awd go kart
Hells yea!! Dude, an AWD Go kart with 140 horsepower?! You'd be tearing up the streets of Danbury dude! The brakes will be more than sufficient considering you'd be dropping over a thousand pounds off the chassis they were meant for. Get some decent tires and you're all set.

I got a crazy idea, how about you purchase your L and then swap over tranny, rear diff and your interior as well as anything else you plan to use. Then you sell the old rs motor and use thag money to boost the 1.8 in the l.

ok....

Although a boosted L could be just a reliable as any RS motor, ecspecailly one that has suffered severe front end damage.
