Whilst owning the full size Imp, I thought it would be fun to build a half scale version for my sons.
By an amazing stroke of luck , go-karts of that time happened to run mainly on a wheelbase of 3ft 9in, exactly half the length of the Imp chassis which measured 7ft 6in.
Although the wheelbase was spot-on, the track was quite a bit too wide, necessitating some surgery in the king pin support brackets.
An electric motor was sourced from a Lucas subsidiary, and we were away.
