I wan't to know how to build a lawn mower powered go cart

-- Ramon Michael (reflet@paradise.net.nz), July 29, 2002.

it is a bad idea to use a lawn mower engine beacause they are vertical and gocarts are horizontal engines.you can do it with gears and stuff but you have a big power loss and its not really worth it.

-- Ryan Brown (drunkyogi69@aol.com), September 14, 2002.

You can you it but you have to find gears and a chain to fit. However you have to turn the ngine on its side and its hard to mount.

-- colin (Kagemusha@mac.com), September 16, 2002.

You can easily do it by using a horizontal big gear from the motor and hooking it up with a vertical small gear on the back or front axle. Whichever you want to do. Just go to www.mxk.com and look for the free plans. Subsitute their engine with yours and the gears.You don't have a gas pedal or brakes this way cause lawnmowers run at a consant speed.

-- johnny williams (freakawill2000@yahoo.com), September 21, 2002.

its quite simple use an older mower with a horizontal shaft.

Can you build a Go-Cart with a Snowmobile Engine?

-- Me (luceferg101@hotmail.com), December 02, 2002.

I cant spell so bear with me, You can build a go-cart out of a snowmobile engine, use just use the primary and secondary clutches and make it a belt drive, you also might want the jack shaft of a donor sled, or at least the gearing off it. Problem is snowmobile motors love to over heat in the summer, unless your going to use a liquid cooled engine, but thats not practical, try to get a fan cooled motor, no bigger than a 440, and put cooler plugs in it, and if its oil injected, still put a little oil in the gas tank. I made one and it went so fast the front end lifted up and I flipped it. A nice 10 horse Snowblower motor with a centrifical clutch works fine also, as they are all horisontal shafts. Motors from motorcycles and such suck because of the clutch and grearing. I chainsaw engine can make on hell of a power scooter, and very easy to work with.

how and the heck can i put a lawn moyer engine on my home gocart.

-- jason elroy tyler green (www.foo@abar.com), January 01, 2003.

all you have to do is put the cilinoid upside down and turn it to the right 7/16 of a turn then reverse it. It will give it about 4 more ox power. then drill the hole in the oil pan so you can mount it. then use the pull rope as a pulley. I have made one and it runs awesome. Last year I climbed a 30 foot hill. When i caught second it flipped. I like to roast off the tires because it is so mean. I was racing my brother on his ninja and i smoked him.

Well YOU have to use a modified frame > and it will take some doing > But YOU Use a Riding mower rear end! The Vertical shaft has to be a Riding mow ebgine so that The twin pully system can be utilized> Then with Belt an Pullys between the motor an rea end , YOU put the rea end in top most gear, then set the controls to the right hand of Driver ,so Manual or electric start will do ! Then Dueal sprockest on either end shfts of rear end to duel small sprockets on Rear drive shaft ! Start motor an Shift to Highest gear will give YOU power galor! Using Motor cycle sprokets can give you Power as well as Speed . Just use your imagination >an Pocket book >But it Can be done !! Have a Great day >Cause inventors will allways find a WAY !!

OK, well then, on the subject of girls. They have cooties. Cooties are not good, in fact they are bad. Girls are also known to nag and leave guys over things such as go-karts, therefore, girls are not to be dealt with in any manner. Besides, after a while, a girl will vwant to shit out a little shit and keep it as a pet of sorts. To this I also say NO. Kids are god's way of telling you just how old you really are. They also smell, make an incredible amount of noise, and make you take care of them for at least 18 years, maybe more. After the kid comes, then the wife begins to let it go, and becomes overly huge, and wastes quite a bit of money eating, buying clothes, and getting make-up. NO NO NO. And after all of that, I think my point is that I deffinitly do NOT know how to build a fucking go-kart from a stupid lawn mower motor. The end.

