Wow gets a bit feisty in here sometimes.
I am building my kart but have paused over the winter. It’s coming along, it runs and thankfully it stops on demand too. Next stage is skinning the body. I have made a start and hope to have it all done by late spring.
Once it’s done I will be actively seeking contenders.

Hi Rhys
It's uncanny how many of the people that have the most to offer also have the thinnest skin. Dude (yes, I said "Dude"winking smiley you've got great skills, knowledge, and energy so drop the f-----g negativity and make some s--t happen! Also give me your damn address so I can send your book back.

Yes I have a thin skin! Don't worry about the book, I bought another. Consider it a gift for the loan of the wheels.

A fantastic meeting today at Wes' workshop. For those who wondered, his Darracq works VERY well. Really impressive. Very light, and his Motor with a wet clutch and no TAV actually surprised me TBH. I was very impressed and he is such a neat guy.

We have a way forward.Can I please request that those outside the greater UK refrain from adding to this thread, as many of the comments haven't been helpful. UK, the fuse has been lit, or the snowball is rolling...

Glad it went well Rhys, looking forward to getting involved. A lot of the French karts use the same engine setup as Wes, simpler than the TAV, and they seem to perform well. My steel arrived today, so as soon as I can I'll make a start on the chassis.

Been thinking about the next one too, an Austin 7 Ulster, all timber build, with the same engine as Wes used seems favourite.
