About Us

Our Company

Co-owners Matt Gropp and Kevin Kruse started Elite Welding & Fabrication LLC and Status Chassis in January 2010. With more than 14 years of welding and manufacturing experience, we specialize in all types of TIG and MIG welding, custom tube bending, small engine repair, and go-kart and all other types of racing repair, scaling, and setup. We are a supplier for go-kart parts and tires, and are the Midwest distributor for ButlerBuilt racing seats.

Our Status Chassis Karts

Matt's experience in welding and manufacturing enable him, along with Kevin, to produce competitive custom-built cage karts. All karts are manufactured with a TIG welded chromoly tubing chassis for extra strength and durability, with built-in safety features to create the safest kart available. They are fully adjustable front and rear, with an L-Block front end and weight jack rear end standard. Karts are custom fit to drivers from age four and up. Other features include extra side bars (Trey bars) for added driver safety, standard fiberglass bodies, and snorkel hoods (visor included as an added bonus). Status Chassis Kart owners can look good, be safe and run fast all at the same time! Call or email for any additional information or to order your new Status Chassis Kart today!
