The Sexy Machine

Post by Neves » Sun Mar 24, 2019 3:48 am


This is my first real go kart build

I started off making a layout to scale out of cardboard (you can call it my cad :D ) and tack welded the tubing to fit the layout

Image Image Image Image

I made it a little stronger and I think better with a second level of tubing, this will support the rear axle and front spindles a lot better

Image Image

I ended up painting it 2 colors, red and black

When I build something, I get an idea in my head and start building from there.
I don't use any program to design it, I design it as I go along.

The kart looked a little plain when I painted it so I decided to add some graphics to it to bring it out a bit more.

This is the tilt steering, I just pull a pin out and I can tilt the steering wheel forward, the pin is held in place with a clip.

Image Image

Even after the graphics I thought I could still make it look better so I decided to add fenders to it.

Image Image

I still didn't think that was enough, so I tried looking for a rear spoiler for it, but the ones I liked were $150us and up and I didn't want to pay that much,
our dollar is 75 cents to $1us.
So I decided to make one.

And wouldn't you know it, the first time I wanted to go for a test ride, it started raining

You can watch the video's on the build in the video section.

Thanks David, It has a really good pic up off line and for a kart that size and that low to the ground it gets scary at full speed
