Default road rocket

because this is a first time go kart i thought id just start simple 4 wheels 1 engine 1 gear (forward) no suspension an just the frame and everything in between (clutch ,brakes etc.) Well i was searching the web and i stumbled across an american website http://gokartsusa.com/azusa3557gokart.aspx well the go kart is the road rocket. And its just what i am thinking of building its simple but effective. The only problem is there s no real info on it a little bit but not enough, so if any one out there reads this and has this kart the plans or even something similar please could u send them to me?

Where are you based?

Building a frame will be cheaper by far, but will take time and if you're welding is not up to scratch it probably won't be as good as the bought one.

Woooo, another aussie!

There's a bike postie bike auction on the 17th, and there are 4 damaged ones which should go fairly cheap. Here's the link:

http://www.pickles.com.au/damaged/li...TION&x=34&y=20

Perfect gokart engine. Centrifugal clutch, 4 speed gearbox, 7.5hp stock.

I'm in Killara, 2071, Sydney.

Have you checked out The Edge Products? If not heres thier website. They have a forum too, whch is here ( hey Beelzeboss hahaha, betcha can't gues who I am :P). Thier prices are pretty expensive(shipping is cheap though) but its all hand made and is the best of quality, they are probably the friendliest business I have ever dealt with. Shipping from America just isnt worth it for us aussies, you'l pay more in shipping that you will for the kart its self.

Buggy and ATVer? Hehehehe.

Max, you're welcome to come and check out my buggy once it's finished. I'm happy to help out a bit if you decide to go ahead and build a kart.
