Hi Rob,

Sorry for the slow reply to your email.
Yes - the racing kart on http://www.kartbuilding.net/racingkart/index.html 
was not originally modelled in SolidWorks. The 2D drawings were all that 
was done using SolidWorks. The racing kart was originally modelled in 
Inventor 5.3. I have uploaded the zip file of the Inventor version of this 
kart. You can download it from:
Unforunately although SolidWorks opens Inventor parts and assemblies, it 
doesnt import the various design/feature tree history. You can download an 
Inventor viewer at:

There is an excellent version of a racing kart chassis modelled in 
SolidWorks on my blog at:

I am also currently in the process of modelling the off-road kart ( 
http://www.kartbuilding.net/Freeplans/plans.htm ) complete in SolidWorks. 
It will be another few months before I get the time to complete the 
assembly and drawings however.

Best of Luck,
