Three-wheeled drift car

        Leave it to forward-thinking New Zealanders to ride down the mountain on a Huffy trike. Back in 2009, New Zealanders began fitting the rear tires of their childhood classics with PVC hubs, which reduced grip and allowed the rear end to slide or skid in corners. Thus, three-wheeled drift was born. Motocross racers and daredevils in the American Mountains took up the sport after watching videos on YouTube, and the American Drift Trike Association now hosts events across the country.
        Last year, Local Motors launched its own drift trike.css-1kk1geb{-webkit-text-decoration:underline;text-decoration:underline;text-decoration-thickness:0.125rem;text-decoration-color :#1c6a65;text -underline -offset:0.25rem;color:inherit;-webkit-transition:all 0.3s facilitates I/O;transition:all 0.3s facilitates I/O;word-break:break-word; font-weight:bold;}.css -1kk1geb:hover{color:#595959;text-decoration-color:border-link-body-hover;} Verado. But there are limits to simply relying on steep hills or drift towing, which is why Local has now electrified the Verrado. A hub motor on the front wheel provides 1000 watts of power, while a lithium battery mounted on the rear axle provides approximately 45 minutes of runtime. A twist of the throttle propels the 73.5-pound bike to 20 mph, which is surprisingly fast when you’re sitting so close to the ground. The 10-inch kart tires on the rear wheels feature ⅞-inch PVC bushings and are rated for 300 to 400 miles. “I don’t think of it as a commuter vehicle,” said Matt Jackson, a mechanical engineer at Local Motors. Maybe not, but if your commute to work has some hairpin turns, this could be an invigorating way to start your day.
        Controlling a skid is not easy, and you will most likely slip for the first time on a slide. To avoid pointless 360-degree turns, Rael Noonan, co-president of the American Drift Trike Association, has advice for every new rider. “If you make a sharp enough turn, the tricycle wants to come free, and the best thing you can learn immediately is to counteract the turn,” he said. “No matter which way your rear wheel is sliding, you need to turn your front wheel to match that.”
