Here is a pic of the back of the kart. You can see where we welded the tube and flat gussets in to strengthen the frame where they are known to crack on the bottom of the frame. We also welded a brake mount on to mount the caliper. None of the modifications are drastic or ruin the look or function of the kart they improved the handling and strength of the frame. The back of the kart is the only place any welding was done the front has not been altered. Let me know if you want any other information and I can send you a pm.

Thanks
John
