Was Good As A Toy, Not For The Real World - At Least Not The Example I Bought — Was never road registered, just for padoc bashing. For that purpose the clearance was OK but could have used more grunt than the 186 straight 6 supplied. Brakes...non-exisitant, handling...attrocious...at the time, I loved it I was only 14 at the time.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: It cost $150

Cons: Handling, power, style, bench seat (could be a positive in some cases)

Next Time I Will Do A 500 Plus Ci Engine — I love the factory colour of the HQ, its called Lone O'ranger. I have been tuning her up a little more, jetting changes and then she pops a seal on the gearbox. Ahhhh doesn't matter. So now i am looking at 11 sec 1/4's. I will post again when i run her next

Pros: What a sweet sensation

Cons: fuel economy, chews spark plugs quicker than fuel!!!!!
