    Thank you for your input, very good info.

    I was just curious if anything else would work, like full synthetic Mobil 1 oil, but now I see the reason why the manufacturer only recommends Amsoil, and the reason why.

    Thank you for your help, buddy.

    William.

    Did you ever decide what kart and engine package you’re gonna go with? Or not yet?

    Wow! I thought everybody was nice enough to answer your question, and shared why and how it could affect the equipment, I honestly didn’t see anybody showing off. I thought they, we all try to help here, and along the way we do share stories.

    I thought their input was pretty good and spot on.

    William, you are correct.

    Your instructor wants you to utilize your body weight to the desired area you want the kart to bite, for your personal advantage, this doesn’t mean you have to slide side to side, just squeeze your body into a corner of the seat. Tilting your head and neck will also help.

    William, I’m a certified technician. Is this corolla equipped with automatic transmission, or manual ( stick shift )

    That little car is capable of doing that every now and then, the only issue is that if you do it very very often that little transmission will give out, even if the trailer is a small one, I still wouldn’t recommend it for too long.

    This may be an ok option for the time being, but eventually you will need a bigger pick up truck, van, or a combination of truck/van and enclosed trailer. My 2 cents. FastFreddy.

    Man! I wish my kart would hook up like that! I have the same kart, but I’m 6.1″ and 210 lbs and my legs are shorter than my upper body, I’ve tried everything, seat position, high/low, closer to the axle, further from the axle, more tilted, etc, Higher air pressure on tires, you name it.

    Rob looks really confy on that seat, and his arms are holding the steering wheel real nicely, looking really good all the way around. Is he closer to the front? or just my view? Please throw me a bone, so I can adjust mine better.

    The older I get, the slower I am. At this point I’m just gonna change my name from FastFreddy to Slow old fart Freddy. Lol

    Good!

    Hope everything goes well.

    I am not affiliated with him in any way, I just happened to see his ad. Good luck to you.

    There’s a guy selling one here, at the forum, I’m sure it can be shipped for less than $150 to $200 bucks. Just a thought

    2015 Razor Valor with RKS LO206, $1500 OBO

    Almost any top name chassis will do, but I would buy OTK (Tony Kart)

    as they are easier to tune, and extremely competitive right out of the box, but I wouldn’t buy a Rotax engine package, almost all clubs I know are getting away from that engine. Most big events and classes do run X30 Tag.

    Something to consider is your body size, how tall and heavy you are, before you buy a kart you may regret. A little more info about yourself would help us narrow it down.

    Welcome to the sport! You’ll have a blast!

    That makes sense.

    Check all the welds under the seat, cross bars, front and rear cross member, also check the ties welded between the frame rails at the engine side.You’d be surprised, even a small hairline fracture will do that.

    May also be a good idea to put it on the table after you inspect for cracks.

    Rob, not questioning your experience or lack of driving skills on other types of engine packages. But there is a difference with the 4 cycle thing, and it does take a while to get caught up with the fast guys, to the point it makes you question the chassis, driver, engine, carb, etc.

    Did you just start 4 cycles?

    Were you already fast with this kart/engine package at some point, and just recently started noticing you are slower now?

    Please don’t be offended, but this will help narrow it down.

    I’m still trying to figure it out myself, as this driving style is a bit more sensitive, and requires to minimize turning effort.

     

    If you were already fast running with the front guys, and recently you’re losing speed, then yes, you may have an issue there, and you can ignore my questions. Hope this helps.

    Jim

    I asked a good friend we race with, and he said the rear ones are 210’s

    Hope that helps.

    Jim, I’m not sure about the size in mm, but these are the standard wheels used on all full size Tag Karts, shifter karts, 100cc’s and 125 cc’s. They are not the little narrow ones for juniors, or L0206, these are the big ones

    The 2 rear ones measure about 8″ from outside lip to outside lip. Let me know.

    Yup

    It’s a 2009 CRG New Age, Cadet kart. Time to clean it up, bring it up to safety and put it to a good use. I don’t know who runs that engine anymore, but it may be a blast for a little kid to use at an open practice track day.

    Yeah, there’s a homologation tag at the rear cross member bar behind the seat, it should tell you the year and model.

    By the description on the pictures looks to be a mid 2004 to 2008 , and it is a Cadet Kart ( Junior ) And the engine I just can’t tell if it’s a Rotax, or a Gazele.

    A good cleaning, hoping that the hydraulic brake system works, or a good rebuilding of the brakes, and hoping the engine runs flowlessly may be worth anywhere from $1,000 to $1,500 for the right buyer (but nobody runs that engine anymore) And for a quick sale may go for $800 to $900

    Or you might be able to part it out, but I’m not sure what your plans are, just trying to answer your question. Anyhow hope this helps.

    Isn’t the RY30 ( Birel ART ) same as the Ricciardo Kart?

    If so, I do have two of them available.

    PM me if interested, I can ship for real cheap.

    Make an offer and take them all, or partially.

    You may wanna try Fastenal, I’ve used them many times with great success.

    All you have to do is pallet it, make a crate around it, wrap it, then drop it off at any of their stores, and then they’ll ship it anywhere in the US.

    Just find out the nearest Fastenal near your house, and the nearest Fastenal to the destination the kart is going to, call them and they’ll help you with the paperwork. Will probably cut the shipping costs in half, depending where it’s going to. Anyhow, my 2 cents, hope this helps. FastFreddy.

    This guy in Cali makes real nice graphics, he made me a set of Ricciardo Kart

    May be worth checking him out, he may be able to make you an Arrow kart set

    His price was very affordable.

    You may also contact Comet Kart Sales, they carry Arrow kart stuff, even if it’s not listed, they may be able to get it for you. Good luck. FastFreddy.

    Tadas. It is a full set (2 fronts, 2 rears )

    Sorry, at the moment I would like to sell the whole set, not partial.

    Thank you.

    Any pictures? Or What does it say on the tag?

    Do the side pod nerf bars come off the side straight and paralel to each other, or one straight at the back and the front one on an angle towards the front?
