    Sorry, Tom. I’ve been so busy that I never had a chance to look here all day, plus I’m setting up for a race this weekend.

    I have full rollers, no bare frames, I currently have 2 complete karts set up for LO206, but I don’t have an issue removing the engines and making them full rollers for you, I just sold one, and now I only have 2 left.

     

    Please send me yous email address and I can email you some pictures. Thank you. I am located in Bakersfield Ca. Shipping is no big deal for me.

    Tom

    I do have OTK Tony Karts, been using them on the Yamaha class, LO206 class as well.

    We do love them, they are super easy to tune, very fast out of the box, you can actually win races just by setting them up neutral.

    Compared to your old Emik Tony karts are so much easier to drive, with a lot less effort to steer.

     

    I do have 2 available older chassis if interested, they are extremely competitive still, my Son is not racing any more, and we don’t need 7 karts laying around the shop collecting dust. I have to get rid of all of our LO206 karts, and Yamaha karts.

     

    2014 Green Tony Kart EVK chassis

    2014 OTK Fernando Alonso Kart

     

    Let me know if this would work for you

    Ready for Laguna Seca?

    Here’s your chance to go fast, we set it up for you. This kart was very fast at Streets of Willow, and will be very fast at Laguna Seca as well.

    I agree with TJ Koyen

    The X30 is very strong and reliable, and you can still get great deals out there, many other older TAG packages may look attractive and cheap, but will cost you more in the long run.

    Honestly the new KA100 will blow your mind versus the KT100, will last longer, will feel more powerful and more fun. You can still get some smoken deals out there, and does not need to be blue printed, just bolt on and go, and it will be fast out of the box, will probably compete with and older stock TAG 125 motor, or be pretty close to it.

    I would buy either an X30 or KA100 period.

    Or if you’re on a budget and just wanna have fun, you can just buy an LO206 and it would be pretty close to a KT100 with an can. Except no rebuild costs at all.

    where did you set up your toe at?

    How much caster do you have?

    What air pressures are you running?

    Do you have enough weight at the front of the kart?

    What tires are you running?

    Is this track smooth, or rough?

    And does it do the same thing at any track? Or all tracks?

    I’m assuming your seat position is correct, and your weight distribution too.

    Bill, welcome to karting.

    I have 3 complete nice karts ready to race, unless you’ve already bought an engine for your future chassis, then I can sell you just the rolling chassis.

    I have 3 to choose from.

    Text me, or call me. (858) 717-2191 Freddy

    Anthony, you and your Dad will have lots of fun in this class, We’ve ran all classes, from shifter karts to LO206, and this class by far is the most fun, cheap and less stressful to race with, racing other classes can get very stressful, especially when you have 2 drivers running at the same time. LO206 once you figured out your gearing for that day and set up, then you’re good to go all day, just keep your chain lubed and inspect chain tension every outing.

    The answer to your other question is, any kart will do, but you don’t wanna get one that’s too old to compete, or one that parts are all worn out.

    We’ve ran so many different brands, and in reality most 2 cycle chassis can be converted to 4 cycle and do just fine, but many manufactures have stepped up their game with 4 cycle specific built chassis, and they are a bit quicker.

    Our Tony karts were pretty fast and we had lots of fun with them, I just bought a brand new Mad Croc chassis and I wanna test it out this season, but I was doing just fine with all my other Tony karts. Do you know how many drivers there are running LO206 at your local track? Here in Cali and many other states that class got real good traction for a few years now, and it continues to grow very fast, because it’s so much fun!!!!! And Cheap!!!!

    I do have 3 OTK complete karts available if you’re interested, they are very competitive and look nice, I only put half a season or less on those engines from brand new, text me if interested (858) 717-2191 FastFreddy.

    Here’s a video from where we run LO206 here in Cali, enjoy.

