Go-Karts with motorcycle engines on nitrous? Yup they are real!

What's the craziest thing you've done this week?

1y ago

Have you ever asked yourself 'what if?', for example what if you put the biggest possible engine into a go-kart, aaaaaand then followed it all up by adding some nitrous?

No? Well, worry not because some brave souls from The Renegade Racing fuels UK Drag Karts Series (yes that is a bit of a mouthful) have asked that very question. The result? Nothing short of legendary.

Check out the full film on the 21st of December here on my DrieTribe and YouTube channel. Find out what if any car can catch it down the 1/4 mile and just how fast it got down the legendary Pendine sands.

What's the most bat-sh*t project you ever build/saw? Let us know in the comments

  • I had a go kart with 400cc Kawasaki 2stroke from a snowmobile as a kid. These things make that look sane by comparison.

    • Yeah, 400cc 2stroke, it was rated at 40BHP. We used to run a little more oil in the pre mix for the summer than we did in the winter.
