Cool Introducing Myself

Hello fellow HotRodders:

I'm new here and this is my first post. I just wanted to introduce myself and get to know some people on this forum. I am 15 years old and I live in Winnipeg, Canada. I've always been interested in classic cars but in the last 2 years I really got into hotrodding. I dont have a rod yet (hence I'm 15) but I am workin on a barstool racer, a mini chopper bike and a go-kart. The go-kart is gonna be powered by a 340cc snowmobile engine and for the barstool racer and the minibike chopper I have 3hp engines. In the summer I might be purchasing a 1938 Plymouth (sitting in the field) for 400 bucks. I'd like to restore it.
So that's basically me,
I hope I can learn lots on this site.

Mike

Welcome to the site Mike. This is the best site I have found to exchange information and learn. There are some really knowledgeable people here that are willing to help. There is a Knowledge Base here that is full of helpfull information. There are separate boards for the different sections to help get the information quickly. If you follow the guidelines when posting questions, you usually get answers that are accurate and quick. It is a fun hobby that can last for a lifetime.

Good Luck

wlecome to the board man

let me be the first to say this .... put wheelie bars and extra wide "training wheels" on the barstool and use the 340cc engine on THAT instead

or get a 3 sped lawnmower differential and make the minichoper REAL bad *** ... with a suicide shifter on it !

just an idea ...

I wish I could put the 340cc on the barstool racer but I tell ya right now, that thing has 32hp, is a 2 stroke and vibrates like crazy. My barstool racer frame would have to be made out of 4 inch steel tubes...lol.........but don't worry, my go-kart will have a hydraulic differential (4 gear?) in the back that's pulley driven. I got the diff for free (I think it comes out of a lawnmoer tractor, not sure). For the chopper I'm still looking for a motorcycle gearbox, and if I find one you bet it's gonna have a suicide shifter. Thanks a lot guys
If you have anny other ideas of suggestions that would be great

MIke
