    I wish I could build one of these

    Seems like you're seeing more and more of these 3 wheeler design concepts. Anyways, I don't mind paying $10.00 a gallon for gas, as long of course.....the vehicle gets atleast 200 mpg. :) Laugh at High Gas Prices With a 282-MPG VW

    Just how QUIET are they ???

    I watched the dueling Titans video, and they almost sound as a street scooter, but hard to tell. Obviously, the more you throttle up...the louder it gets. I bet if you get a heavier muffler, you might get some further noise suppression.

    Just how QUIET are they ???

    I've noticed that some of these conversion suppliers advertise their engines as being 'quiet' some even super quiet. But quiet as compared to what....a lawnmower? I know for a fact that even leaf blowers can make quite a racket of alot of noise. Perhaps someone has posted a video clip with sound...

    I wish I could build one of these

    Well they said that 4 bucks a gallon couldn't happen either. Actually 7 bucks a gallon might be a bit conservative considering a looming war with Iran...and the eventual shutdown of the Straits of Hormuz. When you see Americans flocking to Mexico to buy gas, well it just goes to show you our...

    I wish I could build one of these

    Makes sense. I got an inside scoop from someone working in the refineries that gas prices will be 7 BUCKS this summer. So thinking 'small' is looking better with each passing day. :)

    I wish I could build one of these
