Hi Guys,
Here are some photos of Brian's rolling chassis. Note the difference between our front axles and how it relates to ground clearance and ride height. I really like his frame which is narrower than mine. Photos with body installed coming soon.

Do you have some overall dimensions of the frame? I've checked out your photobucket pics but the numbers are hard to read.

Dennis,

Those two chassis look so nice.
Why is Brians so much narrower than yours?

Also do I see a third front axle sitting there....one more kart just for fun?

Hi David
Brian is building the body to fit him like a glove. He can just squeeze in. I can just get into the body also and I have to say it is pretty cool. On the other hand, my cart is designed for everyone in my family to be able to drive it so I had to make it wide enough for a few big butts.
The axle you see laying on the frame (version 2) is going on my kart. It is much improved over the axle currently install on the frame. The 1st version was 1 1/2" thin wall (.062) tube cut and welded to create the shape. Version 2 is 1 5/8" medium wall (.095) and is mandrel bent to the desired angle. It is a 1 piece axle and it is bullet proof. The spindles are tig welded in place. Here is a photo of Brian's axle which is finished but has a different angle than mine.

Thanks Dennis. I see it is just a matter of personality, and what you want to put into the cart. I would like my cart to fit in the back of my pick-up when it is done. The measurements from your cart will give me a good base for mine.

Hey Brian, where are those RED leaf springs from? Do you have a source/website for them? or did you just paint something off-the-shelf.

pls advise,

cw

Hi David, Brian has been working on the steering shaft and linkage on his kart while I have been pondering the color I want to paint my kart. I am done with the primer and sanding and ready to paint. I was having trouble landing on a color combination so I used a photo of my kart to create a line drawing that I could color. Check out the attached photo. I used colored pencils and markers on white bond copier paper. I am going with the blue one on the bottom.

Dennis

I also attached a couple photos of Brians linkage

Dennis,

Nice collection of colour combinations. They all look very good and understand your decision process.
I like the white kart with the red wheels.
