Hi all,

We we my son and I are new to karting. We picked up a older kart,I think a road boss anyway got it home last summer and let him ride it in tell winter now we are in a rebuild stage.

We are stretching it 6 inches,changing to 1 inch axle from bent 3/4 axle,redoing the front end from straight to 7* bent in spindle location.

The kart had a 5.5 Tecumseh that ran ok but the carb was not working right and it seemed to loose power as time went by so that will get replaced.

My son is 12 years old and he goes by skaters99.I will help him get some pictures up of the build.Me I am old 46 have fabricating experience on 4x4's and thats why I go by rockstomper.

Hope to stay involved and hang out here!!

Take care

Mike(rockstomper) and Anthony(skaters99)
