Default Hello from Denver Colorado

I'm a young and inexperienced but started messing with my dads old mini bike. I swapped the old 3 hp b+s engine for a predator 212 with a torque converter and smaller sprocket. I also threw a tillitson tct carb on it and tuned it for my altitude (I hope), so no more backfiring and more power.

I recently bought a used Dingo off road kart and that's my current project. I have a light bar on the way but now I need to find a new battery and figure out how the electrical system works (I am really new to and bad at electrical stuff).

I joined this forum to find advice and expand my knowledge in all areas. Maybe make some cool friends because not many people my age like this stuff like I do. Thanks!

Start a build thread in Go Kart Discussion and add photos there. Or add them to your photo album.

Yea there's hardly any scratches and no rust. $50 still sounds like a real good deal
