Default Please help! Trying to identify a Carter go kart...

Hey guys, I'm new to the site, but not new to small engines and working on anything and everything mechanical. =)

Ive got a old Carter go kart I found off of Craigslist, and I'm having a really hard time identifying this thing... The serial and model numbers sticker is long gone, and I've been able to find everything I need for this rebuild, except for throttle and brake cables.... I've been on the phone with gopowersports.com and they may have a throttle cable that will work. But we are doing guess work here....
I may have come up with a solution, but it requires me to modify/grind to make smaller, a cable barrel end.

I've attached pics, so please feel free to shoot me any info you have guys!

Thanks for your time, I greatly appreciate any help or suggestions you may have...

Steve

Found a similar picture from GoPowerSports.com. Could be a Carter Trailrunner. This is an 07.

Maybe not. Back bumper different, wheel sizes different.
