    I was out tinkering with ANOTHER of my turbo projects this afternoon to get it ready for the riding season and realized I'd never posted it here... So for something a little different here's my 2008 Genuine Buddy.



    This bike started off as a 125cc carbureted scooter but is now running a 300cc engine from a Vespa GTS with Megasquirt EFI and a GT12 turbo!

    Its been stretched 8 inches, lowered 2, and has a 12inch rear wheel.
    It runs E85 with a flex fuel sensor, has launch control, and two step rev limiter as well as water/meth injection.

    The original 125cc engine put out 9.5HP, with this combo I clock in at 67HP at 25PSI boost. Its stupid fun to ride and something a little different for all you turbo aficionados!

    7x HP sounds about right! I can't decide if I think it looks like fun or a death trap. I bet you could troll some folks with it.

    Its 100% both :p Its probably the dumbest vehicle I've ever built and SUPER fun. I troll people pretty regularly with it when I can get them to pay attention to it at all! I had a very angry Corvette driver try and flat run me off the road when I blew him away two lights in a row. Couldn't BELIEVE how angry he got at being beat by a little scooter.

    If I do the math on it it has a power/weight ratio of 656Hp/ton. The Bugatti Veyron only has 523. So below 80MPH I basically can't be caught!
