Have the right tools. Can’t stress this enough. This means having a good quality set of tools to work with. Some of the things I bought and really appreciated were spline sockets to prevent bolts and nuts from «camming out», and a breaker bar. Now if you’ve done things on your car already you might have these, but if not go out and get a set. This also means having the right tools for the job.

rebuild a car engine Have some good friends. Whether they are car enthusiasts or not, friends can make your rebuild project so much easier. I was very lucky in this regard, and have had people all over the world offer me encouragement online through internet forums and emails, and also here in Okinawa people have been helpful and… well, what god friends and good people should be.

Not analyzing the go-kart design is okay to a certain extent, until you discover that when you step on the gas the clutch smokes and the go kart doesn’t really move. Also the go kart is so heavy that it takes three people to get it back in the garage. And it that wasn’t bad enough now the go kart doesn’t corner very well (it just goes straight), it is tipsy (likes to ride on two wheels) and the frame keeps bending and sagging. Things start breaking off, and you just throw your hands up and say enough! All these things could be prevented by analyzing the go kart.
