I found these while cleaning up my old 'puter. There is also a set using an Ultimate GT body too, that are even wilder. But this sure makes the Go-kart body look neat.

Rick,

What was the overlay made from?

It really looks good!

The JK Go-Kart is a fun thing to have. Plop it on a flexi chassis and you have instant open wheeled racing!

The top body is a scale body like an LMP cut around the GoCart body. I cannot find the pics of the Ultimate GT bodies used for one of these, but they make the cart really look radical.

We didn't even know what a TI22 was when this was built. :laugh2: It's a Jerry body probably from his GTP/LMP series around 2002/3?

Okay, now this is getting to the point where it's sounding very interesting.

Perhaps we need to put together a class where we run these as a side race at perhaps the R4?

You have better have your act together for that Mr. Rick!

These must be what, about 1/10 scale? Looks like fun.

That body is on a Champion Turbo chassis. I think they are kool, but if I find the ones like this with the ultimate GT bodies on the outside, they are just wild looking. I bet Frank already has one painted at Rt. 93?

Before JK came out with these, we used 1/10 RC10 Drivers, they fit a Flexi perfect.
