I was steering toward a longer front bumper. The front end of these karts are very congested with the tie rods right in front of the pedals. Also the steering column support is so wide I don't see how a kid could even get their legs around it. If I do end up extending the frame I would make it appear stock with no visible seams and the same diameter pipe with maybe some solid bar slid in and welded for strength.

Figured out my pedals are on backwards. Gonna flip them around and that should make more room up front. Still gonna make a longer front bumper. I went ahead and ordered a hydraulic disc brake kit for it. Gonna order a longer rear axle. Anybody have experience with this brake setup? Looks like it will give plenty of stopping power.
