    Here’s how it goes. All of You Enduro Go-Kart Racing enthusiast like to say OMG the trees and OMG that track looks dangerous. Lake Afton is the longest running event in all of Karting to my knowledge. Yes some racers have got hurt there but how many of You have raced at Daytona? Check out the fatality rate there. Back in the 70’s and 80’s there would be over 50 racers in just one class. At least 25 C-Opens (the big boys) that would go over 150 MPH on hard tires and crappy brakes. The point I’m trying to make if You do not want to race on a great track then don’t, but don’t sound like a whiner with lame excuses. Show what You have and come to a great time at a great place. I don’t want to sound rude but Lake Afton is My favorite track next to Oak Hill Texas (R.I.P.)

    Front brakes are always a good thing to have on a enduro kart. Some org.s require 2 master cylinders on separate calipers,I.E.  Front and Back. allot of the Tags and Yamaha Sit Ups use only the rear brakes with much success. IMO Your much better and safer with rear and front both. At least when You run something faster then a 4 stroke. Just be sure to check Your rule book and follow it all the way.

    You need the 2014 WKA Rule Book for the exact specs. But if Your Kart will pass pre race tech there should be a class You can run in. Go to the WKA web page for more info. Hope to see You there. It’s a great time.

    The easiest way is if You have a lathe or a big drill press is to get a head holding fixture that screws in the spark plug hole and the spin the head and clean it with scotch bright and carb spray. You clean it and give it a good polishing at the same time. If You don’t have a way to spin it then use carb spray and scotch bright. And wear eye protection, Carb spray burns if it gets in Your eyes.

    He loved that Hartman Kart. It’s amazing the miles on that marvelous old Go-Kart and no breaks or cracks in the frame. The only thing that ever broke were the tabs that held in the seat and front porch. And that Kart cost over $3,000.00 new back in the late 70’s.And that was for a roller.

    My first motor was a Mc-10 I got for X-Mas when I was 13. When I was told it was obsolete and non competitive it broke My heart but it was still fast and fun and I wish I still had it. It’s worth a bit more then the $35.00 My Dad paid for it. So I saved My paper route money for 3 or 4 months and got a Mc-91A. As for a new Karter. If Your Enduro racing either a B&S Animal or any good Piston Valve motor is easy to get Your feet wet with then decide for yourself what Your goals and aspirations are. This is all My opinion and You know what’s said about them. Happy Karting.
