Thanks for the input! still trying to decide how I'm going to mount up the bearing carriers/axle to this thing, but will definitely be some gussets on it once tacked up.

And I'm terrible with upholstery stuff, have a friend at a shop that specializes in aircraft interior that will do up the seat for me

I'm wondering if this will be too top heavy, with the driver sitting in the basket?

Just go straight.
And wear a helmet.

I agree. Most shopping cart go karts I've seen have lowered the basket.

Unless you are this guy.

It's already sketchy as freak standing on the back of a commercial stand on mower going 5mph or the Z-Sprayer I use at work. Can't imagine doing 30+ on this thing lol.

I guess you are sitting about the same height as a barstool racer, right?
But for some reason those look more stable than this. I dunno???

Looks cool so far.

Haha thanks everyone for the comments! I love that I giggle the whole time working on this thing .

Today I wanted to tackle the rear axle, and honestly couldn't come up with something I felt really good about, but here is what I whipped up. It will be gusseted underneath, feels pretty strong without the bracing so far.

Haha yes, definitely not planning on competitive racing with this one

High COG + Fixed axle it is not going to handle well, might be fun with some drift tires down the road however
