    As long as i run a stock motor and a Transaxle still it is considered stock. I think i will do very well as it is very low and goes like a bat out of hell. I am a Member of LMFAO, Lawn Mower Fanatics Alberta Organization. We race around 10-12 races a year around Alberta and Saskachewan Canada. If i go to a solid go kart rear axle it then is considered in the mod class. Then i can put a horizontal motor in. Check out our facebook page in the link in the description above.

    Be cheap! Last year i started with a free 1978 Gilson with a 11hp Briggs and 5 speed Peerless. Got it running and put a 6″ pulley up front and a 2.5″ pully in the rear. Removed the govener and that was it to start. It topped out at 60 KPH “37MPH”. Then from there i watched alot of youtube videos and raced alot with friends. Learned alot from there. Look up Feerless Front on here. He is a wealth of knoweledge aswell.

    Well i don’t have the belt slipping. i have tested it out and it hooked up good. I did just weld the diff solid tonight thou. I am waiting for new shift keys and brake shoes to come in. Then i will get it back together and really test it out. I do have a 1″ bigger rear pully aswell. It all depends on the track really. 1st and 2nd gear was useless of course but 3rd hauled ass! i havent got to really open er up yet. but yeah for sure if i need to slow er down and make er haul better it’s easy!

    It looks good and should be a lot of fun. I would gear it to go a little slower, you will get more accelleration :) You may have trouble with the belt slipping on that little 2.5″ pulley. I can hardly wait for this summer.
