  • Bar stool racers?

    Have any of you guys heard of barstool racers? Well there pretty cool and myself and some guys from work are gonna build these things. Now if you can just imagine a full grown man on a barstool doin bout thirty mph around a dirt track at a BBQ hmm think Ill call the er for reservations. All I have left to figure out is were Im gonna put the cup holder?

      I am 17 years old and this is a Barstool racer i built from the ground up, it can rev up to 9,000RPM+ the motor is a sleeper, nothing stock with the internals, but the outside apperence is, and it also has a Dry stage 1, and a Wet stage 2 Nitrous shots, about 27hp w/o nitrous, and you probley could mutply that 27 hp by 1.5 and get the hp # with nitrous. it has a 6:1 gear ratio, and on paper it says it can go about 90s, but add some of the factors in and it probley can go about 75, i have personaly gone 40-50s on a strip, and the engine is only moving about 4500-5000 RPM, thats all w/o nitrous, with nitrous i can go about 0-30 in 2.5 seconds, and i never gone any faster than mid 30 with nitrous (too Quick), the clutch is a Horstman REDHAWK w/ a 1" bore crankshaft, to a 3/4" bore crankshaft. To stop the thing i have a rear honda CBR1000R brake kit.

        That's a pretty cool bar stool racer. The nitrous is the icing on the cake. Nice job Gordon

              I remember the first time I ever saw one of those things. My dad would never let me get one, but now I can make one.

                    ok, I'm just getting way too old
                    If I were young, I'd make one (they DO look really cool!!!).
                    Something about what my mother said when I was younger:
                    "YOU COULD KILL YOURSELF DOING THAT!!!"

                            They use to do that around Bochman lake in Dallas, maybe they still do.

                            The fellow that always won the gas division was a friend of mine. I didn't even know he was into that. He was a Mercedes mechanic.

                            The last time I saw him, I had gone to a place called the Windmill Theater (a supper club) in Dallas, to see a fellow named Todd Rungren. I had one mixed drink, and even though the show was great, i had to leave as I started feeling poorly...........forget it this is a long story....
