      What’s your front track width (outside of tire to outside of tire). I’ve got an 06 kart and I set the rear to 55″ with spacers and the front is 44″ is that normal or is the front too narrow on this older kart? What is a CRG road rebel?

      Karts that run 55 rear are typically closer to 46-47″. Older margays for example ran around 53 1/2 rear and would run 44 in the front.

      I put on some offset wheels I had and was able to get 45-1/2″ do you think that would be enough for a 55″ rear?

      Yes. I don’t think their is a direct relationship between front and rear track. I think it is more related to how wide the kingpin width is on the kart. Most newer karts are somewhere around 26″ and as I said they are around 47. Karts closer go 24″ are closer to 44″
