Default Help name my go kart!

Y'all can go crazy submitting names here for my go kart.
If you want, just submit lists.
I'm a bit picky in the way that I probably won't use an exact name suggestion, just something along those names.

Are my rear wheels nylon? I think they're steel.
And yes, it's unfinished, but I'm tired of just calling it 'my go kart'.
FYI Texan, we oughta get together when it's done and race or something. Just an idea.

It's cool man, but it would make sense to have steel in the name 'cause it's got a lot of it!

In that case, this money pit isn't very deep!

Yeah there's two stubs of metal where the backrest used to be attached, but then it got cut off and welded on to the extra backrest/fuel tank bracket and the scrub brake guides. Engine clearance is very tight, it literally touches the extra roll over hoop when installed and it's hard to position correctly. As a bonus, the e-clip holding the clutch on rubs the tire when it's in a certain position. And my drive wheel, sprocket, and maybe hub is bent.
I've got problems...
I plan to get a metal cutoff tool to cut off the roll over hoop and backrest. Then weld the backrest better on the brake guides. Then I would get to figure out the fuel tank situation.
I'm actually glad my backrest was moved back, because I'm a long tall Texan.
Thankfully I have a car friend that has grinders, welders, air tools, and stuff that he's willing to lend to me. I want to grind those two stubs smooth too.
My 'car friend' is actually the guy who loaned me the Krylon to paint my frame.
More name ideas please everyone!
