Update for 2009.

Running the engine on the side has had no ill effects.  Still working out a few bugs in the gearing and some engine stuff.

2009 I will have front brakes on this.  It is WAY to fast and the rears just slide if I get on the brakes hard.  Needs fronts.

I will be putting on a steering wheel as USLMRA has outlawed the use of handle bars.  Not sure the route I'm going just yet.

Had a chance to run it across a scale at a Kart track last weekend.  Heavier that I thougth.............264#

Well, yes.   But there are modifications that need to be made to make it survive.

Sorry to resurrect an ancient thread, do you happen to have any pics of how you vented through the valve cover?

I donít have any pics.   All I did was drill a hole on the topside and welded on a hose barb.   

Super easy.
