Hi Rokas,

That 350cc engine sounds good. If you want easier/simpler methods of 
making certain parts, see: http://kartbuilding.net/Freeplans/plans.htm

If you mix and match some of the details between the plans, I'm sure

Let us know how it goes and if you have any questions, just drop us an 

Best of luck,
