I have a manco coyote xlt go-kart and the back wheels have locked in place. Is this a clutch problem? What should i do to fix it?

Does the back axel & wheels turn when the engine is reved-up? Did the cart sit for a long time without being used? Is the cart stored outside in the weather?

The torque converter, rear axel bearings or the brake caliper could be locked or rusted in place. My first guess would be that the brake is stuck or rusted. Check to make sure the brake pedal moves freely and that the cable between the pedal and caliper also moves inside it's outer sleeve. Then check to see if the brake caliper moves when you step on the brake.
