THAT IS AWESOME! Conrad you have no idea how much pure inspiration you just gave me. i mean honestly, to see that beast just sitting there, all professionally built, and VERY well thought out, it made me want to clock out and go home and build something!

I agree with Web Batty, definitely bring on the video! And i am REALLY loving your rear axle set up, and shifter apparatus. I'm gonna be looking into one of those axles most definitely. Chances are i'll build a set up very similar to what you have there. Absolutely Great job! I'm foaming at the mouth for more!!!!

Oh ya AWESOME ..VIDEO is a must, and a quad clutch pedal, that is a resourcefull idea.

oh ya ..on the belt, you might want to add a little more slack in it so there isn't much tention when it idles because the sides of the belt will start to fray where the clutch ( on the motor ) touches it ...also there should be a brass sleeve that is on the driver that the face of the belt sits on to keep it from rubbing on the shaft.

Im just letting you know the stuff I found out about when I got my first gokart .... I put the belt on to tight and when I would start it and run it for a while every thing would heat up and expand, well I would get off and the kart would start to move away from me so I would have to chase it down..

Congrats Conrad,

Can't wait to hear how the test drive goes.
I just read though the whole thread again and it IS inspirational. Seeing your larger build makes me feel like mine should be "easy"

BTW, for you and T-man.
I have the same "wood" chop saw with a cutoff disk that I use to cut all my parts too!
same saws-- small "bridging vehicles". Go figure!
I think its a sign from Bat God (no not that one) since your and T-man's small tumblers are looking so good (and/or are finished)- maybe mine will go well too....

BTW, when I just tried to look at the old videos it said they were removed by the user.

Apparently you don't know your own strength

Seems like the "small things" are the "hardest" sometimes.

So i'm back from the depot and have a universal pull starter replacement (i bought 2!). Now i'm about to replace it although it doesn't look like i have much room to do this with the motor mounted. we'll see.

this morning i did try to drive it for the first time. With my heart pumping a bit i opened up the garage door and waited for the motor to warm up. when i sat in and was ready i moved the shifter and sure enough (t man) the vehicle moved (jerked) about 5 inches and the engine shut down immediately. I tried again and the same thing happened..when i engage the shifter into drive from netural, the tranny locks, the wheels go and the vehicle jerks forward. the engine shut's down. What i remember is that these honda's have an Automatic Engine Shutt Off feature when the Low Oil sensor detects low oil. What i think (and hope) is happening is the motor gets jerked, oil shifts and the sensor kills the engine.  Plenty of go kart egine mod web sites talk about this problem when taking turns or hard braking/accelerating. I have instructions on how to disable it. so looks like i'll be doing this for the rest of today!

i'll be updating later...

strange. i remember taking my honda powered go cart, driving up our driveway, which was a hill, getting to the very top, letting off the gas, and flying down the hill in reverse, when i got to the bottom, turning HARD left, and sliding around forwards and taking off as fast as i could. The engine never shut down, and it was wired from factory.

The only thing that ever shut it down was when i took a turn too hard, and it ended up flipping over on me. Thank goodness for a roll cage. It smoked blue for a few days during start ups.
