Have you got any pictures or info on your McCulloch engine with the Victa starter cup intake??

G'day Mike,

 

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.  

Please let me know when you can.

Cheers

Randy

Hi Mike,

Are you entering the 135cc Hutless in the Robert Harrison Memorial Twin Supers event

at the Australian Vintage Kart Prix?

Looks like there will be a top turn out of 130-135cc karts.

I think we will put a trophy up for these spec karts too.

Mike,

I have been buying quite a bit of stuff from DAPWTR and finding him reliable and prompt with delivery, am bidding on some other items of his at the moment.

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.

Hi Mike,
Happy for you to add kart to site, we just don't think that it is truely worthy of a place on the site as it is a bit of a hybrid. Will leave it with you to make call.

Heath
