    All you need is a radiator and some kind of transmission.

    I can't even imagine. I had a friend in school who raced 5hp B&S carts. His was a little modified and he said he was pushing about 20-25. His got up to 70mph in like 3 seconds. Just think what these could do

    use a snowmoblie engine instead,
    same 4 stroke techology with a varible speed belt trans.

    or better yet a sportbike motor

    by the time you fab a clutch system, trans, DRY exhaust, etc you would be thousands of dollars and hours in the hole.
