COPB,

I am not familiar with a Gem Car. And I have looked all thru my cheat sheets. What can you tell me about the differential. Is it similiar to a golf car diff.

All I know is that it is front wheel drive. There is one for sale here at $3500. Not a bad price. It is just like new. You would think that a builder would use a motor mount that is readily available.

COPB, My P/C Crashed after my last post. But I did talk to the guys at H/P.
At one time Gem Car & H/P were trying to research & develope an adapp a kit. R&D can get expensive. It is a project that got pushed to the back burner.

Up date.

We have been working on this kart night & day for the last 3 months. We couldn’t start until the motor came in.
Our newest AC Drag Kart has one more stop to make. Powder Coaters. Install batteries & off to Drag Strip

Hoping to have it at the Bonanza.

I will post pic's soon.

You Guys don’t laugh because it has been GarageBuilt.
We would like to thank Rod as in Hot Rod for all his Help on the chaise. But my wife is pissed about all the holes in the back yard from all the coffee cans that I had to dig up just to pay for it. We really don’t care how fast this thing is, It is a lot to look at & was a blast to build.

Here are just a few pic;s of what Rod & Grono have seen. These are just of the mock up. Even Rod hasent seen his 4-link

Ok, so I forgot how to post pic's. Can I do it of my PC pic's?

The carts wheelbase is from end to end of the stock frame & is still 2 feet short per the width or the rear tires. A easy fix but not enough time for the Bonanza.

ACEGOLFCARTGUY,

The set of tires & front rims are for a JR Dragster. The backset of rims are a set of 4 on 4 bolt circle rims that we had made in to a set of bead locks.
