Looks like a nice build. Arin and Rifter know their stuff, if it were me I would definitely listen to them. Good luck.

I definitely appreciate all of your input, and will look into making some changes to that. I will be the first to admit that I have no idea what I am doing, but you never learn unless you ask and an try it.

The axle is 1-1/4", how would you recommend adding more bearings in without having the housing for them interfere with the sprocket and discs? I drew up a quick picture, would something like this work where the red is what i need to add or do you have photos somewhere.

I think what you have for bearing would be fine. with the 1 1/4" shaft deflection won't be a problem. just make sure you have strong mount points for the rotor and the sprocket and you will be OK the axle side of that swing arm looked OK to me it's the pivot point that is the scary part. another question for you, are you looking to mount the engine on this swing arm as well or is this just for the suspension? what are the plans for the back of the frame? as it sits right now it looks as if the axle centerline will be right below the rear frame horn or turn down. if the plan is to lengthen the wheel base you are bound to have some interference issues.

I bent 2- 1 3/8 4130 chromoly axles before I realized that the torque from launching was what bent the axle, I would use the drawing you posted and mount the sprocket on one side and the disc brake rotor on the other that way you will have support on both sides of them. I have a CBR 1000RR engine in mine so it does have more power than you will have but I would build it strong anyway. I have build pictures posted here from the very start of most all my builds including the 1000RR, take a look, you might see something you would like to try.

Thank you guys for the input, I will get to work on making some changes and have pics and details by next week. As for today, my brother got his A arms welded together. They still need to be adjusted and dialed in but after we put the tires on this thing it is starting to look pretty bossy.

Will you get some 25" tires later on?

We plan on getting new tires in the future, but so far we've done this whole build for under $1000. As soon some funds get freed up we will be doing the more expensive upgrades. Do you know of any websites that sell tires and rims on a budget?

A arms are all adjusted and some changes were made, without shocks they can come up above the steering wheel smoothly with no problems. Gotta go to pick and pull next week and go shopping for shocks. Mind you we're doing this on a budget with the intention of upgrading later, but does anyone have any recommendations for a car that would have the kind of shocks that would allow a workable amount of travel but not too stiff for the lighter weight of a cart versus its donor?

I would say go the atv/motorcycle route. most small cars are going to have struts with big springs (diamter wise) and could make mounting a pain You might get lucky at the pick a part yard and find some cycles out there. I know the ones around me do.

got a question about the suspension setup. are you going to have the track width wider in the front than back? Looks a little odd. are you planning on running this on the Dunes or something?
