Hi Rodger,

Im glad you found the kartbuilding website useful and impressive. There is 
loads more I would like to do with it, but alas Im short on time.

I was also impressed by your own vehicles on http://www.electricunicycle.com/ 
and they have a lot of potential. I hope you get on well if you choose to go 
producing them on a large scale. As for producing a 3D CAD model, eDrawings is 
only a viewer and you cannot model any parts in it. You need a program like 
soliworks. There is a student version of solidworks available for $99. It might 
be possible to model the "leviskate" for you either if you liked. If you had 
hand drawings and measurements it would take about 1/2 a day to model fully.

There are a few versions of 3D cad models of the racing kart I modelled. The 
individual parts are in .sldprt format at: 

Best of Luck,
