I have a question for big wave dave, on a nother post you said that you knew how to make the turning rad. so that the inside tire would be able to make a tighter turn then the outside. Is it posable to do that with a go kart, because I would like to do it.

Also, this is what I do in the summer, I went and mowed one lawn today and I have one tomarrow. This is a picture from last year.

Ok, went and got the panels today and I was hyped-up....it took alot of looking at the kart and my plans back & forth...but I think I got it.

I used 1x1 angle iron first to mount the front of the arm panels.

I then grabed one of my neodymium magnets to hold the panel in place so I could mark the second stand off.

The second set of stand-offs are 1/2x1/2 angle and all the stand offs are drilled and taped .

And this is it so far...sorry this picture is blured, dont know why...tomarrow the next two

Hey T-man, yeah that angle you are referring to is the Ackerman angle named after the man who came up with the idea for improving the steering of carriages. Prior to this breakthrough the front end of a carriage would have a tendency to slide the front wheels of the carriage through a turn because both the front wheels turned at the same angle or radius. With the simple adjustment of steering geometry you can have the outside wheel turn at a wide radius than the inside wheel dramatically increasing the turnability of the vehicle. Here is a link to better explanation of the theory http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ackermann_steering_geometry

Another humble suggestion. Summit Racing makes a Zues fitting or fastener like they use on racecars that have a quick release screw and a ready to weld mounting plate. The are super cheap and can make the panels easier to remove. I bought some for the Rumbler to more securely attach the body armor. The ones I bought require the mounting screws to be riveted onto the panel so the screws can't fall out and be lost.

One last observation I hope you don't mind. But before you drive that awesome beast with the panels on you might consider welding a one inch trim piece around the edge of the panels. This will help create more rigidity in the panels but more importantly prevent you from being guillotined by a panel in the event of a crash. All those panels with straight edges brings images of knives and make me want to cover my throat and close my eyes......Again thanks for all the pics they do make our day.....Dave

hay thanks dave ...I think I know how to implament that streering into the kart..and yes I think I am going to put some type of trim around the panels, not only for looks but for safty...these things are hard to put on, hold in place ...mark, hold in place...mark,.... stand back, WHAT!!! THERE NOT EVEN...do it over..rrrrrrrrrrr

I'll have at least 4 panels on by tuesday ....I'll post pics.

Thats it

..well.. guys ... the panels have been nothing but a hassle so I've decided to forget about the tumbler idea and I'm going with this.

...................just kidding........... thats a top panel to a lawn master riding  lawn mower. I do think it is kind of mean looking.

This is what I did today...I finish up the second set of panels and started working on the third set.

that third set is going to take me some time because I'm building a step under the top bend so people can step up over it and the top to get in.

I have decided that my deadline will be before Memorial weekend.....hopefully

BWD ...I couldn't find that quick release set up for the panels on summit's website so I ordered a catalog...I couldn't figure out where to look and what it would be under.

Hey T-man those part numbers are sum-g1620 and sum-g1624 on those fastners. In looking at your panels you may want to consider welding the panels together on th backside to create one large shell. That would give it a lot of strength and make it safer during a collision....Just an idea....Dave
