Hi Wilkin,

Yes, the books I mentioned are a little old.
Last year I bought the following book.

It still is in print. While its not as in-depth as the books I
originally mentioned this book does provide some good information on
making the kart as on the front cover of book.

I may have a few more pages of the book I had mentioned on the previous
web link. I'll send another email to you with this.

Best of Luck,
