    I'm going to put a Toyota gas pedal on my bike

    Maybe then I'll be faster.

    Cool!

    Other people see a problem - you see opportunity.

    Excellent idea but I do not think you want to adapt the braking system they use.

    I think I will do the same. It will match the faulty engine.

    I would check out your brakes before you do that, might not be able to stop after all that speed.

    Baloney! Brakes are over rated. All that they do is slow you down.