It is possible to build a go cart with a lawn mower engine. It is a lot easier to build one with a horizontal shaft engine, but if you have a two cycle or two stroke lawn mower (which means you have to mix the gas) you can just tip it on it's side and use a chain, belt, or whatever you have in mind. I warn you, if the lawnmower is a four cycle (which means you DON'T have to mix the gas) you can NOT tip it on it's side. Meaning that you have to leave it upright and need a lot of tricky gearing to get it to work. Good Luck! Joey, age 13

Ya its so possible to make a go kart with a lawnmower engine heres a website http://www.csn.ul.ie/~steviewdr/index.htm just browse a will u will find it. Also a if u can get a Lawn Boy or any 2 stroke ( u have to mix oil and gas together) lawn mower they work way faster and plus u can just flip it on its side because it has no oil in the oil pan. If u guys have anymore questions e-mail me i can answer about any question about engines and shit. rock on c ya!

ive mangaed to build a go-kart with a victa lawn mower vertical shaft motor, and got it going 100km/h!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you bunch of losers, it is easy to mount the engine sideways, you just have to have a 2 stroke motor because 4 strokes have a oil sump and running your motor when its vertical will cause it to seize up. i might suggest that you bye a smaller brushcutter motor and build a motorized scooter, they are far more easy to build and alot more f

yours sincerely, sir. NIKTOMIELECTRICSCORPARATION!

by the way, steel is crunchy so i wouldn't advise trying to eat it!

(i said this because you think that lawn mower go-karts can't be done and they can, this proves that you are stupid enough to eat steel!)

First of all - to all of the people who felt the undeniable need to write something crude, there are other websites for people like you. For the two who claimed to have larger body parts than the rest of us - highly doubtful. If you have to claim it on a Q&A about go-karts, it's probably just wishful thinking and shows an incredible lack of intelligence. There are also other websites for you, and you may even find someone who will believe you. For the man who dogged women and children, you've obviously never had a child grab your hand and say "I love you, dad." My wife would never leave me over building a go-kart for my son. Maybe if you picked up women in places other than adult bookstores and the corner of Main and Center street . . .??? It was my idea to build this for my son, who by the way doesn't stink, and is not only highly intelligent but polite, courteous, and respects others. Maybe your other problem is "like father like son." Now back to the other serious repsonses, thank you to the guy from Monster Garage, and thank you to those who have supplied website addresses. It's nice to know that there actually are still decent human beings out there who own computers, and it's not just all the sleazeballs who have nothing better to do than lie about the size of their genitalia. (By the way - NO ONE CARES about the size of your genitalia!!!!! Talk about needing either a woman or a life! Or even McDonalds!) Have hope to the serious go-kart buildres, there are decent families and people who are just as interested as you are. To the low IQ crowd, we do have other interests and hobbies. If you need them, I can send you my childrens' Dr. Seuss' books so that you can have other interests too!

OK GUYS... Just one answer will be sufficient. Can you build a Go Kart with a lawn mower motor? YES or NO? If you can, how can/would one make the drive shaft horizontal from vertical? If someone can please get back to me at their earliest convenience, that would be much appreciate. Thank you! Pete (and yes I have a girl, who also is going to be helping with with this shit).... lol... Cheers!

-- Peter P (peettie@hotmail.com), March 16, 2003.

This isn't exactly and answer but more of a question. I have two push lawn mowers one 3.5HP and I'm not sure about the other but once i build my frame for the go cart will it be possible for the engin to run on its side as apposed to on the grond as a mower usually is? Also will i have to make any modifications to the engin for better speed?

The post above this on is SICK. Please go elsewhere to post those messages. Please stop this, as when this post started, it was actually quite good! Anyway, onto something else: Have any of you guys considered makin a gocart tank? I mean making a go cart from a lawnmower, then putting a chassis on it so it resmebles a tank! I did it with a mate a few years back, mind you! And it was great! They are also pretty cheap to build! Cheers, Lance.H

i must say that i really enjoy reading this forum but all you other people who write stupid sensless shit on here...please stop its not funny or smart and no one is impressed..With that said for all you people using a lawn mower motor i mus warn you that sometimes it may be a little hard to get staarted becaseu of the fly wheel on the crank shaft,,it is light weight aluminium appsoesd to heavu steel. I have made many in my time and ive had my experiences so feel free to ask any questions..thatnks

