Title: I dont think anyone is ready for this one

I just thought some one here might get a kick out of this one. Here are some Pics of my rb25det powered Go Kart. It Is actually a 1923 ford t bucket replica. I can actually pick up the frame and the body at the same time. The engine will weigh more than the rest of the car. all in all i think with some rather large balloon tires and possibly a wheelie bar it might be fun to drive.
the tail end of the tranny pretty much bolts to the rear end(6" driveshaft).
Everything lined up pretty niceley on the mockup. As soon as we weld the motor mounts we should be on our way to start getting things hooked up and test run it.  should be fun :skulls:

Looks like fun. Looks like your going down a different path to the usual blowen V8 thing.
It'll be cool to see a detailed and chromed RB between the rails in full view.

i can only imagine how uncontrollable its going to be. Things have been going a little slow, since i had to pull the whole wiring harness. I am sending it to mckinney motorsports to get it all checked out and they are going to set it up for use outside of a skyline chassis, or as they called it a standalone harness. once it gets back i can hooking it all up. Also i will get some more pics soon as get the motormounts finished.

stay tuned, but dont hold your breath, i have been on a bit of a go slow this last month.....funds are running a little tight......but isnt that always the case?
