THat pitman arm is actually really creative. Does that set up mean you don't have to adjust the spindles?

Engines That is a good idea for the class swaps.

So it seems the whole kart is a good design, I agree . Oh, and that commercial looks like so much fun!

Pretty much...

I first saw a McCulloch kart on American Restorations (a model previous to this one) & thought the steering was great... & they came up with it way back then...

Yeah, I saw that episode too, they sure did some good work on it. They chromed up the sprocket and parts of the engine and a bunch of other things. That puppy was sharp and show room ready.
