Ok I got to Go Kart a couple weeks. Now when I go to work on the build (which is a long way from being done) I have to start it up and drive it.

And drive it. And mess with the engine and drive it. Lol


Then my work time is over and I made no progress!!

Ha! The troubles I have.

And that's why you run out of gas.

I ran out of gas while go-carting on the farthest side of my neighborhood. Had many offers from neighbors to put gas in it from their lawn mower cans. Enjoy your carting!!!

I don’t see what the problem is. I see it as motivation to get that beast on the road. Have fun and keep moving forward.

Ha, sounds like my poor time management when I do construction around my house...I spend nearly just as much time staring and admiring it as I did actually doing it. Sometimes I even pull up a chair
