WR450 ICE USSC SuperKart

This originally was a reply in the YZ forum, but since the real roots are from a WR I thought it should play here also.

OK FFRacing79 you get your wish. In the USSC series, we have a number of Honda 450's and Yamaha YFZ's, YZ's, and WR's running. Nobody is afraid of them, but the racing we do puts a ton of stress on them and a lot have grenaded. So far, a stock motor will not be competitive with the best 250 2 stroke singles out there, but built 4 stroke motors have won in the ICE class. I will admit that this year was a real sorting out process and we did not have good results. This will change as we build on the experiences and get a handle on keeping them together.

That thing's off the hook......... :applause:

What did you do with the rest of the WR?

I'll bet that thumper intimidates the 2-Smokes. :applause:

I want one!!

That thing is beautiful, who did all the fabricating? I can't wait to get old now! :applause: Just kidding.

Ditto! Fantastic project! Sweet cart!! :applause::ride::p:p:lol::p:p

That is some awesome fabrication!!! I want one too! :ride::applause::p

Mostly my ideas for the fabricated parts, but the work was done by my machinist extraordinaire Eddie Wilbanks in Memphis, TN. If I can think of it, he can make it and if I can't think of how to do it, he can do that also!!!

Thanks for the kind words and I will pass the thoughts to him.
