Default not the average mini bike or go kart

well a buddy and i were jokin around one day and said lets drop a sled engine in a gokart or mini bike. and i got the mini bike frame but had no motor. so i scrapped the frame but yesterday picked up a sled motor out of an articcat. so i think im guna reserect the idea of a balls to the walls mini bike. i was told the motor puts out around 80 horse. so on a mini bike the thing should absolutly be insane. i can build the frame or if some one has a gokart frame they wana part with id go that route.

I have a go cart that I built up a few years ago from a Honda Odyssey Go-cart frame... Not sure what I am going to do with it (have been thinking of putting a bigger engine on it or scrapping the metal). I stripped it down after I bent the rear axle (Got a little too much air ). It is a one seater (narrow frame).

Not sure if I am ready to part with it yet or not, let me know if it sounds like the size you are looking for...

Here are few pic's of my son's mini rail. I installed an Arctic Cat 440 with electric start and screaming eagle pipes. Runs good but it is a touch loud. Going to see if we can quiet it down with out loosing performance. I have not let him take it out and hammer on it yet, we need to put a rack and pinion steering gear in it. Right now it's just too squirrelly for him. It will lift the front end and do some awsome hole shots though.

That motor doesn't need an expansion chamber. Kinda like a 2 cycle weed whacker, chainsaw, etc. The expansion chamber creates a sonic boom that cause backpressure to keep the fuel/air in the combustion chamber. On older 2 cycles the piston skirt was designed to keep the fuel/air in....
