If you can't bolt down that I/C 8 HP, another big block will produce the exact same issue. And since that one is modded, keep it!
Slow down, Budget Spunkmeister!
Now if you trade that Subie for another big block, and 8 HP Budget Go Kart would be EPIC!!

Is that a clone carb on there?

No clue it might be a 420 carb but it has no markings and doesn't look conventional it's not original but it Fitts the intake so we used it. My buddy who has been helping me out has cancer so I don't know when I am getting it back due to him being in and out of the ER but I'll make sure he signs it or something so he is remembered when he dies. The cancer is pressing on his heart so he has had many heart attacks. He told me he wanted someone he could share his knowledge with before he dies and for him helping me fix the yerfdog I'll help him build his many projects including a carter he plans on adding independent suspension and a skii doo engine on.

Its running driving and stopping kill switch works lights dont it needs the throttle adjusted so the carb slide goes all the way down other than that its "done". Hope everyone liked my build so far looking forward to see who wins this contest! I built this thing on a shoe string budget hence the name budget go kart
