I think my next goal will be to make a 4 link coilover solid axle front end. Is this ever done on GoKarts? Or just 4x4 buggys?

I thought about doing that, and may still do it on my kart once I do a few other things.

Here is what I have right now, it works very well, but it doesn't have any articulation.

It should work. That is what I had in mind when I started, but didn't want to spend $50 in heims at the time.

Well, if anything, it would make for a good video!

What size pulley do you have on there? Did you beef up the steering any?

I was thinking about trying to get a "double pulley" or whatever its called and run 2 belts... I woulf think that would have some advantage.
