Hi Joshua,

I did use SolidWorks to help design the kart. With the recent advances in 
SolidWorks stress, weight and center of gravity analyses can now be 
carried out. I initially used SolidWorks 2003 to produce the racing kart 
plans. I have however nearly completed the off-road kart in SolidWorks 
2008. I hope to have the completed plans completely done with animations 
and stress analysis done in the next few months.

As far as SolidWorks goes, the base package will suffice for everything 
needed to design the kart. You can find out more details and see how-to 
movies on the solidworks website at:

Best of Luck,
