I was told today by my kart shop that you used have at least a 12 degree pitch on the spindle bracket up to 15 degrees.

On my go kart, it is a real homemade shed kart... no tie rods and what not, just bent flat bar. it works great, I've never had a problem with it.

That looks like some good ol' Riggin right there! If it turns, then dont change a thing! If not, make sure the front tires are wider than the back and the spindle angle is correct.
