One of the key notes you need to scratch down on the idea pad RIGHT NOW is the ability to get fresh air to the radiator. You're going to have to remote mount it or build a nice set of functional scoops to keep that big motor from getting hot under the carts bodywork.

I have a couple aluminium electric fans i plan in useing. Yes heat IS a big concern which raises a the question of how to insulate the heat comeing off the motor so I don't burn my a$$ sitting in it. I also do want to get it street legal. I figure I will have to get it registered like these guys with dune buggies. As far as lowering it... I need it low as possible for stability but I still want it functional. (speed bumps, driveways, ect will be an issue.) The option I see with that is building a four link and putting air bags on the end. but I don't want to get extravigant with the suspension. you mentioned useing the rear end out of a quad? will it be wide enough? I think that's a good idea as far as durability. help with that would be greatly appreciated.

keep it classy. . .black with an "eggshell" clear and gold leaf lettering!!!



A 4 link with bags would be a good way to go but I have no idea what you would would have to fabricate for a bearing carrier/axle assembly and chain drive. . .I wonder what those guys did on the video posted above?

a modern atv rear end will typically have a nice disc brake attached to the axle, he's gonna need to mount some disc up front as well! might want to fab a mount for a steering damper as well. . .setting that front end down after a nice high speed wheelie is gonna get real sketchy if the wheels aren't straight.

Check out the following link, http://www.buggiesgonewild.com/, it will have everythign you need to know and even some of the one off parts required to make the conversion.

Does the current cart you have run an electric motor or gasoline? They sell an adapter that bolts tot he motor input on the electric car's rear end you can bolt a sprocket to.

I built one back in the day with a CR500 motor, it was fast, wicked fast. Hard part was jerry riggin a shifter that wouldn't flop out of gear. That thing would pull wheelies like crazy, and a 1st,2nd, and 3rd gear power band wheelie would make your pucker.

I'm putting together another death machine as we speak. I am taking an old mini dwarf racing cart modeled after an earlie 40's model truck and gonna cram either a 600cc motorcycle motor in it, or a 750cc two stroke triple out of a jet ski.

I put a post together here when I get a little more done on it.

Both of these pics are from a golf cart, highly modified at that. It just depends how far you want to take it, and how deep are your pockets.

Imagine this little car, with a 1,000CC motor..

I figured out what to use for the rear end. I'm going with one out of a trike. several reasons. A:no modifications needed for chain drive. B: disk brake already on it. C: fully independent rear suspension. D: has a limitied slip differential on it. E: I already know for a fact that it can handle the power.

Im excited to see this start coming together.
