We had a bunch of comments saying that we mounted our front suspension to the chassis of our cross kart wrong, which would result in stress on the mounting points, and eventual failure. In this video, we clear up the issue, and explain what we did and how our setup won't have the problems that some commenters thought it would. We also mount the front shocks (although they're too soft, so we have to redo them), the rear shocks and suspension mounts (using more Miata parts), and mount the steering rack and tie rods. We almost have a roller!

Thanks for Watching!

Screw clearing the air. Just get a bottle and take a shot every time some internet engineer makes a dumb comment bitching about your choice of parts or suspension design.

i am not a suspension guy or nothin but did you mention why you couldn't use the miata front suspension too? I thought they were real real drives so i was just curious.

well im 15 years old and ive welded more than enough to roll them dimes thx to my welding instructor but anyways idk what the hack they are saying that the welder is acting its either wire speed....most likely and or the shielding gas is being blown away but most likely since you can hear it sputtering it could be the wire speed/it is the wire speed

Does anyone what website I could get some good go kart wheels for off-road go kart (15x6)

That particular chassis book is fucking trash; it's several decades out of date, and had bad info in it even when it was published new. I have it on my shelf and its terrible compared to anything written by Carroll Smith or Forbes Aird.

FWIW I think you've done a cracking job personally & it looks cool as hell, designing a perfect front end set up is boring, tedious & massively time consuming so to basically wing it with the help of your book is a great achievement in my book - Frankenkart is nearly done :-)

Maybe when the neighbors captured Leroy and made some Kentucky fried Chicken out of him

Check your ground but not at the clamp but inside the cabinet I've seen another YouTuber run into that and what it was was the connection sort of came a little loose it could be something totally different but that's what solved that kind of a problem with another YouTuber

I just heard a gunshot in the background , aren't they houses just too close to each other to be discharging a firearm in the woods? Don't get me wrong I'm very pro gun I just believe in safe operation of firearms

1971 Honda Trail 70 restomod build video! I bought this CT70 rolling chassis for cheap ($200), and I bought tons of new parts for it online including larger wheels and tires, a Zongshen 190cc 5 speed engine (similar but not identical to the Pitster Pro 190 and Daytona 190), new triple tree front forks, a front disc brake, and more. This Honda CT70 restomod build is wicked!

Thanks for Watching!
