Gas scooter frame - 36" wheelbase instead of 32"; this helps keep the nose down with so much torque.

Not pretty (pink shelf boards notwithstanding), but durable and fast. 22 mph with 80t sprocket; 27 mph with 65t sprocket (pace car-verified).

Instant wheelspin in grass with 80t sprocket at full throttle.

I think it might possibly develop a little torque.

lol. There was a kid on You Tube that made a 4wd gokart a 250watt motor per wheel and changed them to 1000watt motors. He never posted a video of it but I think he said that from a dead stop it throws your whole body back into the seat.

I can verify that this was some serious speed. While watching the video, I pointed my radar gun at my monitor and clocked the speed @ 900mph+. I even heard a Sonic boom as he broke the sound barrier and my computer monitor started shaking and almost exploded.
