I want more specs.

I wouldn't go that fast in it though, the tires can't hold up for long at that speed.

That thing is fast, I don't believe the 125 mph though...I've seen plenty go 50-60mph pretty easily but not on stock golf cart tires. Mine does ~35 but i'm running ATV tires, I wouldn't do that on regular golf cart tires.

Video says: These gear heads transferred the engine of a Suzuki SX-R 750 motorcycle into a gutted golf cart.

Yeah I'm not convinced that it's going 125 MPH, I just copy & pasted the video title, but it doesn't seem to be passing cars at a crazy speed. None the less, the fact that it's even passing cars at all is pretty crazy....

Another popular engine swap are the 23hp & 27hp V-twin briggs and strattons. These engines will easily get you 65 mph. I agree, its still crazy to see a cart go that fast even if it isn't doing 125mph.

Add a roll cage, racing seats, and harness and I'd like to drive this one.
