This ThunderKart was in rough shape. The seat was falling apart, the greyhound 6.5 hp engine didn’t run, the maxtorque 20 series torque converter was sticking, and it just didn’t look so hot.
I kept the original seat cover that said “thunderkarts” and redid the rest with high density foam, marine vinyl, and red welting (piping).
I also inserted some cabinet runner (found at any hardware store that sells carpet/cabinets) onto the floor pan to cover up the old nasty floor.
The seat looks pretty good. I fixed up the engine and,painted the rims, and those 22 inch knobby tires are my favorite part of the go kart.
I let my nephew test it out prior to selling this kart.

This is the video I made promoting the go kart prior to selling it.
