lol fun loopholes, in IL if you use a lets say a 87 s-10 truck frame and build your own body its still classified as an 87 s-10, OR depending on what engine you use must comply with that years standards if you make a frame.
so if u find a 30 year old 4 banger (alot of the time people use old air cooled VW engines, light cheap, parts everywhere and plenty of power and bolt on power kits available for a dunebuggy/sandrail type vehicle)

as long as it complies with IL vehicle codes (bumpers lights reflectors tires, etc) then it can be licensed

How about using a motorcycle engine if you you must use an OBD2 compliant engine?

I did not know motorcycle engines had OBD2. I am surprised!

wait a minute. if it is a motorcycle then it has a different set of rules to follow.

anything under 4 wheels is a motorcycle so just make a trike.

or buy one. www.wildfirevehicles.com (I hope that is right)

I actually looked at one. 45 is what they recomend and I don't know that I would want to take one any faster than that.

*edit* dang it, they are still doing stuff to their web site. here is a place to see pics of what I am talking about http://images.google.com/imgres?imgu...6safe%3Dactive

I thought we were talking about OBD2 motorcycle engines. VT defines motorcycles as not have any sort of enclosure, so I can't go that route.

Wildfire, huh? Nifty. Wish their site was working.

The truck one reminds me of the APE.

if the ape is from india, it may be made by the same company. maybe just different designs a little to appeal to the north american crowd.

I wouldn't take that thing over 45. With only one small front tire taking most of the stopping forces I wouldn't be tailgating in it either.
