    That is (was) mine. We went through a chassis re-design on it. I'll see if I can dig up some pics.

    Here's a shot of the "revised" chassis, along with a link to a video with some more action . . .

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-dxsXq5SkQ

    If you watch some of the cars in the video, the blue Camaro was mine (now my brothers).

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but the "Kart" was dismantled. Just too dangerous . . .

    Lots of "Kustom" pieces to put that thing together, and lots of scrounged parts.

    Master cylinder is from a 90's something Chrysler van, steering box from a '40 Ford, and the motor, trans, and differential are from a '70 Skylark (mine).

    That is (was) so Frakn cool!. I built a kart using a honda 250cc engine and a split dif rear axle from a brastool racer. had all 5 gears electric start and disk brakes. It would run about 70 mph.After 2 months of beating on it and upsetting the neighbors the rearend shattered and I took it apart to wait for another inspired moment. BING, the light just went on. Now I know how I will put the stock 430 and TH400 trans to good use after I put in the new 500+HP 430 into the car.

    My grandpa used to say something along the lines of "There isn't a car made that keystones don't look good on." When I was a kid, I remember he had a set on his truck and on my grandma's Caprice.
