Ill keep the front brakes on in Tag when Im Road racing. Doesn’t matter what series or whatever. Any new chassis I buy, will always have front brakes. I finish 99% of my races and not much ever fails, BUT IF IT DOES. I want them on.
Ive lost friends and others had flight for life lift them away not knowing if they are going to make it. For me to stay in the sport of road racing. It was/is a no brainer! The xtra $1000 when you purchase it from the start is nothing if you don’t make it home.March 25, 2015 at 1:53 pm #44815
I’ve been using a Moto-GPX for years. Its fine for karting for comfort. No one has ever even looked at it during safety tech at any race I’ve entered. Don’t think it would be an issue.February 17, 2015 at 9:58 pm #42519
Depends what track you are running. I would contact the track you plan on running at. They should be able to give you a base set-up. Most sprint tracks you will need a 11T-13T drive gear.February 17, 2015 at 9:53 pm #42518

If your on a tight budget. Rotax may not be your best choice.. That great deal will cost $1000 plus for a rebuild. I own a Rotax and love it. Im just speaking from the truth.
You should look into a different class. Maybe Briggs 206 or KT 100. Karting cost money and you often have to chase down problems, parts, new tires, race fuel, cost to get to track, cost to enter race, ect. It never ends the costs!!!
If you want to stay in karting at an affordable price. Tag/Rotax class isn’t the way to go.December 6, 2014 at 7:38 am #38448
What we need to see is a dyno run on that graph above with the upgrades. That’s the one I want to see. If an older engine(2009 or newer) with upgrades is equal to the Evo. Otherwise all of our engines are toast!December 4, 2014 at 7:44 pm #38368

I just purchased an AGV Grid Helmet. Its not Snell rated. Its a DOT and ECE-2205(Euro rated) certified helmet. Can anyone let me know if I can use this helmet in WKA? CES will let me use it. Its a new helmet.

James your wrong. Jet Tech is John. MaxJet has been out of business and causing these same questions for a couple years now. People sell Maxjet units on ebay and people have no way of turning them on without locking the code. They are nothing but a paper weight now
I would contact these guys and see if they can help you. It looks like they are still trying to sell them. Not sure how without locking code. If you find out please let me know. I have one sitting in the tool box as i wont try and scam a fellow racer into paper weight….April 12, 2014 at 6:21 am #25492
Thats great info Robert.
But every series may have there own take on the rules. Club racing 99% of the time wont require you to have all the updates.
Plus most club series will say they follow Rotax rules. But the true fact is at club level they want entries and wont be anal cause you have an older cylinder and other non updated parts.
Tony has it right check with your local track your racing at and see what they say.April 3, 2014 at 5:28 pm #25011
2009 new style clutch came out. 2009 and newer Rotax engines will have all the upgrades.April 2, 2014 at 7:39 am #24911
The person shipping its his fault in my opinion. I order lots of parts and sell lots of parts. About 50% of the time I recieve packages. I see a person that spent 30 seconds to pack and another minute to secure with tape. The box is barely in one piece cause of shipper not taking an extra 5 minutes to tape the box up.
In the case of front brake parts, heavy with sharp edges to break open easily. You tape the shit out of the box so it doesnt open, very simple. Problem is people are do damn lazy to do the right thing!!!
Its not the post office fault the idiot doesnt package it well for shipping!March 31, 2014 at 6:03 pm #24818
I have everything you need from a 2008 Italkart Supersonik V. Not sure if this would work for you. They are not floating disc like you want.

Is your 2013 spec radiator used?March 14, 2014 at 6:00 am #23801
Actual cost from Comet Kart Shop for conversion kit is $529. You would have to ask your local Rotax service center for a price to install. Here is link to kit from Comet.March 13, 2014 at 1:47 pm #23776
If you have an old Rotax engine with zero upgrades. Its not worth it to upgrade in my opinion.
Old black coil change to new style green coil. $450.00
Clutch conversion kit with balance gears ect. $500
2009 or newer cylinder $600-700
New style air box around $150-175
With a new cylinder comes the need/cost of a new piston kit $150. Plus the cost of dealer/service center for labor. Clutch being a newbie done by service center. Coil and airbox you could change out.
Rebuilds are based on hours of use on engine. Rotax Top end about every 20-25 hours and bottom rebuild 40-50 hours of use.March 10, 2014 at 10:30 am #23554
Im getting a chassis shipped from Orlando Kart Center to Northern Illinois for $230. Im using Tag Shipping Solutions. It helps to go business to business. Also helps to have a chassis factory box. Most shipping companies want a pallet strapped to chassis box for fork lift. Remember to put not stackable. So they dont stack another pallet on top of chassis box.March 7, 2014 at 8:44 am #23420
Sent you an email for Ven 05 front brakes. Need complete set-up.February 26, 2014 at 2:17 pm #22775February 11, 2014 at 5:36 am #21720
IMO if this race was to ever happen. It needs to be in the months of Nov-March. It steps on to many other series that are going on in the month of July or summer months in general. Attendance still is low in most series. If they loose 25 guys/ 50 entries to a bigger race. That would sink a lot of road race series that are hanging on by a thread right now.
As much of a good thing it could be. Its effect on your local series could be in total jeopardy.
An example of this is CES Grattan was scheduled the same day as this race I believe. We loose 50 entries. We wont have road racing in the midwest!February 2, 2014 at 5:10 pm #20835
Ill take piston 53.98 and a few other parts. Sent an email.
JeffFebruary 1, 2014 at 4:32 pm #20798
A New 2010 motor would never come with old air box/clutch/coil. Sounds like you have an older engine that was updated with a 2010 cylinder after a complete rebuild with 15 hours of use. Just my honest opinion. A Rotax dealer or kart shop would never sell an engine like that.January 28, 2014 at 5:45 am #20446
Sounds like you should of asked a bunch of these questions before you purchased this engine. IMO your cylinder will not be a 2009 or newer based on all the other changes needed.
If your club racing chances are you wont need to make all these changes for club racing. If you plan on doing more than club racing you will need the updates. Check your local track rules on Rotax.
By the time you do all this to this engine it will be close to 2K with parts and labor.
A cylinder is close to $700, clutch kit $500, airbox around $70, new piston for new cylinder $150, plus all the gaskets, bearings and other parts needed to complete with seal and labor.
I would sell engine and get a newer engine. What ever you decide to do, Rotax is still a better investment than the other Tag engines.January 19, 2014 at 1:26 pm #19854
