Building a race car in 2 hrs and for less than $5…sounds impossible right? :book:

I went to the dump Saturday as I do every week, I was bs-ing with Bill and he says
I got you one of those plastic cars you wanted.

Sweet……we went to look and this is what I got for free a gator 2x4





Notice PO had added traction via "studs" dry wall screws, quick easy mod



Those gotta go, since I don't want to mess up my driver's arms or legs or what ever else if he gets run over by this monster.



I had to make it roll easier so out came the rear end, and then took apart the gear boxes and removed extra parts

Stock:



Race prepped:



PO apparently was hard core and stripped the gears out



I didn't fit in this thing, go figure


So I unscrewed the seat and moved it back



Ugh oh!!
Clearance issues


So out came the screwdriver and I removed the seat arms



Still having issues so out comes the grinder and cut off wheel
A cut and a few holes later



Walla!!!


Took out the gear shifter, it had seen better days before a dog or rabid raccoon ate it

Then yanked out the wiring and gas pedal

Parts removed and discarded


I know your saying; you can't fit in there…

HaHaHa Bite Me:thefinger:


So all I gotta do is throw some paint on it (that's the $5 in this build)

And put the Isuzu emblem on

So lets go Barbie Jeep racing…c-ya on you tube

yes he did!!! we can take him out with the gator, he'll never know what hit him and wonder what all those little "x"s are from :lol:

You need to install a CD Player and some speakers in the gator...

Waiting for the race vids !

Did you forget to take actual 'progress' pics, or did you post the same pic three times, for comic effect ?

I think the ones whose 'pusher' just keeps on pushing, all the way down the hill, should be disqualified. :wink:
