Welcome to the beginning of a great Father/son experience. After 10 years of doing what you are beginning I would have to say, love every min it goes by fast. I started Garrett at the same age, growing up at the track has molded my son into a great young man and taught him so many life lessons.
Advice, keep it fun. If your yelling at your kid, take a break. If your yelling at another Dad, take a breath remember things happen in racing. If your yelling at your wife, take her on vacation she can only go to the track so many weekends a year.
Don’t keep buying motors thinking your out powered, most likely that kid will be faster then yours in your kart. Buy track time, coaching and tuning help.
Keep it fun and he will love it forever, if you do it right racing is a great carrot to dangle to make parenting a little easier…June 11, 2014 at 7:28 pm #28801

I loved the EGT with a tuneable carb but becareful with the egt in a stockmoto pipe they are prone to crack…May 13, 2014 at 4:48 pm #27433
Table is best with gauge… Or 4×4 under middle of chassis, 2 friends on rear wheels and you jumping on nose check with tape.
Check with dealer for correct measurementMay 12, 2014 at 6:07 pm #27341
If its not the carb or fuel line it could be the coil wires. Tape the to the coil so cornering loads dont cause a shortMay 12, 2014 at 6:02 pm #27340
A whole lot of Neg Camber (edit) and a pushMay 5, 2014 at 4:46 pm #26908
^ Well said and pretty dang close if you are going to get your kid to move up any motorsports ladder.
Or you can find a small club and race to have fun for about $100 on an old kart, used tires learning on your own.
Racing is hard and is as much fun as you make it.
Enjoy it and have funMay 5, 2014 at 4:34 pm #26906
Cant go wrong there, just dont get discouraged.
LAKC has big feilds with top drivers.
So just set goals you cant meet and keep your expectations real.
Get some support to help you from one of the many teams/shops at first but most of all have fun…April 22, 2014 at 8:06 am #26084
We race Redline oil in 1 series at 32:1 all the time, you need to focus on your jetting.
Muratic acid should clean that barrel up nicely…April 21, 2014 at 9:49 pm #26049
Agreed. We run our Stockmoto at 32:1.

Practice, practice , practice.
One other thing, if the front bar is in loosen it.
Things twist by loosen and then retightening the bar it allows the chassis reset itself, so to speak.December 27, 2013 at 12:11 am #18455
Btw put on spindles not spacers, the flat part where the hubs slide on not the tapered part…December 26, 2013 at 8:47 pm #18448
It could be simple like a kingpin.
Loosen kingpin and spin with laser on, if dot moves up and down then its bent and can cause readings like you got.
So can a bent spindle
So it’s not as bad as it seems, most can be fixed.December 26, 2013 at 8:42 pm #18447
Most likely yes.
Start by shooting the lasers thru a piece of paper (math graph paper is best) placed right at the steering shaft. Line the laser dots up so you only see 1 dot, then you know your steering is straight. If you are way off you need to do some chassis tweekingDecember 25, 2013 at 4:09 pm #18396
Just take 3or 4 9volts to Daytona and you will be fine.
