Just wondering what the cheapest possible option would be if I wanted to build a go kart. I have a weed wacker motor, but I don't know if that's any good. I'm just assuming that building one is the cheapest way, if I could buy one for less, that would be great. Thanks for your time

I want to make a simple go-kart with a gasoline engine. I have a 3.5 HP Briggs & Stratton motor from an old power washer. We don't want a high speed racer, just a fun vehicle for goofing around. Least amount of $ out of pocket is a big priority. I am making this for my teenage grandson, so it must be adult-sized. I am a jack of all trades handyman, but DO NOT have access to welding equipment . This could be made out of 2X4s, plywood, metal pipe, whatever. I also need some advice on gearing or direct drive w/ some sort of clutch arrangement. I don't have any experience in this particular area, so any advice is greatly appreciated. Thnx.
Me and my friend are a Go Kart and we are getting stuck at certain bits in the process of making it. I was just wondering if anyone knew a website or link to a good set of diagrams and instructions on the frame, steering, motor mounting etc.
