Default Parts help please.

I am planning on building a go kart and want to know every single thing I need from frames to engines to wheels and back again I need to make sure that nothing is forgotten. Thanks in advance.

Ugh. Uh, maybe be more specific on what direction you're headed in? What style of kart? Goals?

I'd read up at the root site, HERE and/or use the search function.

This ain't rocket science, my dude.

I know but I was disappointed by the shipping price from America and have no idea where to find go kart kits in Canada.

What are you trying to make, a Mach 1 racing kart, a yard kart or something in between just to bomb around on?

Thought you guys rode snowmobiles basically year round.

Well..
you WILL forget half of the tiny bits..
and so do we;
but usually that's no issue but just another order to make (or hardwarestore to visit)
So don't get too intimidated...

frame, engine, brakes(!!), wheels,
sprockets and chain, clutch or torque converter,
steering(wheel, shaft and column), pedals, seat,
rear axle, front spindles and tie rods
throttle cable brake-actuator of choice-
bearings and bushings for all rotating parts

And tons of nuts and bolts in various sizes

List mostly complete I hope
