2009 Home made off-road it will be a SS (Insane go-kart)
Last updated Jul 22, 2010
Well my Brother in law and I got the idea of an off-road go kart but with his sled engine. The engine is an Arctic Cat 900 bored .030 over, rocket clutch, reworked carbs new jets and some other little goodies that are in the engine. My bro in law says that it could be pushing around 160 horse if not more. Well some of it is together now, the front end of the sled is mounted on the frame (having an issue with connecting the steering together chances are we'll use the steering system out of a lawn mower or something. The front has a 50" wheel base and the rear is going to have a 60". The frame itself is going to be widened by 12"-16" inches (6-8 on either side) Then comes the mounting of that engine, which is still in the works right now.
Not sure of what this 900 can do but from talking to my brother in law it is one snotty girl. He had told me that there is absolutely no place to ride that sled around here due to the way its built, and its built for drags. When I get some numbers after its done I'll put 'em up so you can see 'em.
The entire vehicle is the modification. Almost being built from scratch, almost not completely.
