Well as skip finds go this was full of
win. Pretty much the front tyres were phooked though. Gave it a good

to go.

The arm's shaped like that cos its the wrong one !

It may have been done to aid the turn in though (or ackerman)

but I very much doubt it though.

Chris the tyres shouldn't be more than about 20psi.

I look forward to having a hoon in it though chris, get it up wild tracks with us one sunday and my ten yr old will show you how to drive it properly !!Ghetto Kart  - Homebrew Goodness Lol
