SR, No terrapins were harmed in the building of this box kart, however we did sacrifice an old go kart frame and two bicycles.
Autosport, what you see there is all the steel that will be used (with the exception of the steering). The rest of the kart, the flooring and bodywork will be wood.

Has there been an official box cart spec put up?
How much wood? metal? type of suspension?
Is the ramp confirmed?
My friends and i would like to take part and waiting until next Wednesday to find out that we are building the wrong type of cart will be tough.
Is there a contact number for more info?
Thanks in advance.

Hope when we pull the micrometer and test the % of wood in the build we doh get haul before the Privy Council. Mainly out of wood get lost somewhere along the way. The competitors will decide!

I am sure that the next event (assuming that there is one) there will be a more comprehensive set of rules regarding the construction of the karts. Might I suggest different classes for the steel frame versus the mainly wood karts.
Looking at Team Loco's photo, I can say that my frame has less steel than theirs.

just to be clear:

Ramp starts
16" external diameter is the limit for the wheel diameter (can this be extended to 20" for the over 12yrs class?)
Simple Braking System
No "pushing" support Team?
Helmet and other Safety Stuff?
Metal/Wood combination for build?

"BANzai Rastafarai sooo.. yuh comig as Race Director?

Just to be clear:

Ramp starts - Yes.

16" external diameter is the limit for the wheel diameter (can this be extended to 20" for the over 12yrs class?) NOOOOOO. Next thing yuh start to rob all them wheel-chair people.

Simple Braking System - Yes.

No "pushing" support Team? No pushing, no touting.

Helmet and other Safety Stuff? Right. Bicycle helmet good enough.

Metal/Wood combination for build? We started off by saying More wood than metal, we will let the other competitors vote and yuh know how "fair" motor racing" people can be!

Those who push their luck will get a nice shake hand, well done, you early for the nex event.
Doh want to stifle the imagination but repeat...we started off by saying "mainly wood"- and then them boys start to show off and go in their own direction.

If Yuh doh understand this, then we will get Nigie to give some more English and dictionary classes.

No posts here since Friday
Everybody busy building box kart.
Was in Ojars / Bike Inn in Tunapuna on Saturday and noticed a pile of used 10" and 16" wheels.
The guys there said that people taking them to build karts for the competition. lol.

I have four new 16" wheels with tires to get rid of. (the wheels that are on the kart in the pictures)
New wheels cost $145 each and tires cost $60 each.
Getting rid of this set for $200 and will throw in three tubes

45 degrees????

I should say so.
That is too steep, a ramp that is 8 feet long, at 45 degrees will have to be 8 feet tall at the back.
the impact of hitting the road at a 45 degree angle will be less than pleasant.

Here are a few photos of soapbox ramps.
