    The only problems I have are 1) 200ccs is not enough, and 2) they should use a more common 18 or 19" motorcycle wheel instead of the 17" they spec out to. Also disc brakes should be allowed.

    Been watching these kats develop there particular take on it for some time. Pretty neat little rigs but I agree; more power and better features could make them really exciting.
    Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices, but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence and fulfills the duty to express the results of his thought in clear form.

    Those are tow different cars. One is cute little putt putt and one is for a more serious use. OK, Granted car trials is not exactly a speed event. The top two cars don't look like they'd take any real abuse.
    Don\'t cry because its over. Smile because it happened

    i think w/ minor mods especially considering they are moto based not a big deal at all... minor trials rigs would be easy.


    and i think good fun.
