EKN Christmas List – Karting Special: Part 3
Final days to shop for your karting family and friends
Happy Holidays from the eKartingNews.com staff. The month of December is considered the ‘off-season’ for the sport with little racing taking place across North America. It gives racers, teams, and shops a chance to catch-up and prepared for the upcoming season. It also means Christmas time. EKN is collecting a number of products and services available from the number of partners and advertisers to help find that perfect gift for the kart racer in your family. Here is a link to the Part 1 and Part 2 of our Christmas List
Franklin Motorsports: Driveline Tire Tote
Karting is all about tires. You can’t race without them. Most racers either transport them in the standard box that can take up more space then needed, or they are thrown around trailer or garage making it look like a bomb went off. That’s where the Driveline Tire Tote comes in. From Franklin Motorsports, the Tire Tote helps keep your sets of tires together in a simple and stylish fashion, helping to save space and make your karting area look more organized. The Tire Tote is great for travel, adjusts for different tire sizes, and comes with an ID tag on the handle. Head over to FranklinKart.com to order yours today, and be sure to search the wide range of products available from the Milwaukee, Wisconsin operation.
Honda Racing / HPD: Kid Kart Engine
The name Honda is synonymous with motorsports. What better way to help begin your child’s dream of racing the Indianapolis 500 then with a Honda powerplant for his first kart. The Honda GXH50 engine is among the newest powerplants for Kid Kart racing. The HPD engine is focused on lowering operating costs while bringing the traditional Honda reliability and quality to Kid Karting, coming with a factory seal to eliminate ‘blueprinting’ and a rules package designed to maintain the integrity of the program.

Comet Kart Sales: Seat Saver Kit
The lifespan of your seat depends on the way you mount it. Making sure the seat is above the bottom of the frame rails is important to the longevity of the seat, but also the way you mount to the seat struts. Comet Kart Sales has developed the perfect solution for club racers who keep their seat in the same position session after session, weekend after weekend. The Seat Saver Kit helps to prevent the seat holes from enlarging through wear and tear of racing while making your seat useless. The kit helps to reinforce the fiberglass on your seat at the top mounts with two conical-shaped aluminum washers and two flat aluminum washers with multiple holes for alignment with almost any kart and seat strut shape – which fits M8 or 5/16” bolts.
