    that kicks ass, i want i want. but it is another expensive hobby that i dont have cash for, but i could sell my del sol, buy a winter beater, drive it all year around (it feels like winter all year long in michigan) and put all my money into that, that could be an option

    hahaha! I love pocket rockets! Yeah, I was looking into them hardcore last year, but I figured that I would use it a few times then never again, but I might have to get one to putt around in the spring/summer in downtown Stillwater...yeah! they are $1k still right?? I saw one guy who had like 3 of these in his truck....

    i justified it like this ... its fun as hell in any parkinglot your in... and ill actually get real "use" out of it when i go to track events .... F walking the 1/2 mile or so from the staging areas to the viewing areas all day in the hot ass sun... everyone else is riding around on scooters n stuff but this costs less will fit in my trunk and goes just as fast :)
