Since it is so torky, a bag of cement in the back won't hurt in drifting.

From my years with a 73 Javelin, i can imagine your go cart is a bit wild to handle on cornering under power. Mind you my 73 had a 304 and open carrier. Found not enough traction even with E60 tires, making power turns. Rear would love to chase the nose. Plus, even with staggered shocks, wheel hop was bad on good pavement.

I guess them years i had, made it easy for me to get accustom to snow in the mid west.

Thanks for opening my eyes to an engine that I never got to understand by lack of support and it's under rated potential.

I think the custom modding part is more fascinating than the engine. It's truly a wolf in sheep's clothing.

Thanks for the positive comments.

The car's current routine is to run around a circle driveway on a regular basis (to circulate all the fluids and keep everything in good working order) while Rebel/M-XRV8 gets built.
