Probably not the greatest idea, but it should be fun

Recommended Posts

Thanks to watching a few YouTube videos, we got the bug to build a miata kart.  The main difference from the other builds will be that, we want it as safe as possible, put in an actual cage, and it will be on an ND platform.  Sliced and diced for 2 days, going to our friends shop for cage installation and hope to have it done in the next few weeks.

Pretty rad. Fun to see an NC without its skin, too.

I beileve this is an ND, and not an NC, correct?  Very cool project... I've always liked the "exo" cars, even if usually they are a deathtrap... very cool to see one being done the "right way".

Yes, ND, but it is using an NC cage as a baseline, maybe that is what mixed Robert up.

Yes! I've always wondered just how extreme it can get with a Miata. And I presume this will probably be the first ND Miata Kart? This will be fun. Any chance this can get on track? Would love to see some lap times and on board video!

I would guess weight will be around 1600.  Paint will be black body with orange cage and bash bars, maybe house of kolor tangelo orange. 

All done, going to paint this week
