Hi Marvin,

Thanks for the photo. If you have any more photos, it would be great if 
you could email them on. I can then add them to the kartbuilding gallery 
at: http://kartbuilding.net/gallery/v/OtherPeoplesKarts/
so other people and get ideas.

I had someone recently enquiring about the drive connection on this wooden 
go-kart. See: http://lists.kartbuilding.net/2010-July/000880.html
It might give you some extra information.

I had a 3.5HP briggs and stratton lawnmower engine on the wooden go-kart I 
made. I got 25mph with it. That was quite fast for the wooden kart with 
the front steering setup.

If you have any questions, just drop us an email.

Best of luck,

Hi Marvin,

Thanks for your email. I'm interested to hear you are building one of the
karts on kartbuilding.net Which kart are you building?

A 4.0hp engine should get a light kart up to 30 mph.
Again, you might be able to go faster and get more acceleration using a
gearbox, however this is a very complicated setup.

Let me know if you have any more questions.

Best of luck,
