Default Want to build go kart with Friends

Hey everyone Iím new to this website and havenít had much time to see whatís what but Iíll get straight to what i need some advice on. Me and my mates are planning on building a go kart from steel square hollow tubes im not sure what the best mm tubes are for the project but we know how to weld etc. We are planning on using a dirtbike engine and reusable parts from other things such as brakes etc. I know this post isnít much detail Iíd just like to know whatís the best steel I should get and how much Iíd need of it. Also we have a few plan designs

I think you should take a look at kartfab's website (KartFab.com)
or his build thread for that matter
he offers free plans on how to make a square tubed kart..
and at least can serve you well for some good hints, tricks and materials
And with any modification to that or more in depth questions, just feel free to ask
