WOW! that looks huge!  I especially love the rear view.    You and Conrad are totally leaving me in the dust with my "go cart" build, but thats where skill makes a difference, you guys have it, and i dont lol!   Maybe one day i'll catch up to you two.   And maybe we could all get together and have a photoshoot or something with our not-larger-than-life carts

Awesome work, cant wait to see more.

well hay I'll tell you what. when I get my kart and plans up to par I,ll send you a copy. but keep in mind that the plans and parts go hand and hand so look at spending at least $1000 for the rear, mid, arms,front/back tires, and some other stuff. I,'ll leave the paneling out for you to do.

To start you will need a hand grinder, files, steel chop saw that can cut angeles up to 45 deg., and yes a welder and an a potractor/tape measure.

So what do you think of the little trak machine up top???

i think its sweet!  With the skill you have shown me you have in building this go-cart, that track kart should be a breeze for you to build

Well your not going to believe this but this kart is only the second serious project that I've ever done with welding (second to my rack on my truck) hell I've never used a pipe notcher till the other day when I used the one I bought 2yrs ago to cut the square tubing to fit the circle tubing for the arms.. these pictures put things into better perspective.

T-man, I see you got a couple of big boys toys there! Hey, the tumbler is coming out great!! It doesn't look bad with a single rear tires. I was going to go with duel tires do to my short axle. I see the cold weather doesn't slow you down. Good job!!

Thanks Terry, I still have a lot to do with what you see there. I was going to try to go with 4 tires also but my problem was the room that I would be working with (motor)...What size of wheels are you going with rear/front??  And you know, Its been really strange but ever since I started this project (call it karma or the big guy up stairs is smiling on me or what) things have been working out. I plan on staying inside one day and the weather is crapy that day. I plan on going out and working on it and the weather is nice. I ordered my tires on the same day and the ones I wanted to work with first show up first. Strange

I'm a stay at home dad (we lost our daycare assistance) so I watch the little ones, cook, clean, and change icky diepers. When the misses comes home thats when I jump outside and do my thing and I do it as fast, precise and efficient as I can.

Are you going to use the same things that Shaggy is going to use on the rear for 4 tires?

Plus when I get to my paneling its going to look way differant then everyone elses I'm building more of a generic virsion of it.

Since my model is around 2/3rds the original size of the Tumbler, my tires wont be go-cart at all, but small truck tires if you will, 31" Super Swampers. 

T-man I'll try to lay over the panels in that picture first chance i get just to see how it will look  

In that one pick, looks like you kid is gonna bonk you over the head with that bat!  lol
