the engine must be in front of the axle. i used a transmission out of a polaris atv it worked great and even had a reverse good luck mine was a 440 and it flys

That's a massive engin you've got there for a go kart. I'd say check out this page. Likwise I'm also building a "go cart" actualy it is more like a dune buggy. Check out this page you probably have already found it but it is the most usfull page I have found yet.

I would like to put a cuyuna 440 engine on a go-cart. What type of drive train would i need and sprocket ratio. so on. Any help would be appreciated and can be paid for.
