Hi.... If I bought a experimental like the popular kitfox could I charge for rides? this would be an ELSA and not an SLSA. Not for a profit but just to share cost? thanks

No. It’s one of the limitations on experimentals. See FAR 91.319, particularly subparagraphs (e) and (f). It’s also discussed in the FSIMs(1), FAA Order 8900.1:
An owner of an experimental aircraft may not receive compensation for the use of their aircraft to provide flight training except in accordance with a LODA issued under § 91.319(h) and described in paragraph 3-293. An owner of an experimental LSA may not rent the experimental LSA to a person for the purpose of conducting solo flights.
(1) Not that many are familiar with the “Flight Standards Information Management System.” It’s an FAA Order that describes many of the procedures that apply to certification activities.
(2) Letter of Deviation Authority. Various regs have language authorizing the FAA to waiver certain requirements.
