Default New to the group, thought I'd share my project.

This is an older Manco Yellow Jacket. I restored it from the frame up, and stretched it a foot since was too short for practically anyone but a midget to drive! Enjoy! you can see video of the restoration process at my youtube channel, they are public, just search "mapaladini"

That's cool, nice work. That frame did look a bit short!

Good job, nice kart, can't wait for chapter 5.

Just a quick tip for anyone else who wants to stretch a frame: try to stagger the cuts/welds & always use sleeves or plugs. That way, if it does happen to break, it won't be a total fail
