Its a custom TAG Kart, same chassis, wheels etc. though not a shifter like the one in the video, however it will be capable of hitting 75-80mph depending on the gearing. Its going out for powder coat on Monday and hope to have it the week after next., I will post some pics.

WOW Sounds like an awsome ride. Will be looking forward to the pics. Any plans on the gearing your going to use?? Or do you already have it and need to put it on??

Karts can be pretty darn quick, with shifters hitting excess of 100mph all while sitting within an inch of the ground. Mine isn't a shifter either so 80mph is what I would expect it to top out at. One of these days I'll get a speedometer on it to satisfy my own curiousity. That, or I've really been dying to run it down a dragstrip! Mine wouldn't have anything to speak of for a 60 foot time, but I'd liek to know what MPH it hits the 1/4 mile at.

Running a red light ticket $145

Passing a car on the h/w while on a go-kart....priceless
