So after some thought, the kart will once again be undergoing some changes... the original goal of the kart was to be something I could ride with my kids, then ride with them as they learn to drive. So single seat isnt an option. It also turned out really fast, so not good for small kids on their own.

Solution: I've cut up the roll cage... again.. and reworked it on one side to allow more room for two riders. I also moved the steering and pedals to one side. Pretty much my original plan.. ugh.

It's still tight for two adults but it's much more room!! Just gotta finish up the welding and remake the tie rods and it will be back in action!

The roll cage is also not symmetrical anymore, so hopefully i didnt make it look ugly..

I took one look at the kart this morning and decided the asymmetrical roll cage looked really bad haha.. so I modified the passenger side rail to match the driver. Much better!!

C'mon you guys gotta tell me when something looks dumb, you're my trusted gokart advice council :)

Bansil, the eldest kid is over the moon excited to ride it! And I'm almost as excited as he is!
