Go-Kart Parts

We are building a new parts list here, where we’ll put links to all the parts you need to build your go kart. We don’t sell the parts ourselves as there are a lot of great suppliers out there already. We find BMI Karts is a great place for most parts. Amazon is a great resource too, but a little hit and miss depending on which companies are currently selling.


Controls: steering, brakes and power

Brake and throttle pedals: These are the basic standard Azusa brake and throttle pedals that are used on almost every go kart.  Very simple but bulletproof design for your kart.

Steering Wheel: Really solid but basic steering wheel for your kart. Nothing too fancy here.

Tie Rod Kit: Tie rods and rod ends connect to your kart’s steering column and wheel spindles to help you turn.  They come in different sizes depending on your kart setup.  We’ve included a link below to the Amazon page for one tie-rod size, but frankly BMI Karts has a better selection.

Steering shaft: The steering shaft is what connects your steering wheel to the tie rods or your rack and pinion mechanism. The simplest version used on our basic carts have “Pitman Arms” which are simply small levers which connect to the tie rods. Again, we find BMI karts has the best selection here but have included one basic steering shaft on Amazon below.

Rack and Pinion: This is a more sophisticated and heavy duty steering mechanism. Our GrandDaddy and Arachnid carts use these Latest Rage rack and pinion systems as the heart of their steering setup. There will be an insert for a splined steering rod (no need for Pitman arms) and the ends connect to your rods through heim joints.
