Default Hello from Birmingham Alabama

Hey guys. I just added myself to the map... And here's my intro


I own a Murray Explorer, have had it for almost 2 years. It's got a Predator 212cc engine on it. Only mods so far are:
- I replaced the front wheel bushings with bearings
- Put street tires on the rear
- Deleted governor
- Centrifugal clutch swap and jackshaft plate delete

My future plans are to:
- replace the front springs
- nice steering wheel
- nicer seat
- build the engine to be fast as ****

You might catch a couple questions from me here and there, but for the most part I can figure this out myself. Karts are way easier than most other projects.

I should also add that I have a Youtube channel that I have been documenting the build on for the past 2 months. I am by no means popular, I just kinda do it for fun and to keep track if my own build lol.

Welcome. I subscribed to your YouTube, I also have a small YouTube channel. I’ve been focusing on go karts lately, but historically it’s all over the place.

Thank you for subscribing! Maybe you can find something you like on there, or not. I try to update weekly so eventually I'll have a nicely built up channel.
