Hi John,

Im glad to hear your progressing onto making a metal based gokart. Once 
you get started, you will find it easier to cut and weld metal together, 
making a very strong and sturdy kart.
The first thing you want to look at is the type of chassis you want to 
make. There are a few sets of kart plans on the www.kartbuilding.net 
website which are mainly using metal chassis. Typically the three are:


Another good read would be the following email which discusses chassis 
design: http://lists.kartbuilding.net/2008-May/000556.html

Once you are decided on the type of chassis, you want to spend a good deal 
of time making the chassis. This will give you time as well to figure out 
the wheels and engine etc. Looking through the http://kartbuilding.net 
website will be very useful for you.

If you have any specific questions, just let me know.

Best regards,

Hello, hows it going, as you might remember me because you helped me last 
summer make a wooden go kart, vertical
shaft. This summer�I Have decided to make another one with some 
advancements, so I thought�I�should contact
you.�It will have metal structure.
�I need you to guide me through the neccessary materials for it and some 
suggestion of how to build it. Also,
please send me some go kart plans, but�not too complicated.Reply.Thank 
you. John.
