Default Finks Spiderbox Build

Picked up a Spiderbox a few months ago and am doing a 420cc swap on it. My kids have Go Karts and I wanted one that I could ride around in with my youngest daughter so her and I are building this one for us. Sons is a Streaker 8 and my oldest daughter has the Yerf-dog 3002. Cut up the Swing arm. The 150cc engine that came with it was is bad shape and the 420cc was on sale. Going to go with a heavier shock in the rear if anyone has suggestions on what a good shock for the rear is that will give me some extra lift would be awesome. I did a quick mockup of the engine yesterday and today I tore down the front bulkhead to get ready for all the new BDX parts that I ordered. Getting the works. going with a 22X11-8's in the rear and a 19x7-8's in the front. Also getting the Steering rack sent out for extra teeth cut into the rack from buggy depot.

I have high hopes for it. Not looking to a speed machine. Pit vehicle for when we go to the track and something that can pull my dads mustang around the track during test and tunes. Just waiting on some warmer weather so I can start working in the garage again.
