    I got the seat placement dialed in by someone that is very familiar with setting them up. He just didn’t have time to set up the front track and I was just looking for a hard copy of the baseline setup so I know where to go when I adjust certain things.

    Just as Robert mentioned, start with KPV/HPV100 motors.  The person he is referring you to is Stu Hayner.  He helps run the F100 series.  It is great fun for you to get started and Stu is passionate about helping people learn and get started.  We run at Grange (near victorville) and Adams (riverside) and Apex (Perris).  The guys are all very friendly and willing to help.  You might even want to come out to one of the races before you dive in head first, but I guarantee you will have a blast.  I bought a Leopard as my first kart motor and thought I was gonna race that level, in reality the F100 series is much more suited for what we want to do.  There are different classes, so you will race against guys that are your level and not feel overwhelmed.

     

    here is more info about the next race and series.

    Go to kartdavid.com and have them make a crg kit for your body work. Have done this and it turns out great.

    Thanks Pete for airing your laundry out on EKN. I have not received the insurance check from UPS yet as I told you. I also had decided to find another engine and put it in top shape. (I don’t know where you are getting your pricing but it boggles the mind that a K9B is worth $2500.00. Did you pay that much for a used KZ?) I am at the point now where I think you should sue me. If I have to watch you drag this through the mud, I’m all for it. I have no control over how UPS handles the claim. Hopefully the check comes soon. But in the meantime I suggest that you get some hard evidence together that your K9B is worth 2K+. You’re probably right, you should have found a reputable re-builder. A customer of mine in West Chester physically searched the address with no luck. I would apologize but I did nothing wrong. I shipped your engine and it was lost by the shipper. I understand I am legally responsible. We may have to let that play out. tdb/GFK

     

    wow, really?

     

    I have no idea what motor that is, so I did a quick search.  First one I found, rebuilt for $3,400!!!!  Here is the link.  Maybe $2,500 sounds pretty good.

    FYI:  this is NOT a MY09.  In the title it says non-MY09.  Getting a lot of emails with people thinking this is a My09.  if it were a MY09, it would have been sold many days ago.  I am not sure how to make it more clear regarding the model year.

    Another great deal by Robert. Good to see some KPV packages out there.

    Great deal. Someone from SoCalif needs to buy this and race the F100 series. I bought this same chassis with a leopard for $1000 more, only to ditch the leopard and spend another $800+ on a KPV to race.

    Gregg,

     

    Hopefully you find something.  I just got a custom kit from kartdavid.  The new Margay 2013 kit and body work look sooooo much better I almost wish I would have waited.  I am now trying to just get some stickers of the actual margay cat to throw on mine so people just stop asking what kind of kart it is.  Sounds like Margay isn’t getting them in until beginning of November.

     

    good luck

    I use a trailer just like the harbor freight, but a different brand.  It is black and I have plywood on top (didn’t paint it black, since it is waaaay too hot).  I fold it up when I am done on my own and store it on the side of my home (since I actually like the park my cars in the garage).

     

    Tires hang over a tiny bit, but it is fine.  It only weighs like 250#, so you barely notice it is there.  I would like to somehow get a hitch mouted to my M3 (hidden) but it is supposed to be a pretty tricky install, so I steal my wifes Pilot for the day.

    Is it actually as easy to use as the videos show? So just this and a bead breaker is all one needs?

    thanks for all the replies guys.  I sent Margay an email and they sent me back a detailed email on how to set it up.  I was also put in contact (by someone on this board) with someone who lives in my area and has had a lot of success running a Margay and knows how to get it dialed in.
