It sounds like you've got a fun project. That's how I started hot rodding, when I was 14 I started building a mini bike, finished it when I was 15. One day I was trying to think of how to give it more power... So I got some high-performance model helicopter fuel (25% nitro) and poured it in! :mwink: The thing ran like a cat with it's tail on fire! Very fun.
Then I moved up to making a go-cart out of a lawn tractor... but that's another story.
There is a section of this site called "Project Journals", it would be a good way for you to keep a record of your project and share it with others.
Good Luck! :thumbup:
