Not sure what color,as I do not hunt really,while I enjoy shooting. I might match it to my ecoboost..

Yes they built high speed tanks for movies,stuff for the military,fire,and law enforcement as well...They have moved into also doing stuff for disabled vets,and others....this is their 3rd version which as gotten better each time....
most companies that make this type of stuff it's just a seat on top of a set of tracks,this allows you to go somewhere and bring your chair as well...but it the down side is you can not just put it in the back of a pick up truck..
i am going to hopefully get them to send pictures as they build it...
I never saw their show,I found them on YouTube while looking at other types..

Nope,well I could install a big rubber strip on the bottom,and call it the squeegee option,for all the water we get in the bayou city (Houston.) and push all the water down the flooded streets we have,lol...

This post got start twice by mistake ,sorry I guess I hit the back button or something..
anyway it's got a 800cc 100 TQ 4 stroke motor in it...
i am really seriously thinking of a turbo kit for it,I will call Howe and Howe to check their price vs just me installing it..garret makes a good go cart kit for it,which I can just change the plumping around to fit the body and the manifold,although long term it maybe cheaper to have them build it from just a turbo as a starting point..
eric you up to doing a tiny ecoboost,lol

Hey what about a electric turbo,lol although it only makes 2psi I used to think they were all scams until I found someone who uses a brushless motor with a true turbo housing and wheel...
just need 4 tiny forged pistons and rods..maybe port the head now we're really cooking,lol...

Lol never,lol I have to get around in the country somehow,it gives me away to be able to go and have fun with my 11yr son once I get moved...I can run the dogs I want to train to give away to vets etc etc...
I understand the risks ,but this has been built many times over for other people and I can not find a single bad word about it,and it's their 3rd design which by far is better than the others each time it comes out...
never Surrender to my wheelchair screw it,lol....

I am thinking black all black as I have not seen any yet,but I have had some true fire stuff before,and thinking of teaming up killer paint again....for those that have never heard of him he invented Flames that look real....so much that once a helicopter he had painted flames on landed in a parking lot of a restaurant and there was a dozen calls to 911 that a helicopter was engulfed in flames trying to land,lol...it was on some tv show like 20/20 or something a while back..
Anyway here is some of his stuff..

While I like the black idea after seeing the gray bomb,and the green bike,and blue spit fire on the propeller I think it is I am a little pulled in different directions on color...but if I did go black I could also have him paint some matching stuff on my ecoboost but just in small areas nothing as crazy as what I am thinking with the RIPCHAIR...
