My opinion only, focus on the Dingo! Keep the Manco parts with the Manco. That's what you want. In fact, that's what everyone else wants. Dingoes are in high demand.

It's not by design, we're just random people wrenching on whatever random karts we can find.

I'm not sure you can cure or minimize the squirrely handling with wider tires, but I much prefer slicks in the 4.10/3.50 sizes. They're a bit more durable than the knobbies.

Pity you couldn't save it. Sometimes the decals preserve the paint and steel underneath and sometimes they're just hiding rust and trapping moisture.
