#MidOhio2018 Grain Shovel Hellride
« on: Jul 12, 2017, 19:38:04 »
My 2018 Mid-Ohio swap experience can't do without an (im)proper pit vehicle, so I picked up a ragged out kart frame to work as a base. The plan is to shoe horn a '73 XL175 motor in it, then see if I can survive the weekend.

What else would you use in Middle Ohio?  Nothing but corn.

Need to mount that motor to your right, not behind you.

This isn't that kind of frame.  If you look at the front axle of the those karts, the right side axle is longer than the left.  Then entire drivetrain is shifted to one side.

We mix it up with soy beans too though...
