    Looks like fun. I'm curious however if it's cheaper to buy a 250R and mod it for flat track or if it's cheaper to start with a drift trike and mod it to hang with the R's? Personally I'm not doing either but it seems like a drift trike is already low like these modded trikes.
    Current Trikes:
    85 350x
    P3 (x2)

    Quads:
    2003 Polaris Predator 500
    1988 Yamaha Warrior
    2003 Polaris Predator 90

    Previous Trikes:
    84 Honda 110 (parts)
    85 Honda 110
    85 Honda 200x
    87 Honda 200x
    85 Honda 250sx
    KX 80 Trike conversion

    Gone and missed:

    The pic on the left I am running yahoo turf chief 16x8x8 (mower tire) and on the right I am running 16x8.5x8 Hoosiers in the RD20 compound. Lawn mower tires are a great tire but for the serious racer you need a specialty race tire on the blue groove surfaces like BET. Just my 2 cents

    Thats a good question, but for the sake of individuality it'd be pretty awesome to run a drift trike!

    Matt, when you say drift trike, what exactly are you referring to. I've seen lots of drift trikes, many of them look home made, lots of them look flimsy, a lot only have small engines, none of them have rear suspension, only very few have front suspension, and almost all have pvc sleeves over the rear tyres. I'd really like to see a picture of what your referring to.

    Also I know in some rule books the trike class refers to the rider who straddles the machine, not sit in a seat.