All of you immature little fucks that talk about the people on this post having no life don't have much of a life yourselves if you have time to post stupid shit like that all day. As for those that want to learn about things besides how somebody licks their fathers ass or balls or whatever I might be able to help. In response to the most popular question on this post "Can I put a lawnmower engine (vertical shaft) on it's side to make a go-kart," the answer is no!!!. NO! NO! NO! The piston will not get the proper lubrication and cause it to sieze. (not be able to move anymore) You CAN use a lawnmower engine though if you find a gearbox to make your vertical shaft a horizontal shaft. It's quite easy, but any small engine shop will be able to explain to you how to do this. You can use a 28 c.c. engine, but it wouldn't go very fast. I'm using a weed eater engine for my son's go- kart. It is a commercial duty one, but it's 4 h.p. and it has a high rpm and he's only 6 so it'll haul ass with him on it. It's a vertical shaft, but it's a 2 stroke so I'm able to turn it on it's side. I had to modify the shaft because it was only 1" long. I have it running now though and it'll smoke 'em. I'm building myself a 7.5 h.p. kart and I think I'll get some good speed. It's a horizontal shaft, which I reccommend if you can get one. Vertical shaft lawnmower engines are cheap though so alot of people use them. there's no problem with that. As far as the frame goes, you kind of have to customize one for yourself. If you're taller then it'll have to be longer if you want to be comfortable while driving it. With the added length you get added weight, which reduces your speed. Your design is also determined by your engine type and size. If you have a horizontal shaft and have 1 wheel drive system then you just mount a plate for your engine next to the drive wheel and line up your sprockets. If you're running a live axle (both rear tires push the cart) then it's best to centet the engine and sprocket for the axle. You can also run a jack shaft. There are many different ways to build a frame. Go to a place that sells karts and check out their frame designs and try to copy them. You don't need all of the fancy bent bars, or even a roll cage. ( I suggest a rollcage if you have more then 4 h.p. though, and a seatbelt. It's always more fun to walk away from a wreck then have to ride off in an ambulance.) If I can be of any help to any of you that are serious about building a kart then just e-mail me.

For those of you trying to use a lawn mower engine, two 45 degree beveled gears should be sufficient, although I would recomend building them into a gear box only so that dirt can't get in. Also, does anyone know of a stiff frame design? This summer I'm going to try and build a go-cart from scratch. I am currently in the process of rebuilding an old 5 hp Briggs and Stratton engine. Any ideas on how to boost the horse power to about 7 or 8? I don't really feel compelled to buy a larger engine, partly because I got the engine for nothing. I'd appreciate any input. Thanks.

-- marijn (mazaroony10@hotmail.com), March 28, 2003.

In response to making a 11hp go cart go faster, even after you have decreased the size of the pulley on the axle. If the cart doesn't have any trouble getting from a stand still to moving you can make the size of the pulley of the engine bigger. Ideally, you would want the pulley on the axle as small as you can, and the pulley on the clutch or whatever system you have as big as you can without hindering the carts starting ability.

Hope it helps.

Now, i've got a question. What would you do to make a snowmobile enigine fit for summer running? Is there a way to prevent overheating in a free air or fan cooled engine while in warmer temps...hope to hear from someone.

-- bob (cammyj_6@hotmail.com), March 30, 2003.


You need to change the jets on the carb to + 10 or whatever temp you run it at.

its very easy to make a gocart out of a verticle shaft motor(shaft goes up and down) you just need to put a big pully on the shaft and run that to a smaller pully on the difreatial for more speed then at each end oh the axel you can put on sprockets and run the chain back to a axel powering the tiers this will alow you to mount shocks think about a quad runner

I built a go kart with a bombardier 440cc engine i built it for the street i made a frame that looks like a dodge viper then purchased 10 inch racing lo pro volk wheels with some cheap wheels i got for free from my uncles tire shop i welded the frame custom and the engine was so easy to mount and put on. i painted the car red. then i took off the old rusted exhuast fabricated my own exhuast pipe with stainless steel and put a obx turbo muffler for a car on it. i got ngk spark plugs and wires for it then i built a air scoop on the roof and ran a tube down to the intake. i think this is one of the fastest go karts out there. its only 7.5 feet long 4 feet wide and 4 feet high its 535 pounds with me in it. i finished it just the other day it took me like 4 weeks to build. i took the tachometer and mph guage from the old ski doo and put it in the dash i built. i put some speakers from my car that i took out with a tape deck. then i put in sound deadener. i took the car out on the back roads and the car topped out at 123 mph!!! the skidoo went 85mph. this is faster than most modified cars and this only costed me like 30$ for the weld rods.

