Heh...the nitrous injected go-ped. There are alot of speculations on whether this is real or not.

Thumbs down Re: Is this real or not?

Im sayin it not. Look at the poor photography....... the finish line pics look like they cant be moving any faster than about 30 MPH. Look at the back ground, they are barely moving. Oh and a LS1 launches alot harder than that unless you have an idiot behind the wheel.

Re: Is this real or not?

I agree. It looks like the video was speeded up.

Re: Is this real or not?

I suspect it was not real because what I thought about was how young the person on the scooter is. Looks like they are about 13 or 14 year old. I think that would be too much for a person of that age to handle. But on other hand, I was not sure because the car weighs so much more then the scooter, and making a scooter very powerful may make it also fast too and it may be faster perhaps on a short distance. Funny, this video may be someones school project. Thanks for letting me know what you thought if it was real or not... ;-D Yumiko

I wouldn't say anything about the being young part. I have a buddy who's son is 11 and runs a Jr. Dragster running 8.11 in the 1/8th mile. When he turns 12, he can pull the restrictor plate off and let it run mid 7's.

Re: Is this real or not?

please also note that a two stroke motor probably could not handle nitos as it would bost the presure in the cyl to high and blow the 8mm bolts out of the cyl. also it would run to hot.

Re: Is this real or not?

I first saw this about a year ago; my first speculations are that its fake, and heres why i think so.

I took a look at the scooter pretty closely and it looks authentic; it even has a track bar. But when i see the guy on the scooter i have my doubts.

First: The guy on the scooter is wearing almost NO protection! if that scooter can out run a powerhouse trans am why would you only wear a helmet? If he fell there wouldnt be anything left.

Second: To me the guy on the scooter looks like he's phasing through the video down the street.

Third: At the end they really did not show the scooter beating the trans am more like a second shot of the scooter driving by the camera man.

Fourth: I typed in the website they demoed at the end of the video, "fuelslut.com" and it only took me to a pornographic website.

Re: Is this real or not?

I like the music. I think the video was done nicely, especially if it is fake because it seems like it looks real, does not look to be that fake if it is. But I do like the music and the way the video is taken.

Here is a video where the riders are on nitrous instead of the go-peds. Nice tricks, cool music to go with it. By the way, the guy in the beginning is doing an imatation of Handyman from In Living Colors. I used to watch that show in the early 1990s. Yumiko
