Updates!

Hey all, just sending out an update on #14. I've replaced the wheels and tires on all 4 corners using 2 piece 6" wheels and tires from BMI Karts. Front spindles need to be replaced with longer bolts and the real axle needs to have sleeves added to utilize a 3/4" keyed bore wheel. The ride difference...

Re: Fun with leaves

Not recently, but I think that can be arranged today. Nice crisp cold day, plenty of leaves out on the street, plus I need to run the tank dry for winter. That is unless I add a plow for the driveway.

Fun with leaves

Thought I'd post an update since it's been a while. Been toying and tinkering and had a blast sliding around on the leaves this weekend. With the tread nearly bare at all 4 corners you really need to get the tires heated up for them to stick at all, and there's a lot of understeer but I attribute th...

I was quick to get on the kart and hadn't realized that since the temp dropped last week the bolts on my brake hub came loose. 3 out of 4 came off. Luckily I noticed and shut it down before me or anyone...

Re: 4hp Engine Tweaking

The only thing I've done is adjust the screw that is threaded through the spring (which I do depending on who is driving). I've read up on opening up the case to remove the governor but I'm not gonna do that!

4hp Engine Tweaking

Hey guys, Has anyone started to make any adjustments to their engines? At WOT I get a hesitation, which I assume is lack of gas. I also assume this means I either have a clogged needle or need one with a larger bore. 1 - Have any of you done this before 2- Any idea where to get a new needle jet with...

Re: Brake Help and Green Cord ?

Unless I'm mistaken, I think that brake hub is not right, the set screw should be on the other side.

Re: Picture Thread

That's EXACTLY what unwanted to do but my ceiling height isn't high enough for that to make sense. Looks great!

Re: Engine mount

No, that's not right. The mounting plate should be flipped over.
