The Flatshifter has now been installed, the initial test run with the Kart raised above the ground went well. Gearing up without moving the foot from the throttle, and gear down using a throttle blipper, The gear change is smooth in both directions. We are hoping to get it out on the track soon and test it out, so until then I am going to grow a large set of nuts before we go flying round the track.

Briggs and Stratton Powered Homemade Prototype Buggy
A short video of my homemade 3hp Briggs & Stratton Buggy.
The buggy has an upside down car differential and a 3 speed gearbox. The primary drive is belt drive and this is used as a clutch. The final drive is chain drive from the gearbox to the differential. The steering system is a steering box from a mitsubishi colt and the steering rods have been modified to suit the buggy. It isn't very fast but can tow a car trailer or a boat trailer and it goes anywhere.
