AMT Go-Kart Aftermarket Parts

Recommended Posts

Now that the go-kart is readily available it would be nice the have some aftermarket parts for this great little kit.  I don't have the expertise or CAD software to design the parts but more than willing to help with research and recommendations.  Any one interested?

I would make sure you're not stepping on any ones toes when it comes to copy rights and such. Otherwise I buy one or two carts.

David, I'm hoping to create new parts to upgrade the AMT go-kart kit.

Post a picture of the one on Saturday to show people what can be done with it with some mods.

You could start with the Exhaust pipes opened up, possibly get some better Pedals, Magnesium wheels, more realistic chain drives.

The Go Kart depicted in the F-100 Kit is a Record Holder . Owning the over 200 MPH at Bonneville Two way timed average . I remember the splash this addition to a mundane kit made in the day . I owned the Hot Rod Magazine featuring this Cart in the day . Is this Fusie Watch Chain on the Drives ?   Wow , eyecandy !    Thanx ..

There are also some 3D printed cart parts ...... Not sure if they can be adapted to this kit. I would be in on some stuff as well

There was a go kart at GSL that was built with a 3D printed Briggs & Stratton engine. I believe the builder designed and printed it himself.

Regarding this kit, does anyone make a decal set for the engine, or maybe even a set of decals for the record-setting Bonneville Go-Kart that RMR sells?
