Hi folks
I'm here to ask for some help. My son wants him and me to build a go-kart togother but I have searched over the internet but can't seem to find any plans to build a homemade go-kart. I don't want to build a motorized go-cart only one that goes down hill. I have a woodworking shop and a endless supply of wood to build one. If someone knows of a website or link please let me know.
Thanks Mark

Sounds like a fun father and son project! I can only tell you to refine your search, using different keywords. Search engines use keywords that are highlighted, when the results come up. Try different words/phrases: Kart, mini-bike, soap box.etc,etc. Best of luck to you, Tom

JokerWallace - hi, have you tried looking for plans for a Soap Box Derby racer? Those are wooden cars with no engines, designed to race downhill. These racers have wooden bodies on them so it may have more wood than you wanted, but it might be a good lead for you.

Many towns across the USA will be hosting their annual races throughout the summer, with the national finals being held in Akron, OH, in late summer. I hope this helps some - regards! Jim D/Heathsville, VA
