"Max if I'm understanding you the engine uses a 50mm flex & the muffler uses a 48mm flex?

That engine looks like a Komet K71 which was devised & distributed originally by Lynn Haddock in the USA for their specific piston port class.

Member Tom Manly mentioned that a while back you posted an online kart magazine link, of a test between Ayrton Senna's kart vs a current day rotax kart. If you don't mind, could you please re-post it as I would love to read the comparatives of both the karts.
Hi Mike. My son and I are new to karting and I saw on the AUSKART website that they do a come and try at their race meets. How much notice is required ?? My son is 7 yrs 8 months old and I would like him to try it out. Who should we contact to make this happen ?? I ask you because I've seen you in discussions about the 4 stroke guys at Lakeside.
We have a non-running kart that we've picked up and I am investigating which direction we should take with him. The kart came with an S-80 Comer. We will use the Comer for practice purposes, and for Sam (my son) to learn how to drive. Once he is good enough, or the engine craters, we will decide what engine/series to go with. I like the idea of the 4 strokes, as I believe they are longer lasting and we won't need to spend the $$$ getting it blueprinted etc for him to be competitive. It also looks like the AUSKART series is based more on having fun while competing.
Hi Mike, That would be great. I cant find the comment you sent with your email address, could you please send it again. I will forward all the photos i have and i am also in the process of getting some old 8mm film changed to DVD and we prety sure it is of karting in the 60's to 70's. When i recieve it and see what it is i will let you know and if you would like a copy i will send it to you.
