Several friends and I are building a go kart with a tube chassis and a 125cc dirt bike engine in Auto Tech and during college in Ohio. While my expeditions perusing sites for ideas on frame geometry and random specs to help our cause have come up somewhat fruitless, I got to thinking.

"I wonder how many people do/have played around with go karts?..." (I mean that as a serious hobby, not just going to a funpark of some kind and racing theirs.)

So be it with a shifter, drag, or a regular suspension/suspensionless kart, feel free to leave tales of fun times, or bash me for being half retarded. It's your call.

ATVs and 4x4s, FTW. I wanted a go kart when I was younger, though.
