Hello, it has been a while since I have posted. My Rotary Powered Locost 7 has been up, running and licensed since 2016! Car is doing great, runs great and is a blast to drive. I also have been very successfully racing the car this year.

Nicole Johnson (pro race car driver... king of the hammers, and raced Scooby Doo monster truck for years) did a documentary on my Locost 7 and was released today.

Please take a look and let me know what you think.

Also, I have started a YouTube channel called “Mr. Cuba’s Car Culture”. I will be posting more Locost 7 stuff as well as other car stuff and driving roads.

Please take a look and subscribe! Hope to get your feedback to make my channel great. The first video I personally did involved the neighborhood teenagers to film and edit.

Thanks! Jim Cuba Chino Calif.

Great video. She's pretty too (the lady), and quite a hoot. I hope she'll road test mine when it's done [SMILE].

I subscribed to your channel.

Cheers,

Its great to know you got that legal in Ca despite all the engine work, if ever in need of motivation I'll be coming back to this.

Well done Jim. :cheers: Giant gocart is the most appropriate description, for sure. And a 13B, what a perfect match! Of course I am biased.

Will definitely be checking these out, as I'm in the infancy of a 13B Locost build.

One of his videos mentions Mt Baldy
Google maps shows it NE of LA, north of Chino/Corona area. Lots of very twisty looking roads on Google maps.

We took Angeles Forest as a detour from Lancaster/Palmdale en route to Disney. We were in my wife's Flex with the kids, so it wasn't overly spirited, but I'd love to go back & run some of those roads in a sports car or motorcycle.
IIRC, we were running at or 5 mph over the limit & were holding back the regulars. Took advantage of a wide shoulder to let traffic by & give the kids a breather, one was getting a bit queasy.
