  1. +1 for adding this. It also was responsible for the first car accident.
     
  2. This baby is indeed sweet. I bet it can hit top speed in the quarter mile.

  4. I bet it would take a reheating to get across a 1/4 mile, but then again it didn't have brakes so it might coast
     
  5. i'm sure at 4km/h it wasn't to bad of an accident, the driver was probly just trying to stop it and decided to hit something lol
     
  6. I have a couple of drawings from that time, remind me to post them when I'm back from work. It was quite the accident really.
     
  7. True fact: Ben Franklin built a similar vehicle while vacationing in Cleveland. Called the 'Cleveland Steamer', however the project failed due to unknown reasons.
     
  8. This wip got some dub wheels yo.
     
  9. 15min @ 4mph = 1 mile per reheat
    unless it takes a #$%#ing long time to reach 4mph then I reckon it would easily clear the quarter under it's own steam (literally).
     
  10. The Horse Union
     
  11. FWD. Can you get torque steer with 1hp?
     
  12. Weighing 12,000kg, an accident in this thing could cause quite a bit of damage to other stuff. It's the same as a 1,200kg car crashing at 40km/h.
