Default big, big project

Ok, so here's the deal. I have 26cc engine with centrifugal clutch all set up and ready to go. I don't have anything to put it on however. I was thinking of using one of those pedal cars with chain drive but can't find any with pneumatic tires or really anything i like. i was looking at small go cart frames but can't find anything there either. I was wondering if there is somewhere i can get a small chassis somewhere to use. I pretty much am looking for anything helpful on this project you can give me so all suggestions are welcome. I also thought of building a small tube chassis but am hung up on the steering and braking. PLEASE HELP!!! Oh, and thanks ahead of time...

I have thot of doing somthing like you have said for a long time and often become stumped when I get to steering. Three ways I have thot of to steer it is 1. a whole bunch of servos 2. a electric motor ran through a series of gears to slow it doun but then it wont return back to center. On a cupple of epesodes of the show mythbusters they make real cars rc. Maby if you could find a tape of the show it would be usefull.

well, the design stage is still going on and i'm a little stumped on the suspension. I have six savage shocks, just stock, that i can use. I was thinking of using a swingarm setup much like an ATV. I am going to use sealed bearings on the whole thing so that's not really and issue, it will move free. I just wish i could find some smaller ones. I think i have the steering figured out but of course until i start and play with it a bit it will be hit and miss.
