I made major progress on my go kart - February 24, 2010, 04:23 PM

I had surgery (penis reduction) last Friday and the doc told me to take a week off work so i have been home all week playing in my garage.

I built this go kart frame 5 years ago when i was in college and I put on the front suspension then just kinda forgot about it and did other projects. But this week i dusted it off, ordered some parts and made some major progress. I made the motor mount and attached it to the swing arm and put the axle flanges on and some other stuff. I have a long way to go but most of the large fabrication is done.

It has a recessed seat, ATV front suspension, 25" ATV tires on all corners, a 450cc motorcycle engine, 6 speeds, and a large rear sprocket for maximum dirt thrashing power.

Hopefully i can maintain my motivation.

interesting design, here are some observations.

1. Your front upper shock "hoop" needs more bracing (they will flex inward and torsionally rotate)
2. You may want a engine with reverse, if you do more than take it around the yard.
3. If thats a single spline rear axle (one keyway) it may be the weak link in your drive train
4. Nice use of banshee a-arms
5. Depending on it's intended usage, (if it's going to be abused) your main frame could use a bit of trangulaton

There is always a mechanical engineer in the crowd ready to jump the gun on giving design critiques.
If it's not painfully obvious there is a lot left to do including bracing. Just so you don't worry too much, the axle is a dual spline and the sprocket will have 2 hubs to distribute the load of horse power. Reverse is for bad drivers.

I think i will take care of the testing but i might bring it to "The Spot" once its done. Before some genius asks, I'll haul it up there in my truck.

Nice, make sure you give us an update when you plan on bringing it, the spot attendance will double
