KT100’s, you’d see them talked about on 4cycle.com, but it seems their historical posts are gone.
What was his reasoning behind PP’s making more power? I guess you could maybe make more peak power than some¬†reeds, but overall, at least in my experience with karting the PP’s were never as fast as reeds or rotaries. At least a second off on a sprint track with a 20lb break.
