Ah that sucks. I got a Bengio after I hurt my ribs and I think it's great, I can't feel a thing on my ribs.


Yeah I'll be racing at the City Cup. I fixed an issue with the engine before the weekend and it seemed like it made a difference so I'm looking forward to it.

  Gday Pat, I have had a check of that and as I'm still learning lots I have had the alignment played with for dry racing. I havent got lazers yet but they are on my list. Something you might be able to help me with is getting the micron working. I believed it may have been the lazer but tried my sons micron 3 with it and it worked my next move is puting the 4 on his kart and trying that. Everything seems to be working except the lap timing. This is not a huge issue for me as yet cos my lap times havent been very important to me up until now so any hints you may have on getting the thing working would be helpful. I have bought another frame for obvious reasons and was told it may be because the floor sheet was to thick so I have cut a hole for the semsor but still no luck, your help and input would be much appreciated. Do you ever got to any vic track for racing??

if you want feedback on the CIK X1 i can tell you that they work very well the setup on them is quite simple and the kart is very consistant setup for these karts is everywhere and does'nt take long to figure out what works and what does'nt work they may be very expensive but if you buy one you know your getting a good kart that will work well
