It was a purpose built drag kart from the 60s and it was recently restored after being found in a junkyard. Quadruple Macs. I'll try to find the details

Kendick Engineering Special dragster kart built circa 1967



Has 4 McCulloch Mc101 (125cc) chainsaw engines on alky. Thats 500ccs and a total of 60 HP on a 200 lb. kart. It ran low 11 second ETs in '68 and then was retired and went missing.





Here's a video. The driver can barely keep it straight with a little throttle
