Your Projects: The LS1-KART Is What You Get When You Add Lightness to a C5 Corvette

Sure, we may all know a thing or two about C5 Corvettes, but nothing quite like the LS1-powered go-kart that forum user Go_Gators has created.

The plan was to build a "sub-$10k street, autocross and occasional track day missile that is highly reliable and maintainable. This 400-horsepower kart will weigh close to 2250 pounds.

The build thread now goes 33 pages deep on the forum. Vicariously live through this one or, perhaps, replicate yourself.

Appreciate the love!

Always fun to go back and read the early posts. And the LS1-KART has been fun the whole time, going on 3 years now!
