Go kart but instead of a centrifugal clutch, you use a differential as a jackshaft and a brake caliper to create a manual clutch. Add foot pedal and preload spring and your done. Heavy launches for days!

Stage 3 or 4 predator 420 on a baja minibike or their successor the Massimo mb200. PS, you'll need wheelie bars, and good life insurance. And maybe one of those bubble wrap suits.

I don't know. I think that a supercharged stage 3 670, with nitrous would be cooler than a turbo 212 or 420.
