The Old Kart Plans use BOTH mm (millimeters) and cm (centimeters). You
should be able to tell the difference between them. All I can say is - use
some common sense when figuring out the measurements. It also helps to get
some chalk and draw out the kart on the ground.

As for pipe bending - yes heating the piping before bending is MUCH better
than cutting notches out of it. The problem is - that most people dont
have access to blowtorches etc. to heat the piping enough.

BEst of Luck,
