More Go Kart Footage…

More Go Kart Footage...

Well its been a while since any videos were made so i got some unseen Go Kart footage from last year and made another clip.. in it Leebo crashes it into some trees, only thing is was that he was quite a way away from the cam so look into the distance close when watching, in the first two minutes or so its there, (from 17s to 22s),  ‘NGFB‘ laughs so when you have seen that you know its happened.. in fact EVERYONE there at the time laughed.. its also the very last clip on the vid too..
(Sorry for quality, been having trouble ALL day yesterday with rendering) anyway, Enjoy!  New Video with slightly more footage now below!


What will GFB site be??

What will GFB site be??

Nathan has deemed this site to be a “Blog-Type” site and a bit of fun at the same time! , In the future we will post up updates on Kart jobs and whatever else to do with them on progress of adjustments on them or modifications like new engines or tyres and hopefully time trial times when teething problems are sorted with the new kart.. for now keep checking back here now and again see how life on a weekend at GFB Developments goes..

Future jobs known of are engine mounts on new kart, Leebo’s Polo to be possibly lowered and spray job on the Corsa to be completed.. after that we could end up starting back up on the MG Midget!


GFB Go Kart no.2 Engine Move..

GFB Go Kart no.2 Engine Move..

On Bank holiday monday the newest addition kart was pulled out and started on, due to the previous design of it having its side mounted engine which in time snapped the thick threaded bar which held it.. as of now the engine now sits behind the driver like “Old Faithful” kart engine does, the kart also had its main frame points taken off at the rear axle so it would sit higher after a re-weld underneath of the frame. The Kart now sits like a dragster and may have to have a weld or too to take it off the floor as its only millimetres off it now at the front end. No doubt work will continue until its right. Although “NGFB” boggers off to Magaluf soon so it will have to wait.. GFB will be extremely quiet until mid September! Makes a change!
