resurrecting an old thread. I bought some Molecule for my suit duties. Heavy soiled oil/grease from a few races and me doing much of my own wrenching.
I sprayed and drenched the spray on the suit. The used the detergent, also used some dawn dish soap as well as a couple packets of clothing soap, a couple packets of dishwashing detergent (I have read that this can work well with these applications since it is made to cut into greasy dishes) and a little stain cleaner.
Let soak for around an hour, then put on heavy cycle. Did a really good job of getting the whites clean and bright (will never get a white suit again). It didn’t get everything out, but I was actually fairly surprised it did as well as it did. Problem is, I used more than half the spray bottle and about 1/3-1/2 of the detergent part of it, ALONG with all the other stuff I through in there. I will have to figure out another way, thats too much money in Molecule product and as much as I’d like to support a specialty company, it is just to much, compared to what I hope I can accomplish with household items.
I can’t find any “wayne industries green” as talked about above, but I do have a TON of simple green. Simple Green is kind of odd stuff though, and probably not good to mix with traditional “detergents”. So perhaps the Dawn, Plus stain remover, plus normal detergent, plus dishwashing detergent might work?
Some say to do dry cleaning, but talking to some guys at the track, they say to make sure you get a good one, as a bad dry cleaner wont get it clean and it will make the stains more permanent. So I am a little leary there.August 16, 2017 at 3:16 pm #84910
I have always been a big fan of using a clear paint protection on my vehicles. I kind of got to wondering if that might actually work well with this type of application? (the install is much different as you put it on wet)
Anyone ever try this?July 26, 2017 at 3:00 pm #84079
I bought a harbor frieght hoist that can be bolted to something (in my case the ceiling in the garage) and it has something like a 500 lb limit. I secured it to the ceiling and lift it above my car. I do attach a couple tie downs to the corners, in case it fails for some weird reason it wont fall on my wife doing laundry or my car. The karts are only about 160-180lbsJuly 26, 2017 at 2:12 pm #84078
Bump for an honest seller. Everything I have bought from Frank has been spot on and good pricing!! He keeps his stuff very well maintained!July 26, 2017 at 2:06 pm #84077
I use a clear tape made by Frost King for taping windows during the winter. Pretty inexensive and can be found in a hardware store or Home Depot.
Interesting, how does it compare to other options out there? (thickness, pliability, residue, etc)April 9, 2017 at 7:24 pm #80299

for the KPV is there a “standard” setting for these needles (at a certain temp and elevation) or is every motor a little different and you just have to play with it to get it perfect?
Sorry for the dumb questions.

OK, was able to try a few out. The OTK4 is too small, especially at the hip area. I got in a Large T11T Tillett and it felt really good. Also tried an X-seat (which appears to be the same as an IPK or IMAF seat) in size 4, and it felt good, just a little more snug. I ended up purchasing a Tillett T11T LARGE from Stu at MDG Karting. I may have gotten the X-seat instead but it sounds like Tony Kart may have worked with Tillett on the T11T (or the other way around) and also my brother has the exact seat and chassis, so we want out equip as close to the same as possible, and adding a different seat just adds one more variable.
Which means I have been running an XL with padding this whole time, when I probably should have been in a Large. Hopefully this shaves 2 seconds off my lap times 😉September 12, 2016 at 2:48 pm #71600
Just noticed that my high needle was almost 1/4 turn out and low was about 2 1/4. I guess I need to close it to 1/8 or less and run it.September 8, 2016 at 2:25 pm #71445
The bottom line is that motor probaby needs to go into a shop. A worn ring, piston, cylinder or all of the above. Assuming you have the same type plug in each engine. You try a new plug, properly gapped, and see if that helps.
Tony, thanks for the quick reply. Problem is that it has done this since I had a new top end done. So thats why I was thinking maybe it might be something else, carb? Plug? etc…
It very well could be that it wasn’t rebuilt properly, which I hope is not the case, since it has done this since the rebuild and since it is my back up motor, that rebuild was done over a year ago, and probably hard to take it back to the builder and say he did it wrong. I did see him at the last race and asked him about it and he attributed it to my newbie buddy not driving it hard, but as I look back at it, I realize it has been this way with me driving as well, but it was so long ago, I just forgot.September 6, 2016 at 9:16 am #71327
Thanks for the help guys, I go try on a size 4 OTK this week.August 31, 2016 at 2:57 pm #71144

Got to love seeing that someone was on the Forum 2 days ago, yet they can’t reply to questions on their own classified thread or answer emails sent to the address they listed. Just say the damn stuff is sold and be done with it.
So buyer beware, if you are interested in any of these items, you may get lucky and hear back from the guy trying to sell the items, but the chances don’t look good. I always like sending money to someone that doesn’t reply.August 29, 2016 at 8:55 pm #71059
