So tell me how bad of a stupid idea this is and im curious how its gonna play out. I have plenty of parts for one wheel peel go karts and they arent street legal where i live now. So i wanna drive my lawn mower but the motor was junk and a blown transmission so i cant modify it so i just gutted it. So what if i put my engine in the back and run it as a one wheel peel?
