    Well one day I was sitting in my government class in high school, and I was so bored. I really needed something to look forward to after school. Since football was over I thought I would build a go kart. Then I found this site and it turned out to be a mini buggy I guess. *The next day I went up to the farm, grabbed some chalk and started making my plans on the floor. I did this with a straight edge, a square, and a tape measure. *My idea is putting 400ex suspention and drive with a 600 gsxr motor.

    I agree. *You have run on sentences, no punctuation and bad spelling............... ......sorry man. *Good luck with the buggy. *Whatever you do, learn the difference between "allot" (usually spelled incorrectly as alot) and "a lot" or K-fab will have your a$$!

    ok well i do need some help. i need a rack and pinion. i was thinking of using a sprocket with a hub and put that at the end of the stearing shaft then weld some chain onto a pipe and have that pipe slide inside of anouther pipe with my tie rod ends off of that but it still would travle the same. my next thought was to take a stearing quickner and flip it so it would be 2:1 instead of 1:2. idk i just need to find a desart cart rack for cheap, if you guys have any kind of rack i could use let me know please. Next thing i need is a gas tank, if you guys no about any cheap,clean looking gas tanks let me know.
