ETS Support Parts – Pit Kart


As a kid I always wanted a go kart, that never really happened and I went straight from motorcross to cars. So when the time came to build something to carry my wheels and tyres to the changer and set up a hot pit with my tools I thought what better time than to build a pit kart!


It started with a heap of stainless offcuts my friend dropped over, some 1″ tube, two 30mm wide cuts of 50mm RHS and some left over rod ends from the Hilux.


I cut the 25mm tube at 10 degrees on both ends to achieve some camber up front.


I have some pretty nice alloy kart wheels on their way too.

    Nice one dude. Are you using bearings or any kind of bushes on it?
