7-11-18 Made slight progress on kart got a lot of engineer work out of the way for a few things we want to do. Made rough blue prints for a second frame shape also. We will now have two main frame shapes that will be allowed in the "Rat Kart" class.
One frame which is what we are building on now is called the "Model A", It's a skinny frame with a little less width and can be ran open wheel or with side rails etc to help enclose wheels. This frame will look well with cages/Body shapes like sprint cars or old Hot rods.
The second frame we are calling square body.The wheel base and width will follow the same rule set. However the frame at the mid section will be wider and the nose and rear can also be built out wider. This will be ideal for truck looking cage's/bodies more stock car looking or anything else we come up with on this frame.
We also made strides on the planning of our own system to have 1-4 speed's on the karts and also have the engines mounted in the front.
Next planned steps are the steering and then the drive train. After that the rest won't take much.
