does any have brake pads for a 1979 zip kart?

Some interesting photos of a DAP kart fitted with a DAP ( Corsair ) T80 in the photo gallery

Thanks for the offer Mark but I am Brisbane based and will not be able to make it to Oran Park

I think I'd have a spare big butterfly Mikuni if you'd like to try that instead of the Ibea slide. Are you in Sydney?

I was trying to keep 2 karts running so I eventually gave up as I did not want to lose any more track time. I will have to take it out for a private test sometime.
I had never used an Ibea 3 jet carb before so I am not sure I had the settings right.
Alf Capri gave me some advice but I did not have time to try it out.
It started OK but I could not keep it running without choking most of the time.
It will be great when I get it sorted....

I was actually going to ask you how the K30 went. I've been following that you had one. I brought 3 back from the US

Have fun with the K30s.
I ran mine for the first time last weekend at Toowoomba but never got the carburation sorted. From what little running I did it had awesome poer.

Hi Allan,

Any update on numbers for Oran Park? I have two K30s I'm trying to get together but time is against me.

I believe you could actually race this kart in the F100 open class that they have been running at club meetings as a feature class. The only thing you would need to do is make sure its to the current rule book such as - column collar, wire around exhaust etc....

Thanks Allan, I thought being as air cooled engines are no longer in FA it might have been a chance. I'll just have to sit on this old bird a bit longer :)
