We're on our third second hand Kinetic, although each one is getting newer -- fewer races before we bought it. Now on a 2012 chassis running Rotax senior with front brakes. 

The other obvious set up to experiment with is removing the rear bar.

Hi Tim,

Thanks for the info, its good to have a basic setup to start working from. Most likely be a few weeks before it will get tested.

By the way the original message should say 2nd hand Kinetic.

Hi Brett -- Here is a basic set up I was given a couple of years ago. I'll be interested to see what the other Energy owners have to say. (This is translated from German, so forgive some strange formulations.) 

Rear chassis high
Front middle
Both seat stays in
Front bar out

For the eccenters, looking from the seat position:
The left at 3 clock
The right at 9 clock.
Front Hub 90's with 3-5 rings
Rear track 139.5mm

Then it 's about what makes the chassis react in various situations ...

  • Turn in understeer: Add castor by moving eccenter torwards 12 o’clock
  • Mid-turn understeer: Wider front hubs
  • Mid-turn oversteer: Narrower front hubs. Use 60 hubs and adjust. Move the front of the chassis down one washer (so 1 washer over the spindle and 3 below, or all the way to 0 over and 4 below).

Too little traction: Switch from the PS4/PS2 axle to the Parolin. Or as a second step to the Mza4. Further, change the original 90 hubs in the rear for maximum 100s.

Just picked up a 2nd Energy Kinetic, just wondering if anyone could supply me with initial setup settings (ie starting point). I would also like to check the seat position, so would be great if seat position measurements could also be supplied for TAG.

Energy Corse Australia has today announced a huge line-up for the 2013 CIK Stars of Karting Series presented by Castrol EDGE.

It is anticipated that there will be no less than ten karts from the Italian marque on the grid across the three Pro categories, including some high profile recruits.

Since re-launching the brand into Australia less than 12 months ago, Team Principal Adam Graham is delighted to have a significant number of karters on the grid in his product for 2013.

“I’m very excited about the year ahead and really looking forward to taking the challenge to the bigger teams,” said Energy Corse Australia boss Adam Graham.

“Given the fact that we only re-launched the brand into Australia less than 12 months ago and last year we headed to round one with just one kart on the entry list, to now look like we’ll have at least ten on the grid for round one in 2013 is very pleasing.”

After winning the Pro Gearbox (KZ2) Championship in 2012, Chris Hays will once again lead the way for the brand. However, Hays will have a number of counterparts on the grid in the same chassis.

One of the biggest recruits for the Energy brand is two-time runner-up in the championship Kel Treseder. The Queenslander will campaign an Energy chassis for 2013 under the Kel’s Karts and Parts banner with long-time supporter Ray Fulcher heading the team. The team will be boosted by the fact that one of the world’s leading mechanics Jon Targett will be spinning the spanners for Treseder.

“After only running a limited schedule during 2012, I’m more excited than ever before to be getting back behind the wheel in a big way during 2013,” said Treseder.

“I’ve known Adam Graham (Energy Corse Australia boss) for many years and he understands what it’s like to race at this level. In saying that, I’d also to thank the team at CRG Australia for all of their support over the past three seasons and wish them all the best for the upcoming season.

“My long-time sponsor Kel’s Karts and Parts will remain as the integral part of my program and I will be running under their banner once again for 2013 with the Energy chassis. I’m also really excited about having someone to the calibre of JT in my corner for the 2013 series.

“This year is shaping to be the toughest championship to win for many years, the level of competition is set to be close to a world level with the likes of Joey Hanssen doing the full series and many Aussies competing internationally throughout the year.”

Other Pro Gearbox drivers set to re-unite with Energy Corse Australia in 2013 include Troy Bretherton, Jason Faint and John Grother.

In the Pro Light (KF) ranks Jarryd Ebzery will make the change for Kosmic to Energy while still campaigning under the Harrington Doyle Racing banner. Long-time Leopard Light competitor Adam Willison will make the step up into the Pro ranks while one of Australia’s International open-wheel and Sports car driver John Martin is expected to make a number of guest appearances.

There are also a couple of junior drivers set to line-up in the ‘red, white and blue’ who are set to be announced in the coming weeks.

The 2013 CIK Stars of Karting Series presented by Castrol EDGE will begin in Ipswich, Queensland on February 23/24.

Chris Hays joins forces with Energy Corse Australia – From Energy C...

The newly formed Energy Corse Australia outfit has made a significant announcement today with one of the country’s leading drivers, Chris Hays, set to compete aboard the Italian-made kart during 2012.

Newly appointed importer of Energy Racing Karts Adam Graham, who raced for the factory Energy team in Europe during 1999, is excited about the Queensland teenager lining up as a part of his outfit throughout the year.

“I’ve been working on the Energy Corse Australia project for almost 12 months now and it feels great to have such a young talented driver like Chris come on board with the product,” said Graham.

“Already I’ve had a lot of interest already from drivers and teams, a number of whom are high profile drivers, which is very pleasing considering the first shipment of karts only landed in Australia this week.

“It has been a bit of a rush to get a handful of karts out ahead of the major events, which start with the CIK Stars of Karting Series later this month and it looks likely that we’ll have three or four karts on the grid come round two of the series and hopefully we can build on it from there into other categories.”

While his chassis has changed from Tony Kart to Energy, Hays will again have the support of Telecommunications giant Vodafone for his 2012 campaign. It will be the sixth year that Hays has enjoyed the support of the worldwide company.

“It’s great to have the continued support of Vodafone as I embark on a new challenge with the team at Energy,” said Hays.

“I’ve really enjoyed my eight years with Tony Kart, moving to Energy was probably the biggest decision that I’ve had to make in my karting career because Greg Smith and the guys in the team have been fantastic to me over the years.

“However, since moving into the Gearbox ranks I’ve never been able to get a real handle on the set-up of the Tony Kart at that level and entering my third crack at the championship I needed to make a change.

“The Energy karts seem to be working well overseas in the KZ championships and with Adam Graham (the new Australian importer) having a close relationship with the factory in Italy I’m very confident of a good year.”

Hays hopes to have his first test behind the wheel of his Energy kart this weekend at home track in Ipswich.
