Default 2020 - Mini monster truck kart

Hey Everyone, I just discovered this site and I think my project will fit in perfectly here. I’m building my son a mini grave digger monster truck go kart from scratch. I did start the build a few weeks ago so I’ll post everything in order. My son fell in love with monster trucks so I decided to skip the cheesy power wheels and build something a little more substantial. The build will have a 44” wheelbase and use a predator 212. It’s sitting on 22” tires. I’m trying to make it as scale as possible.
