I even changed my signature for this joyous occasion to get you more details on my car.

My first copilot is the missus, the second copilot/driver is my brother in law, Allen, which has helped me a lot getting to this point (those dark moments when you rather be watching HorsepowerTV)...thanks bro!

Yes I still have to work a bit on my idle tuning.
Yes I have an exhaust leak (headers were a bit loose).

After this run I put it in the garage and yanked the engine out, chasing a suspected rear main leak which turned out to be just an oil pan leak (rear)...oh well, I can mod my Lokar ebrake now with more room.

Enjoy!

Cool. The fastest gokart video I've ever seen! And, I admire a guy who casually says he yanked out the engine to check an oil leak.

Me too! What the heck do you tell a cop if you get pulled over doing this? Do you act surprised and say, " Oh crap, sorry the plate must have gone missing when the body blew off" :icon18:

Is that irritating whistling sound from the header leak, a bad alternator bearing, or a supercharger?

Hey guys thanks!

Steno, yes, gated community, cops come in sometimes, but sparingly.

AC Bill, yes, the whistling is the supercharger.

AZ Pete, trust me, it wasn't fun deciding to pull the engine, but I HATE LEAKS!!!
Even worse was finding out I could've fixed it by just changing the oil pan gasket grrrrrr.

Oh well, have to go back and muster more enthusiasm to put her back together.

Nice go kart. By the looks of your video you live in the same neighborhood as my sister in law. I'll be on the lookout for the Cobra next time I visit her. (Course I may be mistaken I don't know that area too well the neighborhood just looks the same, she's off NW 142nd Ave, near exit 9B on 75.

GL with the rest of the build!
