Try using a 160cc mower engine and put a pulley and v belt instead of sprocket and chain because it makes your go kart run better, smoother and faster. Or if not use a 125cc mower engine but make sure the crank shaft is still moving and not ciesed up.

I agree with what you guys are sayin. I know a few sites, but they cost a bit. Im 16 and buildin one as a GCSE project. As soon as the examiner has marked it, im rippin it to pieces and im gonna use a honda 90cc motor. Im makin it out of steel tubin and im just usin shit i found round school. So all you kids out there read this... You don't have to spend much. Everything apart from the motor was free. The motor was 18 quid and i only had to spend an hour makin it work. The whole thing goes 45mph now, so dont go over the top with the size of your motor. I seriosuly recomend you speak to your tech teacher, even if you don't do tech, just so he/she can give you sum ideas. I built it all by myself, learnin as I went, and it has been so much fun. So all you bastards who say get a job and buy one are losers. Its the makin thats the fun bit. and i aint a loser. Im a locally sponsored skater, i have a girlfriend of 1 year a 4 months and i am currently an A* student who still goes out at the weekends with his mates and gets drunk. So screw you, coz it is well worth the build, especially if you can get a GCSE out of it.
