I could see running the engines on a modern lay-down type cart, the type w/4-wheel disc brakes and full aerodynamics.

The cart- as pictured- would become airborne over some (yet to be determined) critical speed, I'm pretty sure.

That same layout was de rigueur in the '60's, and could be found w/engines ranging from Tecumseh and B&S 3-1/2 HP to West Bend 6 HP, to Mac 91's and 101's, B-Bombs and Komet's that did haul serious A.

But we're talking 100 mph or so, this deal could be capable of way over twice that, easily- power-wise.
