Frames, engines, etc

  1. 1. Frames, engines, etc. By Dante
  2. 2. <ul><li>OK guys. This is what going to happen. You and I have decided to build a Go-Kart. Its an expensive, awesome, and cautious process… but its freaking worth it. Now its gonna take some skill and manual dexterity to dissemble the blade and such from the engine I’ll need Zachary. Parts supply is where I need Jacob. And steven, you are key to this. This doesn’t mean you get to name and paint it. It just means your important and we will discuss portions later. Steven and I and hopefully zachary will supply financial support where as jacob, you need to get us some soda xD anyway, whichever one of you is reading this… You are </li></ul><ul><li>very important </li></ul>
  3. 3. Engine Frames <ul><li>I’m going to show you a few Go-Kart frames I found that will show you what we’re dealing with. Pay close attention as details are vital(important) </li></ul>
  4. 4. The Basic 4 wheel frame Steering system Engine and seat area
  5. 5. Look at the wheel and the positioning of everything (the seats, engine etc.) Look how the wheels are locked in place and a nut is used on the outside
  6. 6. This is a simpler model, it contains the basics, and we have to learn how to make this before we install the engine
  7. 8. <ul><li>lol I thought this was funny xD </li></ul><ul><li><----- </li></ul>
  8. 9. This sadly isn’t such a bad idea
  9. 10. <ul><li>You can clearly see this isn’t going to be finished in a week. It’s going to take a while and if you don’t want to do this you don’t have to but help is very much appreciated. </li></ul><ul><li>---------------------------------------------------------------- </li></ul><ul><li>The next half will show you my thoughts on the 3 wheel model. My original thought was to have the motorized wheel in the back like most sports and exotic cars do, but because jacob and steven thought that a four wheeler was an easier safer model, we went with that </li></ul>
  10. 11. You can see how not only it will be easier to cover, but it also looks cooler, and a lot easier to built accordingly than the 4 wheeler. It practically hides the motor instead of it sticking out.
  11. 12. A side view of the way its going rotate
  12. 13. This is how its going to rotate, the chain or V-belt will be attached to the motor and rotating axle. The thing is that the rotator on the engine is horizontal “–” and not verticle “|”
  13. 14. This is the Scorpion go kart frame A.K.A the inspiration for my thoughts on the 3 wheeler
  14. 15. <ul><li>Engines </li></ul>
  15. 16. I’m afraid engines aren’t cheap, but they’re as low as $50 for a below acceptable engine. that’s why moneys an issue, look for a cheap and relatively fast engine. The slower the cheaper, but the faster, the funner. For the engine alone, we’re talking $50-$120 :
  16. 17. <ul><li>As you can see, this is the first thing we have to fix. It’s actually as simple as unscrewing the blade. I don’t know why this didn’t come to me earlier but we can actually use the rotating rods attached to the wheels. So basically: 1. Remove the wheels and replace with thick rubber one </li></ul><ul><li>2. attach </li></ul><ul><li>A rotating Axel </li></ul><ul><li>and tada! </li></ul>As you can see the rotator is horizontal and will be difficult to attach the V belt to work with the vertical wheel
  17. 18. Lawn mower engine are kinda cheap, but harder to work with because of the rotators direction and location This rod rotates from left to right making the V belt attachment difficult. Plus its going a different direction from the wheels up to down or north to south
  18. 19. As you can see we need the engine to rotate in this direction and area for an easier attachment of the V belt
  19. 20. If the engine rotates from the side the V belt will attach easier which is why an engine meant for wheels is much much more convenient STAY ON THE LAST SLIDE AND LISTEN
  20. 21. Thank you <ul><li>Pictures by google </li></ul><ul><li>Everything else by dante </li></ul>
