I think what Travis was really trying to say was... When you're trying to go Fast... you have to step back, and ask yourself: "What would MacGyver do?"
Well, in this case, you need to reference Season 3 / Episode 6 "Blue Smoke, Brown Water" in which Mac had to improvise, build a scooter and win the race in order to save his friend from the evil
drug lord: Slo Lam
He had some investigating to do
He used the husks from the Coochioo-Nut plant(similar to our Native American corn
) (ground up with water, made into a paste and then sun-dried) to form perfect high performance clutch plates... No slip or drag, much better than cork
of course a hollowed out coconut halve served as the clutch cover. Local indigenous vines proved far stronger, and smoother operating than even the most expensive clutch, brake and gear cables
A section of large, mature bamboo was an able piston, and fit perfectly into the bored out center of a faux-jade Buddha statuette. The Buddha had to be turned and cut so his bulbous belly would become the head to this truly "enlightened" barrel
bit and pieces out of a refuse bin behind the Nike factory did most of the heavy lifting in terms of his fuel delivery system
and 16 empty Fanta cans (assorted flavors), patchworked together made one mean exhaust
Needless to say, Macgyver won the race
, his friend was saved and Slo Lam was captured
and sent BACK to the repair shop...
So, when you want to make your scooter go Fast... just think: What would MacGyver do
and remember.. Correct parts, and stock components don't mean anything
MacGyver/do it yourself Parts=
