I vote go-cart
making it a 4 hp Go-cart
If you throttle them down, it'll burn out the clutch.Or throttle them down low enough to hold them down and run and jump in and go because of the direct drive.
Don't worry about us, do what you want.....and have fun.I am to old for the the need for speed. I could port it but no, I just was thinking of going back to the 1960s when I might have weighed 40 pounds. I know we could get 18 hp from a 6.5 hp preditor engine for racing. But those days are over. But I don't want to modify a old classic engine and keep it stock for the family to ride. I have a few of the Mccullock engines that would be a good choice for that. Thanks guys with great ideas though.
Guess I'm pretty much in the same frame of mind too. Putting together a 400 small block but I'm getting scared of the costs to actually rebuild a motor these days. I'm thinking a mostly stock short block with some good heads and 4 bbl carb. Be in my old Camaro with a five speed. I'm getting off topic here though, I'm good at that.Not sure if I will ever get to old for the need for speed. Got get a car back together before old and cost prevent all this fun.
Move farther north.10" of ice on a lake? Probably never seen that around here. Used to have fun riding four wheelers on the local reservoir when it was froze over with some snow on it. Haven't even seen that for years. Be kind of nice to have a real winter to play in.
