Default G'Day Guys!

G'Day All,

Thanks for the add onto the forum.

I am based in Australia, and always on the look-out for inspiration, help with solving issues, and a general chat.

Got into the backyard dark art of go kart fiddling to cut back on sitting on the lounge, Mechanical Engineer by trade and not really doing install works anymore as the career has progressed upwards, so needed an outlet for my tinkering ways.

Love watching the usual suspects on Youtube for creative inspiration, but their content doesn't always cover all the steps, so hopefully there;s some help to go around!

Posted up my two projects, The Money Puddle and Gobstopper. Photos are a bit out of order but you'll get the idea.

Thanks again for the add, and reading this far!

G'Day sid,

Um, I think so, I made them into 2 separate albums. They are there when I click on my profile in the top right hand corner of the screen. I was certain I made them public. Any ideas?

I see your projects in your profile. Those look pretty fancy and complicated compared to mine. I’m new here also and just got my first kart. Nice to meet you!

Ahhh.. rarely ever looked into someone's albums
that's why I haven't checked..

since we're a forum I was under the assumption you created two threads ("posting" suggested that to me)
attaching the images there and talking a bit about what's what and such..

my fault! Proceed

Yer mate, this is the first weekend in the shed in shorts and t-shirt. It was a factor in me finally getting into the axle conversion on the Money Puddle, and stripping down an old motorbike to turn Gobstopper into a shifter kart.

I'm relatively sore.

Neither were meant to be! That's necessity for you.

Up here in Texas, tomorrow the temps start to dive.
Today? High of 90ish.
Tomorrow? High of 75ish.
In Fahrenheit, mind you.
