Title: Turning a hand build go cart frame into a run what you bring mower
Post by: Tazz914 on April 06, 2012, 02:00:56 PM
Hey folks, I need to build something in a class i have at school and i always wanted a supermod but couldnt afford to build one so i decided to build a run what ya bring mower. The rules say looks like a mower and have a mower engine. This build will be a slow build and will take any advice. Moderators and admin, if you down agree with this build then you may remove this tread. This frame was built last year( junior year in high school) and was made to run with hand truck wheels, a electric 900 watt motor, etc. Now it will be transfered to a 12hp bringgs run ya bring class.

After i started to get my game plan i decided to off a little bit of metal to allow me to sit like a walk-thru chassis. The original design for the cart was like a box chassis that i could sit inside of.

Made some more cuts on the front and decide to just sit my stuff up to the frame and see how it will look. I put my old wizard hood on it. Im planning on running 15x6x6 on 6x7.25 on the front and racing slicks on a 6x 10 rim. Im also gonna shortin my wheelbase by about 5''. Thanks for the views and advice. .Please let me know if i should continue or quit making a mess lol  :D
i actually got my pics to work. Thanks birdman express. and i will go ahead and say that the steering wheel is illegal and will be replace during or short after the build. Thanks
