Gymkhana doesn't need to be limited to police motors nor big cruisers

He'd still lose against cars on a car size course.

And a car could not do that course without a ton of out of course excursions.

I see an apple and I see an orange. Both tasty fruit, but not the same. And at the end of the day, both potential fun. So does it really matter?

I am curious though, is the helmet a legal requirement down there? And why place the headlights so far back they're impeded by the open wheels? Seems like they're there just to make it legal for the road, not to allow someone to drive it at night.
I was out at lunch last summer and saw one of these parked. Talked to the owner for a little bit, and he said he had to add a few parts here and there including a pair of DOT Harley headlights in order to pass inspection. I guess they really are bare bones from the factory (or assembler or whatever).

I don't have a great interest in cars, they're primarily just transport to me, but being an Aussie I have always thought that an Elfin could be a hoot to drive. The Atom looks like it could be even more fun on a windy road.

Those are based on a Miata chassis I believe.

I take it Killboy doesn't go out during the winter season even if it gets into the 70's? Sure was nice having the highway to myself two weekends ago.

I was hoping getting pics of me in the opposite lane, using improper turning techniques, while flashing my boobs at the cameraman.

You're thinking the Exocet.



The Rocket takes a Ford 2.0L ZETEC FWD motor and mounts it in the rear.
