"Repairing magnesium is seriously difficult - it's LUDICROUSLY flammable. I can't imagine fixing a wheel would be cheaper than buying one. Almost all brands have them available individually."

Future Engine Selection Process

It’s an exciting time for karting. We’re a month away from the beginning of Governance, a moment that is literally years in the making.

Hey Col,

 

Love Kartbook, but just as a suggestion, would it be possible to add a date filter to the forum search. If you do a keyword search in the marketplace, results are not in date order.

 

Not a criticism, just a suggestion, as I say, I love kartbook, its one of my favourite sites.

 

Regards

 

Greg

Hello Col,

I'm afraid it is the same person...

Pleased that you say some things I wrote were useful for you, and hope I didn't lead you down to many long and winding dead ends.

I doubt I'll be getting into too many long (winded?) ediscussions, these days I'm too busy / tired most of the time.

Regards,

John.
