    Default WTB go-cart

    Anybody in San Diego/ So Cal have an adult sized CHEAP go-cart they want to unload? I am talking one with a 5-7 hp engine, not a 250cc motorcycle engine.

    I have a 70,000 sf warehouse opening up soon, and it will be begging for some lunch time indoor carting shenanigans.

    shoot me a text with any leads

    thanks

    So can we set up up an indoor oval track with highly polished concrete? I miss those outdoor ovals from Malibu Grand Prix (at least the Northridge one decades ago).

    No hot leads on go-carts yet, so I am thinking of building one of these.

    No affiliation, but this seems like a good candidate.

    Wow, that looks cool. Expensive but cool. Send me the plans if you figure out how to make one yourself.

    Years ago GRM had a how-to make a go-cart from an old tractor which looked pretty cool.

    I like this idea and I think you should do it. Though on the pratical side the fun factor might wear pretty quick. Racing is fun. Solo laps not as much. You can probably find an old gen IR timer for cheap and lay out a config.

    A kart that's around 10 yrs old can probably be had for around $800. Roller maybe less. Find a seasoned 4 stoke like a LO206 and you're in business.

    Note that these can still get up to mortally hurt yourself speeds, especially with stationary objects like structural supports. Even tire barriers can break kart and driver, sometimes both. I'd be weary with guests and liability. A fleet kart might be the better option.
