Well I take back me saying it's BS. But I think is on the edge of being a go kart. How much more do you have to go to have it finished?

The very first rule was broken. A gokart has no suspension.
From Wikipedia:
"The chassis are made of steel tube. There is no suspension therefore chassis have to be flexible enough to work as a suspension and stiff enough not to break or give way on a turn."
Is Meyers Manx a gokart? Not hardly.

Still cool! Some of the "Junkyard Dogs*" I've seen patrolling the scrap-yards here in Phoenix are almost as crazy....

*Running vehicles pieced together at a scrap-yard for in-house use.

Not quite. It needs a fly catcher and some sort of spikes first.
