Need Advice from Go Kart Vets

My wife knows I'm a bit nuts when I get started. I'm interested in building an off road cart for my kids but have been distracted by so much info. Saw a nice frame plan,(for Free) and was looking to see if anyone has used a 2-stroke motor, clutch and trans from small displacement dirt bike for a cart. I'm a scavanger, (and my wife adds a "Cheap Type") and wanted to establish my kids interest, my ability and the benefits of other folks hard work and homework.
I guess some remember their first attempts, some happy and some not.
Appreciate any help.

Talking good ideas

you've got some good ideas there man. another thing, what kind of frame setup are u starting with? is it a regular g-kart frame or is it different? i have thought of doing this once to my g-kart but decided against it. i was goin to lift the frame off of the axle about 3-4 inches to fit bigger tires and a smaller sprocket for mo-par(more power) and faster speed. but then i also like the g-kart setup of low to the ground for full-speed turns. but if that is what u want then definetly stick with it. i think i 4-cycle would work better and have more power than a 2-cycle, of course with a 4-cycle one would lose the awesome sound of a 2-cycle. i'm not sure a tranny would be needed for this also. maybe u'r setup is different from mine but if u have a tranny then most likely that means u have selectable gears. which would be possible but a royal pain to hook up. if i could get a pic that would also help alot. [email protected] is my e-mail address if u want to e-mail it to me. of u have a pic on the computer. anyways keep me posted on ur' ideas and a pic if u could.
