I have already spoken to Lonnie, he is supposed to get a stripped down quote (all the stuff I can't use taken off) I am just waiting for that to come throughWell DF will sell you a raw steel frame, I bought one. Do your modifications before the finish work, seems like a better plan.
And both you guys, cut it out, clean up your posts. No need to get mean, we are all hear to learn, so no need to get nasty.
Seriously, edit your posts.
I loved my go kart, it had a 50 hp v twin, it was a large frame off road go kart, but I really longed to be able to drive something fun on the road legally. Side note, I had to keep gearing it to keep the top speed lower than 60mph.Nothing new gets done with out vision. Dreams. Wild dreams. Classy seems like a visionary kind of guy.
It's not like any of us have put a V8 in a Goblin. Although, I did think about it.
I see the Goblin more of a light weight car. My son, Ian, wanted to build a shifter kart.

But I wanted something street legal. The Goblin was the compromise that we made, a light weight performance car, that is street legal.
Not quite as fast as the shifter kart, but can be driven without trailering it to a track.
A V8 would be a compromise the other direction, more weight than a normal Goblin, with a bigger frame.
