"I would be very surprised if the Clerk of the Course let this kart  participate because it is dangerous. Nearly 2.5 times the weight of the driver. We used to call them 'missiles'!"

richard gagie replied to Kristian Mizdrak's discussion Lead Placement
"Agree with the above re overall maximum kart weight. Check your class.Never heard of anyone putting 32 kg weight on kart. Helped mate put 20kg lead on his kart. Put it 35% at front & 65% at rear. Get cheap scales (4) & put 1 under each wheel…"

richard gagie replied to brett ellwood's discussion the kt100 j motor
"The high jet on the J is really only for show as it does not come into play until around 11,000 revs which is about top revs for a J. The same as you Terry,about 1.5-1.75 out on the low & just crack the high needle open. ck."

richard gagie replied to Ashley Zahl's discussion Ever thought about trying Superkarts?
"Honestly Anthony the low numbers are due to 2 factors. The cost of entry used to be $295 (2016) which is a large amount compared to $80 in Sprint Karting but is beyond the control of the Club. Secondly running meetings over 2 days is not the way to…"

"If killing karting at grassroots level is winning then I agree with you. It is not the aim of Karting Australia (KA) to make massive profits at the expense of karters but to put this back into karting, and not solely at the prestige level.…"

richard gagie replied to Neville Scullion's discussion Is this forum become barren?

Hi Richard, I will keep your offer in mind. The buyer is picking it up on the weekend. Wish you responded in time. I would have preferred for this motor to have stayed in Superkarting. Was advertised on the Superkart forum for months.  Has lap records at LS 59.276 and QR Nat circuit 1.25.176. Best regards, Gary.
