So you are looking for a gokart plan.
The question is, “Just what are you looking for?”
Are you looking for a cool homemade go kart?
One that has good handling, looks fantastic, has a Ferrari like feel when being ridden, even has a crisp exhaust note?
I am guessing you are also looking for plans that are easy to follow. You want a frame that is easily fabricated, and parts that are readily found.
The Go Kart Guru Has Over 30 Years of Go Kart Experience....
I can tell you having been into go karts for over 30 years now that go karts are simple machines, but require some thought to be a successful package.
I understand that the go kart you are looking for is probably not going to the racetrack, and that is perfectly alright. You are probably looking for a go kart that you can make, but one that you will be proud of for years to come.
That too has been my goal when designing and building radical go karts. I wanted something that was not outrageously expensive, but was easily attainable to the average Joe.
So the GoKartGuru.com was developed to help you attain that goal. The goal of a low cost, but high quality, head turning, Porche like handling go kart, that your friends would be dying to come over and see.
Go Kart Plans and Some Tips on What to Look For....
First, let me give you some tips on what you might find out in the go kart plan world.
Typically what you will find in plans packages may not fit the bill. For example the go kart may be a go kart, but may look fairly bland, boxy. It might be a go kart, but not one you would really brag to friends about.
Secondly, then there are the performance issues. The go kart may have 4 wheels and even a decent drive system, the steering is all wrong, because once the system has been put together the go kart has some adverse side effects, such as severe understeer, where the go kart just goes straight in hard cornering. The reason for this is that the center of gravity has not been accounted for and as a result there is not enough weight over the front wheels.
Finally, you may have a limited budget. As a result you have few options for engines and drive line layouts. You have a vertical engine that you got off of a riding lawnmower, for example, but you have no clue as to how to get it to work on the go kart that you just built.
These and other issues pop up after you have built this go kart, making you very disgruntled over the whole project.
Well before you jump in and start making a go kart, you should take a look at what we have to offer here at the GoKartGuru.com.
