Default Finished my cart, then crashed it

Plum Quick Assassin motor and seats this week-end. **** thing was wild. Through the woods with-out a hiccup. Up hills like they were not there. Goofing off while my neighbor was shooting a video, bouncing over a pile of snow, I crashed into the granite light pole in front of my house. Front of frame bent. Anybody got any tips on how to straighten this mess?

Pictures here http://www.buggiesgonewild.com/membe...01-cc-48v.html

Guess I should have gotten more cart driving experience before dropping in a Plum Quick motor.

Dude, I feel your pain...Last year I just got my car painted and within 2 weeks some a-hole hit my front bumper in a parking lot and left a 5"x7" gash in the new paint. Didn't even leave a note or anything..

Maybe you should consider getting another cart and transfer all your new stuff to that one? Keep the rest for parts. My only advice to you: Invest in Disk Brakes and Seat Belts! Good luck with your repairs.

Every time I tried to straighten aluminum after it was bent it just cracks, once you bend it, it only bends once, and when you try to bend it back it cracks/breaks, the only way I see to fix it is, cut and fab a new front end, or another frame

2 hands on the wheel all the time and always look in front of you!

That really sucks! Go by cart shops and find a scrapped out junker with a good battery bay. Just swap everything to the new frame.
