Sorry its been a while but I got tied up with work, a bit of drama, family visits etc etc, so life got in the way but I did get to finish the machine!
Overall im absolutely flabergasted that ive created this thing! its come out looking like its been made in a factory and sold from a dealership!
The impending owner is over the moon but cant buy it just yet as his cars blown the coils and a couple other things (Nissan S13 silvia track/drift car) so thats all good coz im enjoying testing this and sliding around.
Performance wise its been a real surprise! ive made my own long exhaust to a big straight through motorcross type muffler, this seems to generate a bit of extractor type exhaust flow which helps greatly and the air filter mods actually allow a ton more air into the box. all in all I honestly think weve gone from a mediocre 7HP to a mind blowing neck snapping 8.5HP , I know I know its the smallest increase but the machine only weighs 60kg, its a good 10kg heavier than the craft the motor came out of but seems to have way more snap to it, gets to the governed max rpm (3600) a lot quicker than it did on the other machine,, this is a huge surprise because ive managed to get a good increase in performance but have still got the govener installed on this motor!
but really I still cant believe ive made this!
I took the opportunity to do some photo shopping and make up the customers favourite number for the front plate, came out quite good, I put a red glow from behind the 6's... and yes thats his favourite number (heavy metal lover too).. I showed him this pic and he almost fell over with Glee!
I always said its gonna be $1k -$1.1K. but its blown out to $1250. only coz its got my big wheels off the drift trike so they gotta be replaced! to me its worth $2500 and up, its a specially built illegal toy and has the looks and performance to boot, lets not forget all plastics on this arnt crabon wrapped, thats actually real carbom fiber used all over so he really does get something unique and special, like I said my best work ever on anything has gone into this so im not too worried if he dosnt buy it at all! and that front number plate is pure carbon, I dont think I recall seeing that on many machines of any kind in the world!
Thanks to all who followed this and yes there will be a ride video coming very soon!
