Resurrected. MUA HA HA HA!

As much as I loved doing the kartrods & making oh... 5 different versions of sarge... there can be only one sarge.

Anyway, Sarge II's frame... welp... meet Urban Defiance II.

A slammed street racer, just like she was meant to be.

Best part, I tested this frame so it's all functional and probably is the only one I made that is more fun to drive than Sarge.

Yep.

I think the cooler should be in the cart so the wheels can touch the ground, and you can take your beer with you!

Presumably at this point the cooler has been emptied of its delicious contents and is now being used as a safety mechanism to prevent inebriated shenanigans. You can sit on it and rev the engine and shout SCREEEEECH SCREEEEECH which, in your fuzzy state of mind, will be just as fun and infinitely safer.

Correct! There's a little from all the others in this one. What I should do is paint the thing shiny black, turn the front grilled pieces vertical... and call it the alien.

There is NOTHING like the joy of pulling out a fresh GX200 for this ride.

You see, in the days since our track went to the Briggs LO206, the Honda's got strewn all over the state, but I kept my eyes open for em... and of course, collected a few.

For UD2 here, nothing but the best. I watched this motor a few times smoke my little girl I the early days and it was a backup motor... so, she's purdy.

Anyway, couple that with the stuff I dug up in my boxes of stuff... and we should have one very fast ride.

For clutches, we have the noram GE's. Heavy shoes, assortments of springs to set the engagement. Teeth: 17 to 20 (20 not pictured)

For rear gearing, we have 58 all the way down to 52.

With a typical RPM of these engines (at the track in the day) being 5100 (although they'll go more)... the numbers look promising. Rear wheels, 12" dia.

This'll be fun.

This particular front end happens to be a fiberglass boat trailer fender, and the metal was cut from the back stainless panel of a water cooler.

Yep.
