Note that the motor is .66 (point-six-six) horsepower, and not 66 HP as the title states.
66 HP can kill you!

You realise that thats only about a 33 ford v6 if its 66 hp. But, .66? I have a more powerful air compressor.

66 would be insane.

When I read the title I thought "I nominate him for a Darwin award by proxy if he gives a small child 66hp", but 0.66 hp sounds just about right.

"The Rust-eze, Amsoil #95 Chevrolet run good all day. On the first caution Daddy put a couple of rounds of wedge in it and on the restart, she was hungry so I just let her graze.."

That Dad's awesomeness is vastly increased as he's got his son actively working on the mod, too! It's not just something he did for the boy, it's something the two of them did together.

Epic win.

Can we put this and Kathryn's Fiero in a category of "best parents ever"? These kids aren't going to grow up into the sort of people who call tech support because the cup holder on their computer broke :)

Amazing! If only the company produced those!
Wow! Now that is awesome. I wish I would have had one of these instead of a Barbie jeep!

That's terrific! Not so fast as to be particularly dangerous, but fast enough to be a real thrill ride for a kid. Perfect! Nice work!

Hmmm. I sort of took the other approach.... Leave the drive system alone, but switch to renewable energy.
