    Default HELP!!!!

    My daughter tricked me into saying we'd build her a go-kart for next summer....

    So I will be asking a million and one questions from everyone here... because I have no idea where and how to start!

    LOL this is Rooster territory. Grab his old racer (as he's building a new one) Throttle limiter N Sta-bil stickers would be a cool cart!

    Lots of places to get pieces and I can help you find both sides...the good but not so expensive parts for a good fun cart, or the good racing stuff for a fast machine!

    Do a google or ebay search for Manco.
    If winning was easy, then the losers would be winners.
    I wish I was the man my dog thinks I am.

    Funny you mention American Sportworks I spoke with their Director of Engineering about STA-BIL in the past and got this endorsement from him:

    "STA-BIL® has been included with our line of recreational Fun Karts, ATV’s and UTV products for over 10 years. We recommend and encourage the use of STA-BIL® Fuel Stabilizer to all of our dealers and customers as a critical step in the successful long term storage and off-season maintenance of our vehicles.”

    Bryan King
    Director of Engineering
    American SportWorks
    I'm not sure I want to buy a new go-kart however. Want my daughter to do some work on whatever we get -- I think I'll look through Craigslist and see what's for sale around here and come back here once I know what needs to get fixed on whatever I get.
