Go Cart Winter Project

Hay fellas, My boys are itching to build there first motorized do hickey. We settled on a 2 person gocart. I could try to design my own but I am sure there are a ton of semi simple designs out there, does any one have any or have a site I can buy plans from?

Thanks!

Kids will learn a WHOLE lot more if they design it themselves. Doesn't matter how it looks or how well it works, it's the process of designing and building that's important. IMHO.

They have a basic design in mind, i was hoping to buy a plan, paper, or bend tech file, amd modify it from there in order to save time since we will only have a few hrs to work on it

Where will you run it? In your yard? Mountain trails? Dunes?

Age of the kids? Will they try to jump everything in site?
