Default Re: super light friction drive for emergency.

Seen a fella on youtube riding around in a parking lot with a friction drive made with a Makita drill.

That would be very easy to build

Draw backs would be cost of batteries and short life of charge, Lithium batteries would last longest and work best, I use drills with Lithium batteries and the batteries cost $100 each plus at least that much for just the drill.

For that money I'd just buy a dax friction drive set up and put a cheap ebay bought pocket bike or scooter engine on it. All that can be had for qround $200 and could run the same fuel as the china girl.

I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
