Powersliding a T-Rex on wet tarmac





British car TV show Fifth Gear trying out the 140mph (225kph) 410kg (900lbs) threewheeler on a damp airfield.



The T-Rex, produced by Campagna Corporation, weighs a mere 410kg (900lbs) and is powered by a Kawasaki 1200cc engine rated at 148hp.

0-60mph in 4.1 seconds, and top speed of 140mph (225kph).
Lateral acceleration: over 1 g.

We've got a few in Arizona! Used to be a dealer for them out here. There's also a knock off brand that sells for a bit less that the T-Rex. The last guy I saw here had driven his T-rex to Phoenix from Canada. Had it tricked out with in dash navigation and front/rear in dash radar detection.

I've seen a couple in CA, usually one or two at some of the bike shows like Del Mar.

No reason why not if it is DOT certified, it's legally a trike. You'd have to wear a helmet in states that require them though.