One other thing, will those stupid people posting sick minded thing on this forum thing stop it because it is not cleaver or funny.

Thanks peace out

hey i am tryibng to rebuiold a cart that my granpa built when my mom was a kid and the frame is still good it just needs a little work. but my real problem is hooking up a motor, i have a snow plow motor but i need to no how to hook it up and hook up gas and brake pedals to it if you could help please email me soon thanks.

-- brandon (wetwillie16@hotmail.com), April 21, 2003.

it can be done by welding a platform for the vertical shaft to sit on with the shaft running thru a hole. You the need to attach a pully to the shaft. Under the motor platform mount a riding mower transmission attach a belt to the pullys and conect them. (changing pully size will adjust the top speed and pulling power. If you gutted a riding mower use the mowers rearend and axle weld these in place(get a older rider that runs a chain between the transission and rearend.)

Another good add on is mounting the belt clutch off the mower this will let the belt slip so u can idle.+ you can do some rip roaring burnouts. You will need to modify the shift lever on the transmision so you can reach it. When you install the clutch off the rider do not istall the rider brakes. Install a seperate set of brakes this will let you shift the kart like a car. You will need it install a clutch pedal best bet is to mount the clutch between the gas and brake in the middle as you will not really need to shift on the go unless your pulling a very rough or muddy area or pulling hills. My kart stays in 4th and works gr8t however I do shift it at times such as during racing or in snow or hill climbing.

This design took a wee bit of work to get right as it broke many times in building it. After you get it all lined up and setup correct it will give you little to no problem. Go with atleast 8hp with this setup I used a 8hp @ first reaching speeds of around 40mph on topend. I later upgraded to a 15hp it now will run 60+ mph but speeds this high make the kart very hard to handle the actual reason for the 15hp was pulling power the kart can now pull a 60%grade at 45 mph on rough and rocky trails with a rider weighing 220pounds

With me it has much more pulling power because i weigh much less. The riding mower also gives the option for electric start and lights.

I hope this helps anyone out. Oh yeah a lawnmower motor off a push mower is going to prob let you down because of the power loss thru the transmission. If you are going to use anything under a 8hp don't try to set this up as you might get 20mph out of a 5hp setup like this or with a 5hp tiller motor will push around 30-35 stock.

How or where do u get the jack shafts, and where can u get the trottle body or how eva..so u can use a pedal for the gas i am building a lawn mower up instead of a go kart i wanna make it likea freakin fast go kart....

building a go cart is alot of fun. i did it and i put effort into it. it takes patience and effort. you will gain alot in engineering thats fo shizza. being smart is 1 concept by itself. i have a go cart frame for sale and an engine for sale too. i did not build the frame but i attached the engine to it.frame: solid metal steel with pedal and seat may need a little work on it like maybe 1 hour great project. motor: 5 hp brigg and stratton. less than 3 hours in use.engie has a throttle cable and ready to run just an easy fixer. comes with 4 tires and a sprocket attached to one of them. come check it out yall. E M A I L : LILGOLDENTHUG@YHOO.COM I LIVE IN LA I CAN SHIP THIS TOO. JUST EMAIL ME. ITS IN PRETTY GOOD CONDITION COMES WITH SPROCKER CLUTCH N EVERYTHIN LET ME NOW GOOD CONDITION.

-- aaaaaaaa aa aaaaa (ass@aol.com), May 01, 2003.

well, the fact is this. If you are trying to build a go-kart, give up with actually trying. Just put some things together and let it all go. If it blows up, then that's just where God wanted it to be. If he intended you to have a go-kart, he would give you one. If you fail horribly, then you probably should not have one anyway. and you would get to see something explode. that's alwayse cool.

And second of all people dont fucking build gokarts beacause they dont have real cars, they build them because it is fun and you can trash the shit out of them. You can go take ur gokart out off roading through all sorts of shit, id like to see you do that with the peice of shit cars you fuckers who pass there time on triing to moach smarter people then yoursleg.

O.K. instead of using a lawnmower use like a 5 hp snow blower or a snowmobile engine. With a lawn mower, they have verticle shafts, they have to be turned on their side, and then they loose oil and seize up, and then your S.O.L. so, do something like i am planning on doin, build it out of snow blower, a little 5 hp or a snowmobile.

