and hard dirt, and it trenches the yard instead of turning left. But if you're on leaves or soft sand, it'll just spin the tires. Seriously, those tractor supply turf tires suck.

And the only kart I've ever flipped was my drifter. I was drifting a corner, and the front tire blew, and the rim dug in. But that's what I get for using nice rims and tubes with HF tires.

I love my one wheel peeling Starbird, wheelspin and drifting are really easy for it! The only complaint is that it only likes to turn right!
Oh well, it's a small price to pay.

I did once smack it into the curb and bend the rim.

Like a teather plane or car. Go in circles till you run out of gas.

Again. Put a kill switch on the steering wheel!

Ok, Im putting together a motor or two (well, technically 3 lol )

But I want to see how much rubber a (single?) small block can peel on the 1wd machine

And I get bored lol

I included a pic of the stock rod that has seen slight oil starvation from excessive speed, 7k + , not much longer for this world. I replaced the crank and rod, no worries. This was the motor that blew the flywheel magnet , fun times

So I guess you can call it a hemi predator, but the only parts left from harbor freight are the block, flat top piston, rings, and wristpin.

BSP forged crank, 55mm stroke
BSP performance T6 rod
Nr racing 252 rattlesnake cam, 230 duration
22lb springs
Chrome Moly Push rods
Maybe champion or roller rockers?
Genuine GX200 head, milled .050, ported, lapped to block no gasket, running 12.7 to 1 compression, probably cam2 leaded will be fuel of choice
Genuine honda GCV190 coil and flywheel
26? mm slide carb, port matched straight pipe
Shroud, recoil, ect from GX160

Just a budget build

I think she should approach 20hp, so it should peel good

Yes, of course, donuts and burnouts will be preformed

But first, ill break the "new" build in on the frame, then who knows, I might buy a new ct200 (the red one) , rip the motor off, shelf it, drop 15+hp motor on it, rip

IDK, I think a raptor 660r engine on a manco 415-10 might just be a contender. Though it world be scary as he** with half the frame being 5/8 tubing instead of 1".

The briggs still has more displacement

Was a fun ride

I dont think Id worry to much about the frame , It will probally blow the tire off before moving at all

2 more cubic inches, but not as many revs, and no transmission. Either way it would also have some horrible torquesteer.

I know, the bike engine probally has double the power output, just thought id brag about something

Just a lil torque steer

And a lawnmower blade clutch is not an acceptable substitute for a transmission? lolz
Instantly burning the tire at 55mph with the flick of a switch!

The bike makes about 38hp at the wheels stock, which is enough to move a 400 pound quad with a 150 pound rider at 70+mph. And yeah, that's just a little torque steer as you run into your lawnmower.

Id love to watch some clutch dumps! Sounds like a good time.

There's a 360ci Ford-Edsel truck engine lying around the yard somewhere....

No wait, scratch that,

Lets throw some wheels on this hog, its already got a frame !

Its only what, 7400cc or so

Uh, you don't want to do clutch drops on the raptor. It once stood straight up and landed on the rear subframe after my grandfather's hand slipped off the clutch while stopped in second gear. It's a real fun bike, and we got a deal on it. The story goes that the original owner bought it in 2004, and the first time he took it out he crashed, and racked up a $200k hospital bill. The bike sat in his garage for a while, before he traded it in on a Side-by-Side. The shop cleaned it up and removed all the spider webs, and my dad bought it about 4 years ago for $3,000. It still has perfect paint on the frame by the foot pegs.

And my grandfather has one of those 454s. The problem is that it's in his Winnebego, and he won't give it up. If he did it'd be in a mid 80s Camaro, after some performance parts of course.
