I am hopping to soon buy a go kart chassis and engine to race at my local race track. I am down to Intrepid, Top Kart, Tony Kart, and Arrow. I want to what a good 125cc shifter engine for these brands would be and a price range if possible. Also, I will be racing at Prarie City in CA. If any one has raced there and knows the rules and regulations of 125cc shifter karts I woyuld like to know that to.

My friends and I are going to build a go kart this summer and I am preparing a preliminary cost estimate. How much does it cost to build (i.e. cutting and welding) a frame together, and what would be a good material to build it out of (steel or chrome-moly)? There are some pre-built chassis around the internet, but they cost anywhere from $200 to $700. I am planning to use at least a 5hp engine and maybe a torque converter, so strength must be taken into account.