I have a website if anyone wants to see it, it was built out of a KZ 650 street bike engine... www.nitrostreet.com/gocart.html

its pretty cool, that is what i am planning on making mine look like.

P.S. For all the people that post sick messages on this forum, just think of all the little 10 and 13 year olds that see all this stuff, you people should be ashamed of yourselves, i only pray God himself dont send you to hell.

I have a very light gokart frame that has a possitive traction rear end.I also have a 5 horse power Briggs & Stratton motor.The motor is not mounted on to the frame yet but I have been cleaning and fixing the motor up to tip top condition.I cleaned the carborator, filters, gas tank,the motors exterior and I cleaned the magneedles.I changed the spark plug and the oil.I have a long exuast header pipe type deal that is very long and starts out small at the block and gets wider toward the tip of the pipe.I have the stock inflaitable tires on it.The tires are still good no dry rotting indications any where and the treads are still thick.Can anyone tell me how to get more power from the engine before I mount it down and can anyone tell me how fast it will run and if it would be good enough to race at local dirt round tracks?I weigh 170-180 ibs.The frame is really light but it isnt a yard frame its a racing frame.Well thank you for your time.

i recently built an off road gokart. i used an old quad that i had and i found a kawasaki 250 2 cycle enginethat runs good. i weldid a squar frame then i used the front suspention from the quad and put it on the front of the frame i weldid i also used the steering and the tires off the quad and i bent some pipes to form shock towers on each side. for the back i used the swing arm that i weldid to the frame and mounted themotor and then atached the chain to the sproket the engine all ready had gears so that was all good. i used a pony ceg for a gas tank and i mounted it on the roll bar that i made. since i finished it i never got it stuck it does really good off road. it goes about 65 mph. i think that lawn mower engines are not good motors cuz they dont have as much power use a dirt bike engine it already has gear so ya peace out.

-- john age 17 (chevymahem454@aol.com), May 14, 2003.

I am new to engines and such, but i am interested in building a go kart of of my lawn mower engine. From what i know it is about 5 horsepower and it has a vertical shaft. It has a throttle on it ("slow", "fast", and "choke"). I also was wanting to know if there is any way i can make the go kart stay in nuetral - engine running, but i dont accelerate until i put the gas on. again i am new to this so any info or help would be greatly appreciated. byw the engine is 4 stroke i think - all i do is put in gas in one place and oil in some other. please email me. peace

Hey personaly I would save all the trouble and go buy a engine that is for karts.It is a hole bunch of trouble to put a verticle shaft motor on a kart but it can be done and its a pain in the woowoo to do. The easiest way is to take the verticle shaft motor off the mower and all the pulleys and the rear end ,you put the rear end on the kart and then u make a bracket for the pulleys and then mount the motor.Send me mail and i will go into great detail in how to do this and i have alot of pictures to help and PS; i have a 2 kart motors that i need to get rid off thankz

-- mopo (moo@hotmail.com), May 27, 2003.

to all the people with the question of how to get the virtical shaft o a lawn mower to go to the axle it can be done a few difernt ways. one way is to go trash hunting for a while and hope someone is geting rid of an old riding mower the back axle will work perfectly. and for those of you who dont have the good luck to find such a prize the way that old farm tractors worked was to seperate the engine form the rear axle by about 3-4 feat( in this case you would need to put the engein in front or of to a side) this lenth of a chain could be twisted the 45 degree angle and to add speed put a small chain weel to loosen or tighten the chain to increas or decrees speed

If you dont undersand what i meen than just give me an email and id be glad to help

i have an old Wisconsin motor thats much bigger than the 6hp thats on my gokart now, but it has a shaft on one side and an old pull starter that you have to wrap the cord around each time, with a pulley right next to it for a belt, on the other side. Any intelligent anwswers on how to make it work. Right now its single wheel drive, but I want to make a straight axle. If you have a stupid answer, eat shit. Like to the kid looking up gokarts during class, real nice! You'll be flippin burgers! You'll be real popular riding to school your junior an senior year on a gokart.

Thanx Spencer Cameron Keep on rockin and keep on riding!! AC/DC RULESSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

-- Spencer Cameron (holypooonastick@hotmail.com), June 09, 2003.


