One hell of a go-kart though
It's gonna be fun, just an "at the track" kind of fun, not a "let's go for a drive" kind of fun.

I could never gut my supra, it's too comfy... and I am far too fat and lazy to not have all those comforts. It's half the reason I bought the car

you can get fairly cheap aluminum tubing, thats what i plan to use. or, for a bit more $$, you can get stainless and polish it up a bit.

making all vac. lines out of piping... haha that'd be one crazy fucking job. cost too would be $$$$$$

that'd look cool, none the less, polished up and battle the notorious random blowing off of vacuum hoses the 7mgte likes to throw at us

I thought about making some radiator hardpipes for my car at work? But i dunno, i got to thinking they are made of rubber because otherwise when the engine torqued over it wouldnt give at all. I guess the little bit of rubber hose on each end to connect it would be enough give? What do you guys think?
