That is one of the coolest toys, I've seen yet. For those that thought they had everything.

Ha, take the wheels off and put a couple of pontoons on it. Heck take the engine off and put it on a jetski. Then it really would be a jetski.

I still have my cart i got as a kid. it is a 60's Margay racing cart. had a mac 91B1 that was ported, decked, polished, piped, etc. my dad bought it blowed up " Earnhardt quote"

learned about 2 strokes at age 9 . been a gear head ever since. Funny thing. dad blew that engine up 3 times, i only got to drive it twice!! The cart still today has the same briggs now that we replaced the mac with. Ready for my 3 year old in about oh.... 6 months

raced factory 4 stroke for a couple years. no 125 mph but could pull 3 g's in a corner. learned slower is faster in that thing.

Still cool to take a rototiller motor made for 4.5hp at 3600 and run it to 6200rpm on alcohol and 36 degrees of timing till the valves floated. ( no risk hitting pistons, its a flathead)
