    I believe Sammy Hagar said it best:

    "Can't drive 55".

    How about a power to weight ratio of something like 10hp per pound. Wow, 10:1. I don't know about you but I do not want to be sitting out there when that thing really kicks it up. Can you say "rocketsled"?

    I dont think that cart would be driveable at all. 3000 pd cars with 1500hp have a very hard time getting traction. That cart would just melt the tires at 1/10 of full throttle.

    Ok so this guy is completely psycho :) LOL That thing is hilarious, I like the wheelie. what range does it have? Might have been a bit better putting it in a real race car with a roll cage

    a.) those arent the tires melting
    b.) i doubt this thing makes 1500hp. Turbine engines that small are only good for about 70, if even that much.

    Sorry but I don't believe for a minute that little motor makes 1500hp.
    I think they added an extra zero on the end,. Really think about it.
