      Going to Purchase a Kart with a Leopard Engine package. Trying to find out what the best sprockets would be for this. Also on a side note, might take the Kart to my local 1/8 mile drags strip to outrun a few things. any ideas on a setup for that, just for fun sake?

      Depends on the tightness of the course, but gearing somewhere around 74-79 mph usually works well for fast stuff, shorter for tight local courses.  On a Honda, many of us run between 15/24 and 15/27.

      Gearing for an 1/8 mile is probably just a bit taller, but you’d have to try a few ratios out to see what works best.  MG Greens or Hoosier R60A for grippy tires.
