    When I start my engines, everything seems fine. When I pull out on the track, I get a sensation the chassis is banging on the ground, but it’s not. Then after a lap, the banging is gone. I’m pretty sure this is the engine. Is this normal or a symptom of a used engine on it’s way to failure?

    Don’t over think it.  Service your clutch, eg: remove, disassemble, clean/lub, check for damage..reinstall.  It could be clutch chatter.  Make sure the chain is properly adjusted.  If it’s too loose, it might be jumping teeth.  206’s have no HP, so I suspect you’ll find the problem pretty easily.

    Let us know what you find,

    Yup! Clark is right, and spot on!

    Also see if clutch may need to be re clocked, that might be your issue too.
