"Hi David, I have a couple. A Velsa Spitfire (Villiers 9E) and now this one. Other karts have taken precedence though. I think the time is close though. Chippo asked me when I was turning up with a real vintage kart recently, so I better get to…"
"The article is right, Chippo, they are built really well.Awesome steering wheel.The detail in the twin tank and fittings is marvellous.It is complete, but has some minor mods to the engine mounts.The description of the brakes in the article is very…"
"Chippo - thanks for these - great!I will post a couple of pictures of the one I have just acquired in a tick.Yep - it seems like they are a 1986 homologation. But I have not seen the papers as yet - hope to have them in a few days - will pass them…"
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.
