V6 5 speed 140mph, you read correctly

planning on building a superkart based on a tony kart chassis using front and rear brakes plus doing pedal modifications so that brake & accelleration are right hand side of steering and clutch on left so i can use heel and toe and also for crazy kart drifting (i'm bonkers i am!) obviously the chassis would be strengthened to cope with the 70kilo enigne an 50 kilo driver planning on mountiong the radiator right at the front and extending the chassis so the radiator would be at an angle around 30 degrees and with chassis lengthening it wouls sit in front of the pedals gearshit system aready designed design pictures available on reguest (if you want them just say so and i'll post them)
all feed back good or bad welcome !
thanks guys
Chris

why not use a motorcyle engine, youll save a lot of weight, and if you use a 1300cc 4cyl youll still have 190+mph and it will probably handle better because of the weight savings