One thing you can do is just take a riding lawnmower and remove the mower deck, remove the rear end assembly out from underneath the lawnmower. take the big pulley of the top of the transmission and replace it with a smaller one, your choice which size, the smaller the faster. place the rearend back under neath and you are ready to go. example on how fast you will go, the big pulley you took off, if you got one half that size, lets say your lawnmower is a 7 speed 7 gear being the fastest.well now 1st gear is as fast as 7th gear was before so you can imagine what 7th gear is like. Have fun! and wear a helmet.

thanks, seth

For all of those people who need plans and such for building a go- cart out of a lawnmower should go to http://www.mxk.com/1ykplans/index.htm . This site has some excellent diagrams and instructions for building go-carts. For all of those people who feel that they have to write shit should leave this forum and should be banned (if possible). Good luck to all people who are in the process of building go-carts. I am going to build one this summer and I hope it will be a pleasant experience for me. GO CARTS RULE YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA. GO CARTS RULE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

okay first get a real engine like a motorcycle engine. Do not waste your money on a mower engine. Oh ya if it is a mower engine you want make sure it is not a briggs and straton. they are peices of shit. the reason you should use a motor cycle engine is because the clutch is stronger and it has a tranny so you will not blow your engine. It WILL SAVE YOU MONEY.

-- (mbuggs@charter.net), June 28, 2003.

I you want some examples of different peoples go carts just go to Ebay and check some out..a bad ass go cart might even be one with two large cc chainsaw motors ,as they do put out high rpms..a go cart that would haul serious ass would have a YZ CR KX 125 or 250 cc motor you can cut the bottom of the motorcycle frame and weld it into a sliding cradle to adjust the chain .I have done this and it's pretty easy and they go very fast and seem to be way more dependable than briggs or tecumseh although you can get those going fast also..

Hey, You can mount a lawnmower engine (vert shaft) horizontally, but it has to be 2 stroke, otherwise it seizes. Also A note to people who are posting on stuff not relating to lawnmower engine go carts.

1. The reason we are all posting stuff about lawnmower go carts is because this is a place to post answers in reply to the original answer.

2. Maybe a couple reasons why anyone would want to build a go kart, - too young to get a real car - old enough, and already have a real car - lawn mower engines are cheaper than a dirtbike engine - it's more fun than just buying a pre-built one and can be totally customised

3. If you do have bigger genitals than us, then good for you, you should have no trouble "getting some" as you put it, and we don't really care anyway, this is a post for lawn mower go carts

4. If you think this post is soo gay, then leave it, you must've typed in some pretty weird stuff into a search engine if you think lawn mower carts are gay and you stubled across this post, "Lawn mower carts are gay, and trail bikes are better, and i also want to know how to put a lawn mower engine on a go kart, and i'm looking for a post, blah blah blah"

Note: Thats the way i do searches

I had a toro riding mower.It had a 12 horse briggs and stratton and all I did was change the axle pulley to a 1:1 ratio with the motor pulley. At full throttle in 5th gear dumped the clutch and the thing stood up in the air while spinning both tires and needless to say I wrecked it...through a stone wall....and hit an oak tree...Anyway. That thing was crazy powerful and I have a 14 horse briggs waiting for me at home. All I did was swap that pulley, get a smaller belt, and beef up the clutch with a bigger spring. It's not a go cart but it's a screaming ass riding mower!!

it's not a good idea to put a lawn mower motor on a scooter it would be better to use a weedeater motor a lawn mower motor would weigh to much and it would be extreemly hard to control I know this sounds stupid but if it's very big it'll be to much power (wow was that me that just said that) anyways I'm sure you could find info on building one with a weedeater motor just look around on the internet

-- Isaac Faber (isaac1988faber@hotmail.com), July 17, 2003.

Im not really sure that any of you have even used a welder let alone took an engine apart. the guy above is right it would actually be too much power and the thing about putting a vertical engine in a horozontal postion would sieze the engine becaule the oil sump would not function properly.

