    I am wanting to standardize on axles for my Speedy, but want to save some cash and not go TK. Any recommendations for vendors and manufactures of good axles that I can go to??  Also, moving to Denver.  Anyone out there at The Track running X-30 or all Rotax?

    I”d just go with the basic skm/intrepid/italkart product line.  Pretty sure all 3 are from the same manufacturing plant, with the only difference being the name plate.  Italian Motors has good selection and free shipping.  Fastech about the same with lower price but you pay for shipping.

    Hi Michael. TAG=Rotax at The Track. Here’s a link with the 2015 class structure.

    The Colorado Junior Karting Club will also be running an adult open TAG class. More info here…

    Hope this helps.

    So NO other motors but Rotax?  Really ?  What are they thinking.  I guess I’m not running a tag there. Shifters?  I have a Stock Honda. Do they get a turnout for them?

     

    Thanks for the axle advice.

    I’m new to the Colorado karting scene this year also, so I’m not entirely sure what the reasoning is behind Rotax being the only TAG motor run at The Track. I’m guessing it’s because they’re the regional qualifying series for RMC nationals.

    It looks like they had some turnout for spec 125 last year. The LO206 also seems to be coming on strong in Colorado. Here’s the results from last year which should give you a better idea of the numbers.

    I’m nowhere near Denver, but I’ve showed up at “rotax only” races in other states with a leopard and been allowed to race with the understanding I’m automatically DQ’d as far as points go.  Since I was there for the racing and not for the plastic trophy, that was fine with me.  Of course, I called ahead and cleared it with the race organizer ahead of time.
