Re: Would you like to help a bunch of teenagers go fast?
First off that is too big a motor for a first build in my opinion. Second, it is a wrong configuration unless you are a mechanical wizard. I'd suggest as a first build a 2 stroke kit. You will all learn a lot and some will go on to bigger and better things. Keep it simple and be successful.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
