Default Need help with new build. PCR JAUGUAR (MAYBE)

So yesterday i purschased a go kart frame (see pictures) amd it has a couple of peoblems and i am not sure how to fix them. I got the right hub and the sprocket holder out but the axle is stuck and the keyway from the hub that i removed is still on the axle and the bolt on the other hub is stripped. Even if i manage to get the bolt out of that hub where could i get a replacement? And how can i get that keyway off.Another problem is that the brakes dont work, the go kart is made from pcr and is a 1999 model, i am not sure exactly which though.And last do you maybe know where i can get replacement parts for it? (i am thinking that the model is a pcr jaguar, but not sure)

the key is indexed (it has little nubs that fit in boreholes in the axle)
so never try to hit it sideways otherwise those nubs can deform and act as a rivet.
Instead, soak it in penetrating oil (PB Blaster WD40-penetrating specialist or alike)
then, with your nice rubber mallet slam the key (IN!) then turn the axle 180° and hit it.

In case that fails
if you want to reuse the axle (Which I assume) do NOT heat it!

get a set of gripping pliers, and pull the key straight up instead (the key will be ruined )
since it's close to the end, you might be able to feel the nubs from the inside
(it's a hollow metric axle, right?)

if so, you might be able to lever against the nubs and push the key out.
after making sure the nubs aren't peened over the best thing to use is penetrating oil and patience really.

Almost every part is generic.. so righetti ridolfi has about all you might ever need.
