Very Interesting Kart from 90's

Came across this on FB Marketplace… Though it was too cool to not archive it.

Invader 4 bar


Looks to be in really good shape, or at least it’s very clean. Dual rear torsion bars & no front bar, never seen that before. Wonder who made it. Also wondering what that grooved rotor/disc object inboard of the brake disc on the rear axle is.

On a side note, that GSX-R has seen better days.

It’s an Invader 4 bar apparently. Definitely an interesting one with a torsion bar for each hand should you get taken out by an opponent.

What is that…thing on the axle next to the rear disc?

Disc brake cooling? It looks as if is attached to the brake disc hub.

Apparently it’s a heat sink yeah…

Kinda curious about what’s going on in the back. Looks different, like it’s meant to support something. Are those dual rear torsion bars?

I guess it must be. Nothing else makes sense. Never caught on so guess it probably isn’t too effective, but it looks trick, so it probably makes it faster just because. I bet it would be even more better faster if the bodywork/bumpers had cool decals. Everybody knows killer looks = speed.

I don’t see any fancy European beer in there…

Blame Walmart for lack of sophistication in their advertising.

Fixed with Trappist ale:

Any good domestic brews from your neck of the woods?

Hallmark of sophistication & culture. Especially #1.

Shiner Bock if you are looking for good help with your kart around here. Ruby Redbird if you want to keep it light and interesting.

That’s quite the description. I hope to emanate energy as effectively.

When you have to share with everyone in the pits


I have a 99 -00ish 3rail, single rear torsion bar with the same Pro Works front end with the K-bar option. The K-bar clamps are hard to find. Cleaned it up and raced in a modified Kohler class these last few years. I always liked the Invader chassis, west coast made.
