well yesterday i was taking my old craftsman mower home and she backfires 1ft long flames and the town cop stopped me when i got home and whined about my yerfdog and gave my mom a 50$ ticket he has never seen me drive it. and he said he has pictures but never showed any and i asked him about them he changed the topic. sound sketchy to me like he just wants to give out a ticket. and ive asked people in town and nobody minds my yerfdog exept some old idiotic lady who thinks shes above the law...

that doesn't seem right. we need retaliation. maybe you will have to let him rip around in it so he will stop. don't know if he has kids but if so maybe make friends with them and get them interested in karting. offer to help fix his mower and stuff and explain that you only learned about it for gokarts. or maybe we will have to organize a Karters rights group and go on a rights for karts parade through your town. he cant ticket us if we are faster than his police car.

Contest the ticket. Get him before a judge, and ask to see the pictures. If he's making stuff up and handing out tickets and collecting fines, that's extortion and needs to stop.

If there are legitimate complaints against you (even from little old busybody ladies), you need a muffler.

Yep, in the end he is a police officer, and even if he's being a bit of a jerk ya gotta at least contest it through the system correctly. And in the end a muffler is worth not ticking off the neighbors.

Welp, got some information from my VW buggy. According to the engine code, it's a December 1965 1300cc. Generator is from at least 1967 12 volt at 30 amps.

Budget, could you possibly use some punctuation lmao. Ripped around on the go karts and mower last night at like 10. Didn't break anything and the mower ran great and was a riot. We also took advantage of my air compresser wood stove and had it cranked up to 600 °f.

lol you just built this in a day????? its taking me since april 2020 to finish my wooden go-kart lol
Lol stuff tends to take two or three days to get fully done and ripping but, the four wheeler is 90% done. im getting another one today, and its gonna be a basement cold days project i think. and i can have it done within a week possibly. And btw ive never driven a four wheeler other than a 125cc that my freind had and it was a brand new one, and also my 212 swapped one. This should be a fun atv
