    Go cart? Sounds like fun. But I have no idea, sorry.

    years ago my Father and I went to sears when they used to sell gocarts and we looked at all the styles and options that each cart had and my father took his tape measure and he got some ideas and made one at home.
    I wound up taking the engine off his Tiller and run it till it burned up..ha ha
    then I came across a 8hp engine with electric start. took out the crankshaft and had a friend of my Father's turn down the crank so the clutch would fit.
    a battery tray and it was off.... never knew how fast that thing would go
    it gets scarry when you are only a few inches of the street. .oh those were the glory child hood days..
    I sugest you go and look at carts in a store and see how others are built and decide what features you like and are willing to build in yours.
    hope this helps

    My boy(6) said "Dad,can we build one of those?!" I quickly answered with "We can build 2 of them!!!" I need a Pro-Tools bender first.

    Wink

    Id have to agree with Richard on this one, go to a store and take some measurements. That is a pretty sweet Buggy though, Id defiantly go with that if the budget and fabrication equipment can support it.
    When in doubt Weld It

    Default GO Kart

    Here is a good web site to get info from....

    http://www.spidercarts.com/

    I would post a pic but it seems to be too big? Not sure how to reduce it but I'll have to get back to this when I find out. I have 2 of these in the process.
