According to their webiste, they do!

I think the supercharged version, as in the video, will set you back about $60K!

Would be a blast though! :steering:

Did anyone notice what car was on top of their list? Hint..... It's not in production anymore and last I heard durring Barrett Jackson in Scottsdale, would set ya back a mill five minimum! :eek:





Yup it's the Enzo fastest production car ever built! And this little thing is almost as quick on the track for 60k what a deal!! :worthy:

Maserati claims top speed of around 205mph. Does 0 to 100kmph in3.8 seconds. I think 100 kmph is about 60 mph anyone good at conversions?

Fear and commonsense keeps me from even attempting to build a car!

Edit: I don't really have $35,000 that my wife doesn't know about.:(

A Shifter Cart goes 0 to 60 in about 4 seconds, with your butt 1 inch off the ground
We raced at Fontana Speedway in November and with some creative gearing
We got the top speed 121 mph into turn one :steering:
You can get into a new shifter cart for about $8000.00
125cc Honda they are fun !!!!

But this thing, WOW very cool :eek:

Looked to me like speedo went to 220, but if you watch the speedo and the tach,speedo pegs and tach goes from about 10k to about 11200 rpm befor he lets off.220 kph is 137mph and add another 1200 rpm and I'd guess about 150ish! :worthy: :woohoo: www.eforecourt.com/mph_kph_speed_convert.htm (http//www.eforcourt.com)

Any one watched the show the clip is from? It is easily one of the most hilarious shows i've ever seen. They had a minivan race w/ old space box style minivans, as well as high speed hair piece testing, w/ and w/o the windscreen in convertables.

Its a great show, they highlight what cars can't do as wel, like trying to parallel park a lambo.

A buddy of mine used to race dirt track carts. I took out his "open" class cart once for warm-ups. That was the best ride I have ever had - by far! Like you said - 1" off the ground. No suspension. Lots-o-speed. What a rush!
