Well the drive set up of my kart was only 1/4 of the work. Try setting up the steering first. You should get a brigs 4 or 5 horse. and use a belt drive. Try putting a little rubber in between the engine and the frane. I used a chain on mine and it was hard to set up and likes to rattel loose my bolts if you know what I mean.

1 I use a 5 horse power honda engine with centrifigul clutch

2 Mine is bolted to the frame

3 I use a chain drive I geared it down alot because I use it in a three Acre space. So it has excellent acceleration

Any questions just ask
