Go-karts and Mini Bikes

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread

I'm shocked! Or misinformed.

But I think a Go-Kart or Mini bike race would be fun. (for those who don't know, a Go-kart is a tiny like car that sits a few inches off the ground, basically the length and width of the driver. A mini bike is a miniature motorcycle, complete with tiny tires sitting 1 to 1.5 feet off the ground.

The smaller they are the more ridiculous.

Of course they would race them around a flat track with hair-pin turns and the glorious straight away.

When I was in high school I built a go-kart from a 250cc dirt bike some fence post and some other old junk that I found around some close by railroad tracks and factor dumpsters. We had clocked it at 80 mph with a friend racing along side in his Trans AM. It was great and alot of fun to build! Great sugestion.

i think that would be an interesting show.the only good races they have done were in water and on a dragstrip.

I forgot to mention.

Since Mini Bikes can be assembled fairly quickly they should probably build two each. That way the two teams have a chance of taking 1st and 2nd place. The team members should also switch drivers.