    Hi, Anthony! Welcome to the sport! We have raced many different classes though the years, and honestly LO206 is by far the most economical way to go, we ran yamaha’s Can and Pipe, and the LO206 is just as fast as the yamaha can motor at our local track. Extremely cheap to run, no clutch adjustment, no carburetor tuning. etc, just a little maintenance and go!!

    The engine will last you at least 3 years, but could be 5 years if maintained right. This class will really teach you how to drive, as you can’t afford to make any mistakes.

    John is right with the OTK chassis, we have about 5 of them, but honestly there are a few companies that are building LO206 purpose made chassis, with smaller axle and spindles, and they do perform better, we do have a hard time catching them, but the other karts are very competitive too, it all depends what you wanna do.

    Do you already have an engine for this kart you’re buying? or is it a complete turn key engine/kart ready to go?

    What kind of kart is it, and How old?

    Nice video Clark!

    Good and fun clean driving too, your Son is very competitive, and so are the other kids.

    Overall nice video, Thanks for posting it buddy.

     

    And Traylor I knew about the lube, just thought it was more fun the way I described it, but yeah, you’re right! It shows up on my bill every month (Lube Fee) Lol. Good stuff buddy!!!!!!!

    I love your questions, your eager and wanting to learn more and more about karting, and wanting to find out what is wrong with our sport.

    However, some of your questions you ask may not have an answer, or just may not be important enough for the big names to answer. Karting is a sport, but it’s also a business. Things do change a lot, just like everything else around you, some of your questions need to be directed to the root of the industry, not the drivers, consumers, team owners, etc. Some times we have no choice but to move on, along the way we get screwed or find benefit in new changes. Look I get it! there are lots of things I hate and love about the sport, I wish things were different too, but they’re not.

    This would be like me complaining about modern cars about electronic throttle body, instead of cable operated, or ABS brakes, or the abundance automatic transmissions rather than manual transmission/gear boxes, push start buttons rather than a regular key????

    I don’t think they make car commercials asking us if we’re ok with all those features, we just get bent over and take it. In reality Do you think all that will go back to how it used to be?

    TJ made a good point, If you stay away from karting for a few years, and then check back in, you’re gonna find a culture shock with changes, but if you stay in it you will see things better, and will understand why the changes happen.

    I hate changes too, I hate having to change cell phones, I hated back in the day when they told me I had pay extra for my new smart phone, since it had network (internet ) I didn’t really need it or want it, they just bent me over and gave it to me with Vaseline included.

    Don’t give me wrong, I am a strong fighter and refuse to give up that easily, but I honestly think you are on an uphill battle, some times you just have to pick your battles and enjoy the ride. Or some times you can win the war and lose the battle.

    Problems do exist everywhere, even in F1, MotoX, Nascrap, and all major motor sports, there are lots of people unhappy.

    That being said……. Just relax, get involved, have fun, race your kart for a season or 2, by then you will know what to do next, plus you will have plenty of info available to you, and if you still wanna re invent the wheel then hopefully by then you will have all the contact info to all the major organizers, builders, importers, responsible people for the direction the sport is going, then you can approach them, and give them a proposal.

     

    Please don’t take this the wrong way, but 1/2 the people here may not even know the answer to your questions, nor the root of the problem. Mean while, welcome to the sport, buy an X3o, KA100 for more affordability, Briggs LO206 for dirt cheap maintenance or a shifter kart, but please don’t make the same mistake a few have made, thinking you will become the next Indy car, F1, Nascrap star. Just enjoy karting and do the best you can.

     

    Now Can we put this to rest and move on? You’re welcome to ask more honest questions about how to get you started, on what class, and performance wise, no more politics.

    This is FastFreddy, hope you’re doing well buddy!

    Did you end up buying a brand new one or what?

    Hey, I’m hungry, you still owe me a Black Angus dinner, Lol.

    Anyhow, just heads up, for all potential buyers, Victor is a very straight forward guy and maintains his stuff very well, not to mention his kids are very fast and competitive, very fast kart too. Buy with confidence. FastFreddy.
