How much would it cost for me to build this? its so cool
hay thanks..well the cost for me to do this was $1855 ...The motor came off of a different go kart (no cost there) I just bought a raque n pinion so that was $100 . But keep in mind that I live up here in Montana where everything is shipped in off of trucks so everything is more expensive then the rest of the US.
Oh sure...the plans come with a list of parts and the venders on ebay so you know what to get and who to go too.
I would like to get your plans but I was wondering if you could send me some info on the parts that you used?
about how long did it take you to build?
Well it took me about 5 months to do it because I was waiting to get money for this or that.. I was all by my self doing it.
I totaly want to do this, but if I get stuck on something how would I figure it out? would I just email you?
Sure, you could do that, I have bought plans from other sources before and they were too complicated so I made sure that mine were going to be easier to understand and do. Plus the plans are one out of three sources of info that you use. The other two, my build log that shows you how and what I did from beginning to the present (building it from the ground up), the other source is my youtube videos. There's going to be a fourth source also (once I get it up to par) this website tmanskarts.com , I decided to have multiple sources because it helps people get a better understanding and more info on what to do and what to expect.
There are a few areas that might be a little difficult but for the most part this kart is relatively easy to build , it just LOOKS complicated …and that's good because people will be amazed at your work. Beleave me I know.

For the T-kart (tumbler) The T-kart plans were offered for all most two years, in that time only 57 plans were sold. So the decision was made to pull them off the market and pursue other avenues, a product that doesn’t sell isn’t worth holding on to. December 2010 was the last month.
For the A-kart
Total cost to build was $612.00 and that includes all the shipping that was paid for all the parts.
Unfolded the kart takes up 22.5 square feet of floor space. When folded it takes up 10.
You dont have to build it to fold up, the design will still work.
How much steel did you use
I think I used 45 feet of 1x1 with .095 wall thickness, about 2 feet of 2inch circle tubing that is 1/8th thick, 2 feet of 1 3/4" circle tubing that is 1/8th thick, and 2 feet of 1 1/4 x 1 1/4 square tubing that is .095 wall thickness . I think that it ..... oh ya, some 3/4 tubing for the handle bars ( cant remember its thickness )
