We Broke our 1000cc Mini Trophy Truck! (But We're Not Sure How)
We started the day by backing the trophy kart out of it's parking space under my car port, thinking that we'd be installing a 5 point harness and some new rear shocks to help with jumping, but the trophy kart had other plans! It appeared that the transmission was broken- when you put it in gear and let out on the clutch, the engine would stall, and the mini trophy truck wouldn't even try to move. Turns out we had a broken piece in the transmission!

Thanks for Watching!

    Dude. The comment about never having enough tools, or never having the right tools, try working on modern cars or heavy equipment for a living. Had I invested the money I have spent on tools in a house or my own shop or motorcycles, I'd have a huge house, an air conditioned and heated 6 bay shop with an overhead crane, or about 10 brand new Honda motorcycles and dirtbikes. I feels ya on that one guys.

    Put a Honda VFR800 from a 98-00 engine in the CROSSKART. It's a gear driven timing V-4 and it's fuel injected. CHEAP and it sounds like a STOCKCAR. 120hp. Google vfr800 straightpipe

    yall should make a sheetmetal trophy truck body for it, if ya wanted to anyways i would do it for you im pretty good with shaping metal but im still in high school lol

    A 5 point harness with that seat is useless or even worse dangerous!! When you are building these larger projects you need a REAL seat!! Not go kart seats!! Don’t cheap out on safety!

    Hey guys. Love your show. I couldn't find the comment selection on your ct90 feed. You should clean the carb again. Pay close attention to the idle circuit.,.that's your main issue.. ie won't run w out choke on.runs better w wide open throttle...

    That's the dirtiest BMW K100 transition i've ever seen. I have seen lots of those transactions go 300,000 miles so you're mileage is not good. It is completely rebuild able. However all the dogs need to have well defined edges. I believe the warn dogs are the reason you're having shifting problems.

    I had a pit bike do this with me. Was sat idling at the top of a trail and sounded like it just stalled while I was stood away from it. Went to kick it over, wouldn’t budge. The downside was it also locked up the back wheel even if the clutch was open. Had to skid it about a mile and a half down the hill. Turned out the gearbox had silently shat itself

  • Mike Anderson

    That shift lever bounces around when you hit big bumps. I think you need to isolate it some more.

  • Case 275
    Case 275

    You need to have some type of damper in the driveline to absorb to torque from wide open to letting off the gas. The reverse torque is braking the gearbox due to the extra weight of the kart.

  • Limp Rooster

    Please put this transmission on the drag rail... i want to see that thing run 8s and I don't think you'll ever get there with the TAV... You'll never get the correct stall speed. Plus, the trophy truck transmission will be so much more efficient at putting power to the ground.

  • Randall Settles

    You guys need to move the shifter closer and make it shorter that away your shifts can be a lot faster and you have less throw on the shifter cuz when you think about it that transmission and that motor being in a motorcycle your throw is literally only a couple inches you know Movement by your foot so I think if y'all get a used transmission that's good and put it in there you need to shorten the shifter and move back closer to you so you can shift quicker and firmer

    • Randall Settles
      Randall Settles

      Not only that when Isaac was grabbing it and trying to move it it seems really heavy he'll just the weight of that shifter alone whenever y'all are jumping it and riding it around could move back and forth and try to engage it

    So i have a 1980s tri moto 125 that runs in neutral but loses power in like 2nd gear past quarter throttle and has no power at all in 3rd? It ran good untill i blew out the carbs out, n now idk how to fix it


    sounds like it might have been like that before you got it??? since the horrible pre-ownership? sludge let go and piece just happened to jam it up? you are shaking that motor and combo and jostling it way more that any street bike would ever think of.... so could have been chillin in bottom for who knows how long.... whatcha think?? thats my theory....

  • cody

    Your shift lever length might be too long . it probably bounced between gears hitting bumps and cracked the dogs and they finally just decided to break the rest of the way off when you went to move it.

    Think the shifter needs refined, seems too heavy a load on the gearbox and at speed and bouncing around, may have contributed to the issue, sayin that I've wrecked a gearbox with a clumsy shift as well but I don't think the shifter is helping.

    On a car transmission I would say the dog broke because of bad clutching because of the setup but with a bike clutching isn't necessary besides starting. Maybe it was broken just by poor rev matching in the past and eventually it got sat in a spot where gravity could pull it out. Very strange though.

    That was a lot of work just to remove the driveshaft. Why don’t you guys cut a channel in the bottom of the tube to drop the driveshaft without having to remove the entire rear axle. It would make your lives so much easier without a whole lot of initial headache.

    you need to get some muffin tins from a garage sale, or the dollar store to keep all of those small parts separated when you pull stuff like this apart. you can glue some small magnets to the bottoms with rtv so they stay put.

    the transmission issue seemed bit familiar to me. i had 250cc 4 stroke chinese MX bike and after it sat some time the clutch got sticky and after a while the clutch got stuck. but after kicking the bike on gear it let go and started to work again. and some times when i was ripping on long straightaway the gears got stuck at times and it took few seconds to down shift. but now that i think back it might be because i just used normal 4 stroke oil and not something that was meant for wet clutch so i might be the reason why the clutch got sticky
