So the Gore Kart begins.
I want to list some goals before diving in further.
1. Suspension sag and spring rates that allow some control over weight transfer.
2. Front and rear suspension without a jackshaft.
3. Composite Leaf Springs
4. Lower investment bodywork
The area I have available to ride is rough, and untamed. The landscape is beautiful and hilly, to be specific its the Driftless area of Wisconsin. Not only is the land nice but the roads that criss cross the area are second to none.
So the Gore Kart needs to cope with some light trials work while also traversing the tarmac, and subsequently I need some more roll, but would prefer it not get too complicated. I also notice without front brakes on the kart weight transfer needs help, so I put the axle on a long arm.
Here is where things currently stand.
