Hi James,

Is this the kart you have:

As for "its slipping and won't engage", you would have to be a little more 
descriptive. Is there an automatic or manual clutch? Does it have a manual 

It sounds like it could just be the clutch and it may be a little worn. 
Does the kart move at all? in any gear?

Depending on your skill level, you might be able to remove the clutch and 
see if the friction pads/shoes are worn and look for replacements. As for 
where to get replacements or spare parts, Im afraid I dont know. Your best 
bet is to go looking in google yourself.

You would have to find out a little more information about the 
transmission, specifically the clutch. Also - did you check to see if the 
gearbox or clutch require oil? Some clutches are "oil/wet" based and need 
a full bath of oil to prevent them from overheating.

Apologies I cant be of more help.

Best of Luck,
