Weedeater engine for go kart

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread

I have a 32cc Weedeater barracuda blower/vac engine and i want to build a go kart with it. Will it be enough to carry me around (165 lbs)or should i go with something like a motor skateboard or scooter. I would really want a kart if possibly but ill build what i can

You can put an engine that small on a cart. But it wont have much excelleration but itll get a little quicker once you get it goin. the reason i know this is that i put a weedeater motor on a little three wheel tricycle/bigwheel

Go with a five horse briggs, there are more parts to hook up a drivetrain and enough power to get you around. You can always use the weedeater on a go ped or something.
