You might want to go 40 on it now, but after you've driven it at 20 you might change your mind.

Seriously, everything about this is a terrible idea.

You have an engine.
You have a live axle kit.
You're a cheap Marketplace frame away from having a decent go kart.

I'd like to see some pics of the wooden kart.

Decades ago, I built one using a 2x8 for the frame, a 2x4 with mower wheels up front, a coca cola bottle case for a seat and a pair of 16" (or 20"??) bicycle tires on back. Also had a friction brake lever for each of the rear tires and a steel wheeled roller skate for a wheelie bar.

it was great fun downhill, but a beast to pull back up the hill.

Franz Reichelt had full faith in his homemade parachute suit when he jumped off the Eifel tower.

He went splat.

---------- Post added at 07:45 AM ---------- Previous post was at 07:36 AM ----------

I have just bolted the seat down and sometime next week I am going to get the front and back wheels and tires. Thats when all of the stuff is going to be here and the burnouts will be magnificent

if this thread is about the live axle on engine, why is the thread called budget wooden go kart, with pictures of a wooden go-kart, and the first post talking about your wooden go-kart?

Changing the title in a reply doesn't change the title of the thread FYI. Don't try and backpedal on this because your idea got ripped apart.