Let me just say what the hell is wrong with people having a hobbie in making go-carts? The ones who come on here and say some nasty sh*t are obveously the idiots because 1. If the did have a life they would be at another post checkin out their hobbies and 2. The only thing they can find to do to use up theri free time is come to another post and trash on people who do have a hobbie. And I'd also like to say that I am a girl and I would never leave a guy because of a go-cart. I think go-carts and hot and guys who have hobbies and know how to make things like that are even hotter. And you losers who make bad posts can just go on and fight back but all us good PRODUCTIVE people know that we will grow us with nice jobs and families while you guys are on the streets begging for money and sex. And no one wants that sh*t. And to the guy who said all those terrible things about women and children... Sorry that you can't get a girl hunnie. I know your in denile. And the only time that kids are smelly and noisy and all those things you said is whena a girl reproduces with a punk ass bitch like you. So we're glad you don't want a girl or to have kids. It makes the world a better place. And lastly, as a girl I'd just like to say that WE DON'T CARE HOW BIG U SAY YOUR D*CK IS. We don't believe you and furthermore we are looking for more than just a d*ck. If you think that letting us know that you have a big d*ck is gonna make us want you, ( which we know that you don't have a big one) well then I guess that explains why your tryin to use that line... YOU DON'T HAVE A GIRL AND YOU NOT GONNA GET ONE EVER. Sorry. So to all the guys out there who do have a hobbie and who arn't as*holes, I feel you and I think thats totally hott. Keep it up baby.

-- Yo Mamma (wtf@wtf.com), August 07, 2003.

I'm back people. I finally got a go-cart frame and stuff like for free. It's pretty sweet. I have a Tecumseh engine waiting to be put on the thing. Going to put some disc breaks on the thing too. The go- cart frame has some springs in the front. Just need to get some new tires for the rear and i'm all set. It already has a transmission so it has a range of speeds, reverse, forwards, etc. So, if you guys have any sites pertaining to go-carts or have go-cart pics, email me with them. It would be very great of you if you did. P.S FOR ALL YOU FUCKERS THAT KEEP WRITING SHIT IN HERE ABOUT THEIR DICKS AND SHIT ARE FUCKING STUPID AND SHOULD DIE. Thanks, have a nice day.

-- Brandon (pdogg@hehe.com), September 06, 2003.

1. How do so many lossers find this site, you all must be searching for some way out stuff, gay go cart instructions? 2. Perhaps you all need a hobbie to occupy your minds, give you something to do rather than insult others and show us all how stupid the other half really is 3. Why build a go cart from a lawn mower engine? Why not? A nice little project for my son and me. Perhaps his parents doing stuff with him like this will stop him turning into one of you degenerate types. 4. Mounting a vertical shaft mower engine if it is a 4 stroke will NOT work. A Four strooke requires a constant oil feed and without some major (expensive) modifications will not work. However I see no reason for not mounting it as intended and running the drive through a set of bevel gears and a centrifugal clutch (except for the power loss). If any one has tryed this I would appreciate some imput and also any frame / design tips would be cool also.

Hey u who wrote this above mine, u think ur so smart about the clutch and the oil feed, well get this right, u ain't as smart with engines as i am!!!!!!!!!!!!! And we go kart lovers are one heck of a lot better than ur sorry butt. So shut up, i like go carts. Bitch

-- jon (jon_ike@yahoo.com), September 16, 2003.

u lame asses if u want to build a go cart use an old edger motor or an old horizontal lawnmower. it simple all the gears are interchangeable with the modern 3/4 shafts. i know because ive built three of them. you are all pretty stupid because i built my first one when i was 12

-- big country (illinsu13lime@aol.com), October 04, 2003.

I dont know about yall and these lawnmower engines but i have used a tiller motor and it mounts perfectly on the go cart with no problems and it was not a live axel go cart, i used to ride it on the road and it would go fast as fuck id say just guessing about 50 or 60 maybe faster, sometimes it would scare me.

-- john jacob (embeddeddreamcast@hotmail.com), November 10, 2003.

yeah you can easily build a go-cart or a mini bike with a roto tiller engine or even a snow blower engine. if you want to use a snow mobile engine it is a little more complicated because of the size and shape and where you need to mount it, if you have an old snow mobile and want to use the engine for a gocart it is actually easier to put wheels on the snow mobile and make it into a cool little go-cart. if you want to see a pic of a snow mobile turned into a go cart just ask.

how heavey is your go cart aproximately? if you tell me that and the wheel diameter and the HP i can give you a gear ratio needed, top speed, and Acceleration, by the way what top speed are you aiming for that'll make calculations easier. post them on the forum and i'll get to you on the froum as quickly as possible do NOT E-mail me.
