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

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

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.

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 :)

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!
