Hi Steven,

Thanks very much for your email. Im glad you found the 
www.kartbuilding.net website helpful. I too had to get someone to weld the 
frame of my first kart - and it saved a lot of time. The chassis is the 
most important part of the kart to get right. Once you have a good chassis 
- everything can go onto this easily. All other parts can be easily added, 
changed, removed etc. but the chassis remains the same.

As for updating the site - I hope to put in a little more time in the new 
year to update and include extra details. I will put putting up plans and 
details for a simple wooden kart which can be made with only a drill, saw, 
hammer and nails etc.

If you do manage to get the photos of your kart onto the computer, I would 
love to see them. I can put them up on the kartbuilding website where 
other people might get some inspiration to start building karts 

Happy New Year,
