Mine did without any help from holding it anywhere. from my go kart build off winner. In the burnout box at the drag strip !

sorry only one I got. 3-wheeler just stands straight up and the mini Dragbike isn’t done yet.

Sadly the Hothead has a flat tire and an incomplete Tillotson carb swap (turns out my existing header blocks the throttle linkage, so it'll be a bigger project than I thought).
On the plus side I'll be getting a race kart from a friend!

So we are giving up on posting a chrismas/ new years burnout? 2 years ago counts?

Me and budget are the only ones that completed the challenge, go out, do a burnout, film it, post it.
Oops, didn't realize there were rules
...my bad :rolleyes:

It just seemed like a good opportunity to "show off" what these little electric motors can do ;)

Can ya spin your wheel on dry pavement
...or does it have ta be lubricated? :unsure:

Im calling yall out do a new years/christmas burnout

I think the point of the thread , was to encourage others to go out and have fun, not just re-post videos from years prior, not that I do not enjoy your vids.

I have rides that can do that, but to keep with the festive theme, I used my snowbike, it was ready, so after seeing the challange, I thought it would be fun to walk out to the garage, and ya know, do a christmas burnout.

Would do one with the mower but the engine's torn apart rn.

On another note, I have a dent in the bumper of my truck from doing a burnout against it on the mower. Had no brakes at the time and a belt that was way too tight and went from reverse to first instead of neutral and smacked into it. Then did a burnout.

I got a couple of rides that can light 'em up on New Years day... just need some dry pavement like I had earlier this year.

Will have to get my son to shoot video of his father being rowdy.

Plan B will be something in the shop. (cleaning up space now)

Happy New Year.
Here is my "Yard Kart Therapy" 2019 Buildoff entry.


I set up a dash camera on the torque converter so I could see if it was pulling into overdrive.
RPMs were from 3800 initially to ~3200 when it was hooking up.

Yah, I used some bleach spray and was lifting up on the frame bar a little as it started hooking up to make the video longer.

Here's my 2020 Buildoff entry... the Dirt Bobber:

Pavement is rough driveway that is barely damp.

Makes a lot of smoke at 6,000 RPM.
