"I've always had mine set low, axle up. It's what crg recommend in normal dry conditions. I have tried high, but kart did not respond well. Never tried middle."

"i always assumed it was a 2 setting adjustment, either up or down. Otherwise pretty hard to get axle height same both sides, can be done though. What chassis?"

"If it's engaging and cranking, and blowing a mist of fuel out the exhaust. It could be low comp. Possibly carboned up ring due to 16:1 castor. If that's what your using."

vince ravese replied to Brendan's discussion Lots of people are selling their X30s... Why?
"If the carb and exhaust upgrade prove to be quicker, they won't be on the market long. Hard to sell an engine at the moment as the market is in limbo. Lots of people waiting to see some results. Some people trying to sell prematurely and…"

Marc Muir replied to vince ravese's discussion welding x30 exhaust flex
"There's a new Exhaust available soon similar to the KA100. No flex or springs and maybe a performance increase."

vince ravese replied to Kane Richards's discussion Iame X30 Upgrade
"KA homo release states "designed to achieve same performance level as existing x30", so why a weight increase?"

vince ravese replied to Kane Richards's discussion Iame X30 Upgrade
"Wow, every single accessory has changed! If there is a performance change, which I'm sure there will be, it won't be cheap having to upgrade both the carb and exhaust! This makes selling a second hand x30 pretty tough!"

David Arnold replied to vince ravese's discussion 2018 exhaust update for X30
"So this appears to be for noise reduction rather than anything else. Does Australia really need to worry about this making karters need to spend still money? if its that much in the UK, I would expect another 20-30% on that atleast."
