Reviving a FORGOTTEN BIG BLOCK Race Go Kart!

We love racing go karts at CarsandCameras, especially racing karts that have been retired for the track, and are now yard karts. They're low to the ground, handle great, and can take a decent amount of power. We're working on Charles' big block Briggs and Stratton powered yard racing go kart in today's video! It needs TLC, it's not running right, the exhaust is restrictive, and more. Then, we have a John vs. Charles racing showdown around our Dust Bowl 500 racing oval.

Thanks for Watching!

    I recently seen something cool that maybe you like to do. There is people in my area who ride off road mud mowers up and down the roads they call them redneck atv's. recently one came by and asked me if i wanted to race. I checked out his mower and he was running a pipe with a muffler and about midway on the pipe he welded a flange to mount a small engine carb throttle body that he converted to act as a exhaust cut out valve and had a pipe running off that. He had a throttle lever and cable to open and close the butter fly. He said he can ride the mower quitly around the neighborhood but when he wants to race or go off road he opens the cut out "throttle body carb" and he gets more power. This is brilliant!

    OK I don't get it so how come you can just throw any pipe on there as an exhaust but when I was looking for exhaust for my BT200X they literally said if I try to put this exhaust on with the governor removed it'll blow it in two I don't understand motors at all or vehicles but what is why

He never asks for anything, and the one time he asks for something I can't get it for him. It makes me feel like a crappy dad. I'd also love to support the channel as I've been watching for years. Anyway, thanks for the killer content guys! It'll be fine!

Which, I might add, I am buying a small business there soon. If you have any referrals for rent homes with some land that will let me ride my own karts while I get this business up and running I would appreciate it! ... Little Washington is my favorite place in Beaufort Co and the 120-days I'll be there I hope to get to ride and maybe race ya'll!! ALL THE BEST! -RINK Kart #188
