To tell you the turth, I'm more of a fan of the LSJ powered Atomred89si said:
I just thought it would be cool if there was a normal go-kart chassis, with a stacked engine in the back.toxiclows said:Come on man, you used the words " my welder " and " would it fit" in the same sentence. . . . .
heck yeah it will fit. . . .weld like you are nuts. . . . . make er work man. ..
actually what about just using the front end of he car. . i saw something simaler on Extreme 4xe at wyotech where they just had front clips that they made shortned axles for and were ruising hem around. . . i thnkl there was a Honda and a Toyota
To do that to a CRX should be a felonyTiersin said:Strip the car completly down, take off the doors, fenders, hood, interior, hatch. Cut off the top of the car. Your done :lol: . IMO it would be sick to drive something like that.
You know what would be even cooler?toxiclows said:you gus are really getting me thinking about htis kart thing now. . .. THANKS ALOT. . .. before you know it ill be cuting up the rex and tealingthe b18 to build a kart that i can rip up and down my street on.
Yeah , , the thought of a crx powered kart is awesome and i would love to se you go ahead with this project. . . ..
go for it. . . . and keep up posted. .
I would defintely rather use a motorcylce engine, but the only problem with that is cost and I'd have a hard time finding parts for it.bobski said:I'm pretty sure the gixxerKart people did a Honda powered 2 seater version. Honestly, I think using a motorcycle engine is going to make your life alot easier. Just the shifter alone would be a pain with a car-based setup... Unless you want to put the engine in front of the driver that is. Then there's the weight issue: A Honda car engine/transmission probably weighs more than your typical complete gokart. A rear-mounted setup with the torque of a car engine combined with car gear ratios would probably allow you to pull wheelies in 5th gear... Sounds cool, but suicidal in practice.
Not that I would ever THINK about doing this to my car...but This seems pretty cool.HackAbuse said:To do that to a CRX should be a felonyTiersin said:Strip the car completly down, take off the doors, fenders, hood, interior, hatch.
