I am building a Pit Kart (wagon) to pull a midget race car

This kart is pulling a 1/4 midget race car - extra tires - tools, etc. and will weight between 650-800 lbs and has a 48" wheel base and is 36" wide.  I would like to have a kit build with a list of parts needed using a motor #MOT-CET24450P.  I saw your kits like KIT-106 which have everything listed but this motor will need different parts because of the sprockets & chain size available. I think I would like to use this motor because of the Gear reduction and the available mount which will work for my application. I have one now which used a KIT-106 and worked okay but we used a jackshaft from engine to wheel to get reduction right. The kart has a 48" pull handle on it which is what I will need also.  The handle has switch and throttle mounted to it so you can work everything as you are pulling it or walking with the kart.  It will also need a reverse switch so you can move it around the pits & trailer, etc.  The rear tires are 12" tall or about 35" cir.  I can adapt a sprocket to the wheel hub and just use your regular sprockets.  I am not sure what wlse you need to know so I will wait to hear back from you.

I can make a new kit with a controller that has forward and reverse.

Item # MOT-CTE24450P is currently out of stock and on back order with our distributor. I am not exactly sure when we will be getting more in stock, maybe in a month or maybe in a few months. Could you use our identical 24V 450W gear motor and similar mounting bracket MOT-24450G and HDW-250?

Please see pictures of these parts below.


 If this is the same, it will work because all I wanted was a mount to motor so I could make a mount on the kart to accept the motor and hardware.

The MOT-24450G motor is identical to the MOT-CTE24450P motor except it does not have a mounting plate. The HDW-250 mounting late is made for the MOT-24450G motor so it will work perfectly as a template to make a new mounting plate.

I made a kit that should have everything you need. It is item # KIT-140. Here is a link to it:

If you need me to make any changes or adjustments to the kit let me know and I will modify it to suit your needs.


The motor sprocket has 9 teeth and is for 1/2" x 1/8" (#410) bicycle chain. This size of chain is used on single speed bicycles like BMX and cruiser bikes so it is a very common size of chain.

We carry sprockets for 1/2" x 1/8" (#410) bicycle chain along with axle hubs plus freewheels and freewheel to axle adapters on this page:

We also make custom wheel and axle sprockets for #410 chain on this page:
