jean-michel HERBERT: again useless vid,don't get to see the set up-close.
Lyndon Pedersen: fast lil go kart, fark....
Diax1324: Sounds like a crazy little freaker.
Kevin Schultz: do you have any videos of the build? or photos?
theblueboy20: Look up the power to weight ration this things power to weight is very close to a f1 car just saying. Haha
Nikola Nikolovski: The street version was between 617–686 kg. Can you imagine how light was this version? Crazy stuff :D
mikefranky: I doubt it!!..
Shelley Bertrand: that motor can be pumped to like 500 to 600 hp
Nikolai Shriver: Im not saying that it will not move quickly, my point is the engine is not built to handle all that weight. Your guess is about as heavy as around three-and-a-quarter Suzuki Hayabusas. What is your point. Suzuki engines are, in my opinion, among the best engines in the world. But if these were meant to be produced for a car the dimensions and tranny would be different.I'm sure the front sprocket shaft bearings just love this new body and soaking up all the feedback from that forgiving rear end
y jk: @Nikolai Shriver I've seen turbo hayabusa engines belt out over 300hp, not exactly slow in what is safe to say a semi go kartt
Nikolai Shriver: True there are small displacement car engines, but all the internal/bearings/bell-housing... They are purpose built to move a car. Now this engine on here, sure it will move it, and it probably moves decently right along.. But a engine/clutch/transmission built to move 580lbs(give or take) it wont last pushing a car. I just
dont see a build like this as being worth the investment
Monkey Wrench Cycles: Looks like a Zcars kit. They're shop car is a full fiberglass bodied, turbo busa putting out 380WHP!! Just got my parts from them to put my busa engine into my classic VW Beetle...
David Stewart: Is this from z cars?
kmac720: This is a 1300cc engine. A 1400cc engine is used to move the Chevy Cruze, Sonic and other cars. I think a Hayabusa engine can move this little mini just fine.
Nikolai Shriver: Heh. . . cherry bomb. People see how fast bikes are and think 'Oh I'll put a bike engine in a car and it'll be as fast as a bike'. Bike engines get their hp from rpms, they get their speed from superior power-to-weight-ratio. Bike engines have really small displacement. Regarding clutch/engine bearing reinforcement/tranny build ect. They just dont have the displacement and engine reinforcement to move such a big body for very long. A simple SR20DET blacktop in there would destroy this swap.
