That 40cc chainsaw engine would drive a small kart, but you would only be 
talking about going 15-20mph max.
I definately would not buy that chainsaw just for making a kart. Fair 
enough if you can get a cheap second hand one. I dont think it would be 
worth the money to buy that chainsaw just for its 40cc engine for a kart.

This would be a better engine if you wanted to buy a new engine on amazon:

Best of luck,
