Those Baja buggies that colleges and universities have built for the competition are awesome! That's what has been my inspiration for my future build. The rules for it are a great outline for builders I think.
In the age of information, ignorance is a choice.

Well... i'm 21, only drove an go-kart once (it was an off-road one, in a shopping center's parking lot, about 2007-2008), always wanted a go-kart for me, i don't have drivers license, never drove a real car, i've tried to learn how to drive a motorcycle with my father but i was unsure about that, so i stopped. I'm broke since 2018 because i can't find any job

Solid category 3. 63 years old. Still feel young. Weigh what i did in high school. Mostly into airplanes. I currently own 13 of them. And 10 cars 16 motorcycles 5 karts and on and on. It takes 6 hangers to do stupid crap like this. I probably will never retire. So it is possible to stay a kid forever.

Been about 6 months, i can say I really like the format, young and old working together for fun. I was blessed with a smart alike dad, that drove my need for speed. Had been racing and bmx trick riding for several years. Even sent pictures into bmx plus magazine.
The smart part was I wanted a motorcycle! Mom said "no we are not buying him a motorcycle" she was an ER nurse.
So I was 13 or so, drove dad to somewhere outside of tidewater and he filled the back of the blazer up with a frame,fenders and 6 or so milk crates of parts. We stopped at auto store, he bought a manual and a $9.99 tool set, you gotta fix it to ride it.

Oh and mom was !+@$2 ****ed

Next thing you now, 6 months later I was terrorizing Godsnell hope park in Hampton VA with my buddies

Thank God they didnt take riffraff to jail in 1984 riding dirtbikes on city streets...

Great forum folks
