A little something for you all, Not much but a little taste of what it can do.

wow greg, it seem to have plenty of go, looks like if you drive with to much r foot, it could get expensive replacing the rear tyre! great video have you had a chance to do some performance testing, i.e. 0-100 , 400m etc

cheers chriso

I haven't yet but it's very very quick! It hooks up real nice, goes super good in second, at around 120km click into third and it keeps on pulling strong! What is beyond there is any bodies guess, as you are already doing 160-180km. Good news for rear tyre so far, showing little sign of wear after 700km with lots of burnouts, I think it's just wearing in. LOL

Hi Greg, I am new to Tri pods,I just ordered my kit, pretty scary to say the least. i was looking at the site and saw your Tri pod, WOW, i just love what you have created, it looks so stunning, you have some really good ideas in creating something different .When i saw your i became really excited.
I have driven Andrews orange Tri pod, it is a bit rough and i am hoping mine will be better than his.lol
I say sorry to Andrew but really the old orange one doesn't even get a look in compared to yours.
thank you for sharing your because i now can see how good it can get.

Grab yourself a bargain. Like brand new without having to build it yourself.

I took a 2002 Lotus Elise 130000km $40k track car for a test drive the other day to give me a comparison to my trike. It was a good little car to drive, it handled really well but with only 130hp and 800kg it was a little under powered and stopping was average, I got straight back into the trike and seriously considered keeping it as the lotus is nowhere near the experience you get from driving the Tripod, especially with the extra revs of the motorbike engine. I am guessing the new supercharged Elise at around $100k would probably impress me a bit more but value for money Tripod wins hands down in my opinion. Cheers Greg
