yeah the polini kits are pretty good about staying cool with the fan shroud and everything, but on the micro car it has a lot more load on it than a moped so you gotta figure that into the equation.

they get really hairy/unstable above 35 mph or so... well i shouldn't say that, our gang has one but its pretty jacked up, wobbly forks, untrue rims, etc. either way just about any triped gets real hairy by 40, and they tear up clutches if you try to slip them, so don't plan on crazy high gears.

the other thing i noticed is that some of those tripeds have like home-made style gears that have a weird profile and mounting, you might not be able to find a replacement rear gear.
