Here are about the only two pictures i took of the first Official Rat kart class prototype from early this year. We got it about 70% done and decided it was over built from the frame up. We cut it up for parts.
Version two main frame was built months ago and we are about to get back to it and get it done. The biggest slow down has been back and fourth during the build, I think we cut stretched cut made shorter a dozen times. Trying to find the ideal size and also the size ranges that will be allowed in this Strict class of karts.
Thread for Prototype 2 will be added soon,
The build changed a lot from this build. However this frame style is still one that will be built some. We have about three frame styles or build types we will use.
These pictures were early in the build. We had it very near complete. The 2x1 metal has mostly been replaced with 1 inch square tube and we shaved weight anywhere we could. These are being built to run the least motor we can and things still be fun. However they are pretty dam big.
