A Douglas bead lock screw works great.

Hitchiker kart stand has been sold.
The new large Tool boxes are still available.February 26, 2016 at 6:44 am #62005
I’ve got most every piece of bodywork known to karting, and there have been some very light and flimsy plastic as well as some pretty beefy pieces in past years, but most of the newer karts have pretty lightweight plastic.
KarTechna, Birel (Riccardio) and TonyKart (FA/Kosmic) bodywork is probably the lightest (in that order), but CRG, Praga, TopKart, ItalKart (& more) are very, very close, I think it’s more about looks and durability than anything else at this point, unless you’re looking for a few ounces.
Post the brand of bodywork you currently have and what you’re looking at, and I’ll weigh them both.February 26, 2016 at 6:19 am #62003
“For those that don’t know, a blue flag is shown to slower drivers to indicate them to move off the racing line for faster drivers to overtake”
IMHO, if this is why you would want to use the blue flag – don’t use it.
A slower driver should always stay on his line, but beware of faster drivers approaching, and allow those faster drivers to pass cleanly without putting up a fight. That driver should point the direction (off the racing line) they would like to be passed on.
To me, the only time a driver should move “off line” is when there’s a mechanical problem and he’s waiving his hand like his life depended on it ASAP.

I’m in SoCal, but if you ever get down this way, I’ve got a few options for you.
I’ve got a homemade double stand that works fine, but ugly as heck – $50
A very nice Hitchhiker triple, that I can give you just the double pieces – $400. ($450 for all three pieces)
I also have a beautiful MDG by Lampe triple stand if you know anyone that can use a triple.
Email me for pictures.

Both engines sold – thank you EKN many times over.December 23, 2015 at 8:43 pm #58420
These RR master cylinders are very good. We’ve used them as factory replacement MC’s for years. The caliper you showed is good as well.
We keep them in stock at all times. Let me know if you have any questions.

One sold – thanks EKN
One left – will include shippingDecember 11, 2015 at 9:42 pm #57996
If there’s interest, I’m sure they would do it.
Ask around with the other junior drivers and let F100 know. I think it’s a good idea

I have one pair of new CRG Cadet spindles left.
I also still have the CRG Cadet bodywork – I’m dropping the price to $100 for the complete set. (nose/panel/pods)
Please give me a shout!

We just finished a few more remote starter dolly kits for you that have the Burris or Coleman mini kart starters.
I know it’s winter, but if you want to be ready for next spring, send me a text and let me send you one of these great remote starter kits.

IMHO, use brake clean on one thing – the brakes.
Cleaning your kart is very important. Clean enough to eat off is best. While you’re at it, you can check for loose nuts, cracks in the frame and worn parts.
We use a very light spray of WD40 on most everything metallic. Not the brakes. Never on plastic ie tank/bodywork/airbox. A little thicker WD around the chain and sprocket area.
Wipe clean, starting at the front of the kart (less dirty) and work your way back.
Spray orange Zep (you can get at any Home Depot) on everything plastic. Diluted 50% w/water.
For a finishing touch, get Motul spray shine and go. This makes the plastic look great (smells great,too)
Never let the cleaning go – you’ll regret it – promise! A clean kart is a happy kart.

I agree with John. Invest in a MyChron4 2T and get both sensors.
The MyChron5 will be out the first of the year, but don’t worry about investing in the M4. They will hold their value for many years to come.
I hope this helps

I understand F100 Karters had over 80 drivers on Labor Day. Any idea how many will be there at CakSpeed Saturday?
Time to dust off the KT’s and HPV engines.
See you there!October 5, 2015 at 10:21 pm #55166
Thanks for the shout out. I’m glad you like it.

Give EMPIRE karting in Redlands, California a call. They have been a TopKart dealer for many years and race the TopKart Cadet very successfully here in SoCal.
Anyone there should be able to help.

I knew a guy that quit karting because he couldn’t get any of his 3 hpv engines to run correctly after having them all professionally rebuilt.
Even though he has never come back to karting, he did find the problem. He had put a rag in the pipe opening to keep anything from going in.
All three engine just “ran like crap”.
Try a different pipe before you give up.

The $100 gets you the frame and some (most) front/rear bumper bars.
I’m sure I can find a pair of spindles and a steering shaft that would be compatible. Around $50
