Hi Mat,

The kart looks good. I hope its not too heavy however and that you'll be 
able to get some speed up with the 110cc engine - which looks nice. I have 
found angle iron to be a bit heavy, however I suppose this depends on the 
type and thickness of the angle iron. It does make it nice and easy for 
welding. Did you manage to remove all the electrics? Well done - if you did. There was 
a whole pile of electrics on that engine in some of the photos below. Also 
- do you need that battery for the engine? It could add a bit of weight to 
the kart. You can get small motorbike batteries (6v or 12v) which might be 
smaller and lighter than the one in the photo:

It will be interesting to see and follow this kart as you complete it. I 
hope it goes ok, and will check out the photos as they arrive.

Best of Luck,
