Go-kart upgrade: plastic "wheels" to real tires Answered
My son received a Kettler Go-Kart (2nd hand adventure) for Christmas, and it's a lot of fun, even for the mom who crams herself into it to give chase to the kids (make great tight turns).
Goal: take it a bit more off-road than asphalt and smoothish ground.
Currently: Plastic, rear wheel drive wheels (think Hot Wheel front wheel material we grew up with).
Where I'm at, after perusing the internet for all things pedal go-karty:
I feel like the front wheel assembly will be pretty easy to replicate. The nature of rear wheel drive, which stays straight (fixed) is the challenge. Images attached.
What's the answer to the rear wheel drive assembly? How to replicate rear fixed driving wheel with wheels available at the big box store, or is there another question that needs to be answered first? is the chief concern prior to fully disassembling the go-cart.
And/ OR, What are the magic words for finding the "wheel" answer?
Thank you in advance!
