When the guys over at Build Break Repeat got their hands on a rotary engine with a clutch shifted transmission from some old motorcycle project there was no doubt that only bad thoughts could come next. After all, the only thing better than a rotary powered motorcycle is a rotary powered go kart and these guys know how to have fun on four wheels less than an inch off the ground. They are nothing if not adventurous, and we love them for it. This kart seemed like a really bad idea when they got it and the engine and decided on a plan for putting the two together. But how did it turn out? Well this video gives you the first glimpse as they take it for a spin for the first time. I’ve got a few things on this one that I’m a little skeptical on, but we’ll see how it really works.
Watch the video and let us know what you think. Would you have built one? What other fun engine can you think of to put into something like this? We know that we want some tire burning go karts for sure, even though they would only get us into trouble. Trouble we can’t wait to get into though!
We’re pretty sure that we’ll see more from this little rotary powered beast.
