    I’m going to be doing an autox soon and I’m wondering how some have gone about running their shifter kart at the event. Do you start it on the stand or on the ground? If on the ground is it push start or raising the rear and starting with a strap? Do you bring someone with you to help you or are people at the event willing to lend a hand with a push start or load/unload the kart stand? I’ve never done an Autox so any info would be appreciated.

    I usually start mine on the stand, it wont idle so you need a second person to help get it off the stand and keep it running while you get in the seat… With my set up (stock moto and a pump around). I find that NO CHOKE works best. Its always good to start it a few min BEFORE grid to make sure it starts… Shifters can be tricky… hope this helps

    No idea why a stock motor won’t sit and idle..

    Here is how I did it alone.    4×4 under right rear frame tubes,  3rd gear wrap strap around tire.   get dressed,  3 cars to go pull strap and it always fired no sweat.  shift to neutral take off 4×4 and get in seat roll off to grid.

    Obviously this after you have gotten the motor warm pre-grid on the stand.
