No video or audio, but the best engine sound I know came from my '86 VFR750 with a Yoshimura race pipe (short can).
That thing could crack bus windshields going through the Lincoln tunnel. Loads of fun.

I'm from Detroit and this is the kind of stuff I grew up on. If you are any kind of gear head and go to mid Florida do yourself a favor and go to Don Garlits' Museum of Drag Racing.

I'd love to try karting some day. How much of an investment is it to take on that hobby?

used to drive karts as a hobby during the summer. my friend is/was a pro kart driver. he taught a bunch of potential "F1 guys"...

If you just want to do laps its not too bad....but if you get into racing its VERY expensive.

A brand new kart with a 28 hp Rotax Max engine (Spec engine with centrifugal clutch and electric start and rev limiter to keep maintenance down) costs about 8500. The engine will need maintenance every 50 hours or so. The engine in the video is cheaper to buy...but revs super high and needs very frequent maintenance and parts from italy... much more $$$ long term. Also it is direct drive so to start it you have to run next to it and jump in like in the video

Track time is usually around 50 bucks a day. Of course you need a trailer to carry it around, lots of metric tools and somewhere to keep it all....

If you like adrenaline however....theres nothing like going around a corner at 2.5g...:)

04-01-2013, 08:14 PM
ummm never mind how many gs....2.5 might be a little high....but its lots of gs...at least I bruised my ribs pretty bad one time and i was wearing a rib protector too...

Don Nguyen
04-01-2013, 09:16 PM
Wow that is quite the investment indeed. Not sure if I actually want to do full on racing, but just a few laps here and there with some friends was what I was interested in. I'll have to see what my local track charges for some casual karting fun.

pretty cheap karting out here so i did that for a while so yeah

kartman35

Casual karting fun usually runs about 20-25$ for ten minutes and most places will organize mini grand prixs for groups including 5 minute practice 5 minute qualifying and a ten minute race for around 50 bucks per person or so.

However they are usually built like tanks with massive bumpers all the way around and 6.5-10 hp lawn mower engines with very hard tires (Soft tires are the most expensive aspect of karting...they wear out pretty fast). Don't get me wrong it can be a lot of fun, but the difference between that and the kart in the video is like a prius vs a ferrari. (And they don't make that sound either).

Some places will rent high performance karts, but there's usually a course you have to take, and the karts are fragile so if you run into the tires you'll do $damage$.

I guess I misunderstood when you mentioned the word "investment"...sounded like you wanted your own equipment :)

Don Nguyen
04-02-2013, 02:54 AM
I had always thought about both. Casual would just be fun here and there, but some real track practice and stuff always interested me.

No video clip but the sound of an old thumper of an engine on an old timber fishing boat especially when it's just starting out from the jetty: Thump---Thump--Thump-Thump-Thump-ThumpThumpThumpThump . . . . . in accelerating cadence.

And, just about any Ducati V-twin calls my name I reckon!
