  • Racing Chassis

    Lately I'd been looking at a wheel barrow go-cart. Darn thing just looks cool. Thought I'd give it a shot and build 1. Draw back is I want a bigger power plant than 2 Raptor go-cart engines. I wanna put a 4 cylinder motorcycle engine on it. Chassis needs to be strong. So I thought I'd look at some racing chassis'. Anyone got any actual full size car chassis favorites with lots of pictures? Show ya what I'm talking about.

    Can't help you on the frame - but I've been getting into Old Cushman Scooters, Golf carts, Trucksters, Mailsters....

    The engines that came with them were slow (but safe) compared to today's standards of fast and on edge. I have a 32hp Vertical Vanguard and it will do 60 (pulling front wheel up) Click image for larger version  Name:	IMG-3970-small.jpg Views:	0 Size:	142.9 KB ID:	6923 and have Drag Racers with no problems with 200mph scream like little girls. Electric start Preditor motors at Harbor Freight are the hottest thing, and then Honda is the step between the Preditor and Vanguards that people are doing. For single speed, Comet Clutches are the hot and inexpensive setup. I think you'd be better off adapting to go cart going that direction than the motorcycle engine route. As far as frame - and be looking for a good front engine cart with a blown motor on the cheap.

      I'll certainly give that a little more thought then. Thanks for the input.
