There is not such a dumb question, only the question that never gets asked is dumb. lol
The big question is: Are you gonna be racing this kart at a national level? Club level, or just the weekend warrior and an occasional small club race?
Most guys used to convert their shifter karts from 125cc to 125cc TAG karts, by removing front brakes, spindles, brake bias, shifter levers, etc. Yes it is doable, as the chassis were built stiffer to endure the max torques and bangs from the 125cc’s
But once again, the big question is: What are you planning to do with the kart?
Another thought would be if you don’t have a complete engine package, it could get pretty pricey by the time you’re done piecing it together, rather than just buying a complete TAG package for a decent price?
thanks for your response. At this point a club race would be the most I would do. I don’t think I’m even ready to do that yet because I’m a rookie and before I enter , even to a small club race, would like to get more practice hours on my belt, not only for me, also to be safe around others.
The reason I’m looking for a chassis is that I do have two complete leopards and one complete Rotax package, and my top kart chassis is all worn out on the bottom (I bought it for a really low price, and at that moment, I didn’t know if I would like karting or not), I was told that it is ok for practicing, but replace the chassis as you as I can.
I like Birel, but Tony kart/Kosmik (OTK) seems to be taking over the market and it makes it easier to get parts, even used ones..
Thanks again. On what part of CA are you located?.
Thanks for the response!
I wish you twice as much of whatever you wish for me. : )
