In the last week or so I made my non-structural extensions to my chassis in aluminium.

And I have made and tested my floor.

I have also been researching suspension systems and trail, and with the latter in mind, I am going to make the front axle to pivot adjustable, so that I can experiment with just how much distance between the turning pivot and the axle is best for holding the line.

Re: Bédélia - steering hub and suspension base

I have made the suspension base at the nose of the car. It is all still looking fairly agricultural, but I have yet to add any bodywork or anything aesthetic to the kart.

Looking like more progress Pete. From your previous work I bet it will be far from agricultural.
Is there any pitch to the suspension pillar or is the trail in the pivot at the bottom?
