Trike Drifting

Posted by Tom Ford at 9:21 pm on Sunday March 1, 2009

Take one child’s toy, adapt for adult use, prepare for skinned knees. It’s stupid, but as ever, quite funny. Just a shame we don’t have any decent hills around our way that would allow you to do this without getting squashed by a truck.

    This reminds me of sneaking in through a hole in the fence of the local stadium whern I was a nipper and riding Action Man plastic jeeps down the grass banks – cheap lunacy likely to cause horrific injury, but hey..

    On the subject of small, insane and potentially deadly, I’ve got a triple header here for you. Not trikes, but karts.

    1 – Remi Gaillard taking Mario Kart to the streets, complete with bananananas.

    2 – The Gixxer kart. This is what happens when you drop a GSXR engine in a standard kart.

    3 – Isle of Man karting. I challenge you to watch this without wincing just a little bit, especially through the chicanes in the latter half of the circuit. It’s only when he slams on the anchors and the kart ahead vanishes that you really just how much they’re pressing on.

    I love it! Cheaper than buying a Skyline to drift in and you are so close to the road that the sensation of speed is probably very good. Pity our road surfaces aren’t that good, can you imagine hitting a pothole coming down hill sideways on a trike? Yikes.

    Who cares if there is no motor. Tom explains why this is simply brilliant. and i quote

    “cheap, possibly lethal, cheap, excessive bodyweight an actual advantage, cheap”

    Key word here: CHEAP

    so take yor nay-saying and negativity and go somewhere else.

    And it’s Australian! Yay for us!

    BTW, Dirty Old Man, ‘LOOSERS’ is incorrect. The accurate spelling is LOSERS. That’s right, just the one ‘O’. ‘Loosers’, although not a real word, probably refers to lose bowel movements.

    Loser…

    As I say so many times when looking through this site, I want one. The difference is I could actually afford to do this – and there are lots of hills around here where I won’t get squashed by a truck. Knew living in Devon was good for something! Think I have my project for the summer now :)

    If you haven’t watched those video posts by Kuang @8 you need to they are nuts! Drifting in a kart looks like out of control madness. For even cheaper thrills and without the need to be on a kids’ trike I came across bike drifting – without a motor – thanks to Scuderia69. Makes me wish I still owned a bike.

    These intrepid souls have modified their Mattel Powerwheels kids cars with gas-powered go-kart engines (and likely suspensions and just about everything else). Then, as befitting their aesthetic, they’ve taken them out in the snow to do fat powerslides. Heroes.

    Thanks for the recommendations on credit repair on all of this web-site. Things i would offer as advice to people should be to give up the actual mentality that they may buy right now and pay later. Being a society many of us tend to do this for many factors. This includes holidays, furniture, plus items we’d like. However, you’ll want to separate your wants from all the needs. When you are working to raise your credit ranking score you have to make some sacrifices. For example you possibly can shop online to save money or you can visit second hand outlets instead of expensive department stores for clothing.

    How long time have you been disturbed by the rings of cell phones around you, but you have nothing to do with the boring situation? As a man, born into this modern society, we have been gifted with the right appropriate for many different things, especially something related with the science and technology, such as the internet’s controller-computer which has been used globally. Besides, another important one belongs to the mobile phones world. No matter where on the street, in the market or at home, you will see a cell phone everywhere. What’s more, cell phone calls almost follow you all the time, no matter you are having a dinner or hold a important meeting or some other essential occasions cell phone calls are not needed. But the truth is human beings seem to be able to do nothing without a cell phone beside them. Step by step, one after another one, cell phones is replaced into new ones. You will know the magic power of Iphone. How many guys are crazy about this modern device?

    Although cell phones really benefit us a lot, especially on the area of communication. We make calls or send messages to know the information of our friends. We listen to music or watch videos to relax ourselves or even we surf the internet with the gadget, which is OK. But there still some places and some situations phones are not welcomed. What should you do when facing with the situation? You will ask another device for help- cell phone jammer which is specially designed for temporarily blocking the transmission of signals between the cell phone and its nearby base station. When you turn on the button and see the light on, there will be the sign of “no service “or “no signals” on the screen of cell phones, which means that you have successfully finished the whole process. When you need to use your mobile phone as normal, just turn it off.

    Until now, the cell phone jammer has been widely used, such as examination rooms, jails, courts, meeting rooms, libraries, theatres, churches, gas stations, hospitals and so on. In a word, where there needs secret or silence, there it will be. If you find you are troubled by the dins of phones for a long time, it is your time to change your life into a better one. Go directly and get a cell phone signal blocker now.

    As for how to buy cell phone jammer, following are some tips to be remembered. Firstly, make sure your local frequency before you buy one. Because different areas have different frequencies, so need a suitable cell phone jammer to match. Secondly, buy one from online stores, you know it is illegal in many countries to deal with the business about jammer, but not online, so it is wise to choose one from http://www.alljammers.com a great online store. Thirdly, make sure the quality and price of the product when you decide to purchase, can make a comparison before your decision. Also some other details you need to know.
