Hi Kavitha,

I suggest you carefully follow the wooden go-kart plans using a lawn mower 
engine as on the kartbuilding.net website at:

Are the kids looking to do a metal or wooden go-kart?
If you change the chassis design and go for a metal chassis a lot of 
things will change.

I don't have time to help your students build a kart.
You will have to use the plans on the kartbuilding.net website and help 
the students yourself.
If you have any specific question, feel free to email me and I'll see if I 
can answer your query.

Best of luck,
