"I raced a 125cc gearbox kart in sprint in the 1970's. Most memorable was the night racing under lights at the Tunarama title at the 330metre long Port Lincoln Gokart club track. My first year I won the 50 lapper at the end of…"
"Yes it would be before 1971 .... the 250cc engined karts were racing locally in the 1960's and had their first Australian Championship in 1969, back then all were only single cylinder engines . I also remember the winner , he…"
"Gentlemen , not wanting to go too far with this but 250cc gearbox engined karts were raced at both Bolivar and Pines tracks in SA for many years, and Corio in Victoria. The first race meeting of each SA season was run at Pines and the day…"
"The carbs are not difficult, you just need to learn what is required and what not. Try this article on how to set the main jet , its a lot easier than teaching the driver to play with adjustable jets as most do not get it until…"
"You did not say if it is an EVO or earlier model, so I assume it is an earlier one since you are pressing the starter button. ?

"You have obviously reassembled it all wrong. Take the starter apart again and make sure the wires from the brushes do not touch anything they should not, and the rubber grommet sits correctly around the brass arm of the brush that has…"
"A question to you Richard ... have you seen any X30's run at Lakeside or Qld raceway ?? Am interested to know how they went as we are getting asked about putting them out with the Superkarts down here in the south ??

Just saw your price list online for the WM08 Wheel Set Douglas "SE" 130/212 Solid Magnesium Wheels.
You have two rear wheel sizes listed 210 and 212. Can you tell me what performance difference can be expected when using the 212 instead of a 210? My kart is an Arrow BMAX and it would appear as though the current rear wheel size is 210. Also is 212 the maximum you can or should go to when using MG Reds?
