It will work great! We have 2 of those, and we also have 2 OTK karts
The Tony karts are awesome too, there is something different about the Birels though. The back end flexes really nice, especially when you accidentally ride over the kerbs with your rear tires, it will absorbe the impact and not upset the kart nor will toss you across the other side of the track.
We also run Yamaha, and KPV. I think you’ll like it.September 2, 2016 at 3:40 pm #71220
I had the same issue, same kind of body also
I tried all the ones you mentioned, and an OTK #3 (too tight)
Then I took my chances and ordered an OTK #4 And my butt, hips and lower thorso fit very well, the only issue is that the upper part of my body will need lots of extra padding to hold me fit and in place.
I don’t think there are many options for my body shape, other than Ribtech Deep seat, but I don’t want one of those.
Anyhow, that’s what I did and it worked for me. Good luck. Freddy.August 31, 2016 at 12:19 pm #71138

Welcome to the sport
No worries, seat strut cracks do break from time to time, being the one closest to the engine most likely the seller did not notice, or it fail while driving
I’ve had a few cracked on me several times from fatigue. This doesn’t mean you got a bad chassis.
Very important to have the right angle and correct bend on the strut before installation, otherwise it will fail again, this means if it doesn’t touch the seat once you install it at the cassettes then it’s probably not at the right angle.
It needs to be flushed with the seat and have very minimum pressure to it, almost like spring loaded rod.
You may get away by re welding it and be ok for a long time, but may be a good idea to always have some spare ones ( you just never know when one of them is gonna fail during a race weekend)
I hope we’re talking about the chrome seat struts and not the actual chassis tabs? Good luck to you and have fun. Fast Freddy.August 23, 2016 at 10:57 pm #70868August 23, 2016 at 10:56 pm #70867

That’s exactly what I was thinking L0206, that’s too funny, these were my first thoughts, I also thought it could be a 2004 model, but when I saw the side pod nerf bars location on the sides rather than towards the front, then I thought it would have to be newer, but I could be wrong.
Overall good chassis though.August 4, 2016 at 8:17 am #70050
Thank you very much
I will consider those.August 4, 2016 at 12:15 am #70025
This seems to be a 2008 Paul Tracy Kart, made by CRG
It should be a good club level chassis for a season, if there’s a class for that engine at your club. Once you get better, and more competitive eventually you’re gonna wanna go faster and be able to compete in bigger events, which means newer kart, at least a year old kart.
Honestly all you need is a rear plastic bumper and mounting brackets, you can use the same hardware inside the frame rails, but will need longer bolts.
Welcome to the sport, here’s a link to your parts neededAugust 3, 2016 at 10:42 am #70012
Mark, thank you for your input
Are you talking about these?August 2, 2016 at 5:28 pm #69975
Brian, Thank you for your input, and yes, I’m very familiar with the installation process, as we always install them on our OTK karts, but for what ever reason these don’t fit Ricciardo Karts, or Birel Karts (the tabs are different )
My question to you is: What brand protectors are you using?
Kart Lift, Kerb Rider, etc? I’m really interested to know which ones fits your Birels. Thank you.July 5, 2016 at 9:44 am #68087
I have 2 used, in good shape 2 disc dry clutches, for Senior ( Horstman )
You can probably get 3 good races out of them before rebuilding
And I also have about 2 or 3 Wet clutches (L&T) In great shape.
P.M. Me if still interested.July 5, 2016 at 9:36 am #68086
How old do you want them? Like 1 race old? Or Worn tires?
Do they only have to be Bridgestones YLC, or Can they be MG Yellows too?June 25, 2016 at 10:21 pm #67740
From what I understand RR setup is different, chassis has to be tighter or it will be very lose on the corners, and you’ll be fighting that the whole time.
Sprint set up you have to free up the kart to get it to glide through the corners
I don’t understand about steel bumper? Unless you’re talking about the rear bumper, I’m not a big fan of metal bumpers on the rear, I like plastic bumpers better, and they do have brackets for those to fit your Margay Kart.
You wanna tighten up the bumper for RR, and loosen it up for Sprint racing.
I don’t know what the specs are for your chassis for front track or for rear track, you may wanna ask the guys you run with at the track, but it is also different from RR to Sprint. My 2 cents.June 25, 2016 at 10:13 am #67726
Jeremy, Morgan has a good point
You may also wanna try Fastenal, I have shipped many karts with them, it only costs about $150 for the whole thing, including engine and your box of parts, as long as it fits inside your crate, or seat of the kart.
They’ll drop it off at the nearest Fastenal store where your buyer lives.June 24, 2016 at 7:31 pm #67722
Alright, Sebastian, looks like us Bakersfield boys are gonna accept your invitation. I’m talking to my Son about it, and he wants to go, as he didn’t do too well at the Cal state Championship last weekend.
I think Tyler Coffman and Indy Sandoval are going
What the minimum weight? 360?June 24, 2016 at 11:59 am #67715
If I’m not mistaken Ital Karts and Intrepid share a few parts, so the floor pan should be the same.
Unless you’re sold on just having the original factory pan with graphics and allJune 23, 2016 at 10:13 pm #67680
Contact Fastec, they may be able to order you one
Or Acceleration http://www.accelerationkarting.com/
Or Italian Motors http://italianmotors.com/June 22, 2016 at 7:40 pm #67630
Sold, please delete.

That looks like a smoken deal
Man! I would love to have one of those Comp Karts so badly though!
But I think I have to be cool enough to have one first Lol.
Hey, buddy I saw you at the track last weekend, I really wanted to stop by and say hi, but I was so busy wrenching for 2 guys, and time just ran out. But I saw you playing foot ball with your boys at the end of the day. It was nice to see you, bud.
I’ll ask my buddies and see if anyone wants that FA cadet kart
