That being said internet piracy is not a joke, and shouldn't be done, not to mention in public on this fine site.

I like how its turning out gokart 14.

And blaz, he said that they were his fathers original plans, and he was the one that offered them so its not anything illegal. Its not piracy because he owns them, or at least has permissiion to distribute them

I was referring to can't ketch me who was offering up the plans. Not anyone else... How long have you been welding gokart? Also do you have any tips for a beginner?

Oh okay sorry about that.. Un I have been welding for about a year and a few months... THe best way to get good is practice.. My dad took a class but I was better than him because I did more welding. My welds don't look the greatest, but they are extremely strong...I am guessing u mean tips for beginner welder... Ummm just practice... My practice was my basic go kart frame and it is still strong today
