Is it just me or does that look like it would knock you on your back if you accelerated too hard?

i would imagine as speed increase the two outer front wheels would move forward and you'd end up flying around in a superman-like position, then at slower speeds they move back for easier turning

It actually seems pretty dumb to me. Anyone who wants a fun 4 wheeler. would just get a 4 wheeler. It'd be faster, go farther, and just all around **** tons cheaper.

This really is just a 4 wheel segway. If you look while he's "picking up" the front end it behaves just like a normal seqway..only you look even more retarded.

Fair enough. Who out there has a 4 wheeler anyway?

A friend of mine actually just took first in specialty class at Nopi. He initially was going to go to nopi with a trans am and a crap load of audio. The Trans mostly stock, looks nice but nothing extreme. I think it's his one of ...3? In any case. He took first with a 4 wheeler that he rigged up with speakers and a "trailer" that had a battery amp and sub.

I'll get pictures...it was funny as hell. He only ended up making up the 4 wheeler because he couldn't refund his registration for the trans am. Was never supposed to be serious...now he has magazine coverage...lol

I have a small Honda Recon I use for hunting. It gets ridden for 1 week a year, and spends the rest of the time sitting in front of the cabin.

There's actually a measurable following of non-car mobile audio guys around. With class D amps decreasing in price and increasing in efficiency, you can build a pretty high-power setup run only on batteries and solar cells and it'll last days on one charge.

awesome:
