    I've got a mate called Cam but we all call him Wombat who took my old go kart frame buggy for a drive. Slide it into a tree root sideways. Bent the sprocket and snapped the brake rotor in two. I never fixed it and started building my current build.

    Don't let Wombat drive or triangulate your centre bit to the frame.

    Hahaha! Did your wedding go long into the night?

    we have a saying amongst my cousins, brother, and I, “One more time!”.
    Back story on that… Once upon a time we were all new to riding my cousins and I. We decided to have a “minibike and gokart day” and my youngest cousin had just learned to ride that very day. His mom called to him that it was time to go home and he yelled back, “One more time!” One more lap around my parents’ large front yard was all it took, the front tire rolled out from under him as he hit a nearly perfectly circular tree branch parallel and he dumped the bike, motor spun up, and down he went. All to say, if you’ve had a good days ride and no one got hurt, best to call it a day before someone does.

    That’s a classic example of “One more time”.
    Never say once more, last ride, final time. It makes you bleed.

    I'd imagine your front to rear weight distribution will be much better now. It should handle great.
