    probably not so well. They just aren't built to rev and put out big lightweight hp like a dirt bike or race cart engine.

    Flat head, 5 horse Briggs used to be the thing in it's category of cart racing.
    I haven't kept up with what they're running now.
    Won't be very light weight engine for a saw and the splash oiling system wasn't built for
    picking up and swing the motor like a saw gets handled.

    google might accidentally bring up a link or two for some cart useful forums.
