Default New to the karting idea

Really been into the idea of these small projects that dont cost all that much. Found this forum and am really interested in making one **** of a build i have already built a decent go kart from many trips to princess auto and my dad built a barstool from bmi karts parts. I want to now do a $0 racing karts style build. Should be a challenge but i am up to it.

Hey, another Canadian? Whereabouts are you?
Welcome to the forum, you'll find a lot of solid info here. Feel free to start a thread on your build, and be sure to post pics!

hey cool.. im about an hour from Loyd here in alberta
good to meet ya neighbour!!!

im only about 30-40 mins from cold lake as well.. lol.. in Bonnyville..

on a side note, be interested to see how the BMX bike thing turns out.. hehe.. that would be a nice light deal.. i used to be an avid BMXer. lol

im looking at making something more or less the same as the MXB Motorcross board.. hehe, using a chainsaw engine for wieght savings n all that.. lol i think that would be fun

be interested on seeing how you deal with the clutch n all that...

(Some one should realy just start fabricating either replacement clutches, or chains and secondary sprockets so ppl dont have to mess with teh original clutch/sprocket setups.. lol)
