    You can not predict what A kart is going to do when things go bad On A track, Let alone A dirty, crowded street.

    Your driving On the street is terrible and A shifter motor can not be tuned in this manner. If you cant afford the $55 now skip the extra large fry for A week or two. Then you can. Your life is more important then the 55 you saved. A day having problems at the track teaches you way more then A good day at the track(or weeks in A hospital bed).

    Have A good day.

    NOT all fire extinguishers are the same. Make sure you get the properly rated style for combustible liquids and oils. Type B.

    Type A will be worthless in A pit fire or on A person that is on fire from gas/oil spill!! Be weary of advice given saying there all the same. A screw driver is all that’s needed to do something, but A flat head is worthless on A Phillips…..

    Yes the consumer pays for it in the end. Being high profile and in front is A return on investment. Same as any other commerce. Wallmart,lowes, local stores sponsor things to get A return. If they showed up in A pinto and ran top5 in A race wearing dirty ol cloths, you would think twice. If they  won it would be A different story. But making an impression is also just as good as winning…..

    It is done often, just need A motor mount. Most will bypass the transmission for more power and use A regular 4cycle clutch on A jack shaft. Since you don’t shift on ovals. the 450s have some really trick bypass setups. If this is for A UAS setup, I think its A must for the HP free up. But we don’t have A UAS track close to confirm.

    Thanks guys. The PJ series is just what I had to work with. May just have to change it over. I’m pretty good with carb floats, I grew up rebuilding friends motorcycle carbs, holley, quadrajets, yadda yadda. The pick up line is new and long. I’m just leaning to the carb itself. Your the second person that has mentioned the PJ just isn’t friendly to road racing. The day of the race we tried 2 different pump line routes and neither worked, deltro and single round system. I bought A PMW at A swap meet over the winter to give A try. I’m really surprised that road racing is not more “chatted about ” o this forum. It is A lot of fun. I only got 7-8 laps in last year and still had A blast.

    First You need to fix your name. Full names only no short screen names.

    Tag class is A class for advanced racers, ignite class racing will teach you faster then any videos will. So your ahead of the game.  To each there own.

    Ever notice the smell of starter fluid on the grids has become stronger and stronger over the yrs. This is the leading cause of the source. Not the only reason mind you, but…

    The blue flag is used to warn you of A faster coming racer, It is NOT to tell you to move out of the way. You hold your line at all times until being passed. You can point what side you want them to pass on but you still hold to as close A line as you can. A faster racer coming up on you has already been studying the lines your taking and shouldn’t have to worry “what if he goes wide”. It should be A natural and easy pass. Not over complicating it by any rouge moves. Just How I think it should be anyway.

    I am truly sorry for how the post sounded, What I should have said/ worded   is that I have not personally called but I have used the online form for contact with questions and never got A response.  I did not mean for it to sound as I was Saying that you never respond to anyone, just to me.

    I could see Just A Part being blamed for A whole product as A whole, But I like to tinker with stuff. Its A passion. I may even buy the parts to do the project then A yr from then, buy the complete kit. I’ve done that A time or two. Anyway keep us informed.

    Something like this ,

    http://www.vxb.com/CSK8-One-way-Sprag-Freewheel-Backstop-Clutch-p/Kit8176.htm?gclid=CjwKEAiAuea1BRCbn-2n7PbLgEMSJAABQvTTyKSmzkiruwrFvxG8bYxhWhKGmQAnlVxqovwjhi58sRoCQrrw_wcB

    Would get it started. Just have to find one that will handle 13,000 RPMS!

    I would imagine Chris makes his own!? I’ve wanted to make one also, Or just buy  the parts from Hegar website, But his contact info doesn’t get answered. So I am assuming he doesn’t sell the individual parts?? If you Do Chris, how do I get ahold of you?

    They race them around here. They truly are an “open” tech type class of karting that is growing fast.  The local track here went to A hard tire right rear  and still need new tires every 3 races. better then 1 race, I guess.

    Motor wise its A toss up. the CR500 is FASTER on the bigger tracks with lots of maintenance.$2-$3000

    The 450 less so but when they go bang, they tear themselves up. Motor run $4,500-$11,000 from Joe Gibbs.

    Per yr about the same $$$$ as A fast TAG.

    I can not tell in the pictures, but it almost sounds like you have the feed pump feeding the pump around line, and the pick up pump sucking the feed line. Or both pumps are feeding the carb and none are pulling the fuel out of the carb.

     

    Oh I just seen the other comment you had. This kart is not A street toy, They don’t run great there because there not designed for it. Keep it off the street.

    In WKA and KART helmet cameras are allowed.

    I believe they are not allowed in WKA sanctioned events. I could be wrong. Its good to get rid of them off the helmets. Yes the head is the best shock absorbing, vibration. But its not safe. Do you “NEED” it on A helmet for data research, nope. Front fairing with vibration is fine. On you fuel tank if you want to see your wheels pointing direction, don’t need to see straight ahead, curbs and tires is most important.

    In karting you will not have enough time to be looking at you tach that often. If you do you , you have bigger problems then just knowing your laptimes. Having something like that puts yourself and others on the track around you at risk In my opinion. Once you get on track on A sprint course with others around you, you wont need A function like that. Have fun

    Has anyone taken pictures of the kit parts on the sharkshifter kit? Have you got the instructions scanned pdf form? I actually use my shifter for track days and cardio workout while having fun. I could build one pretty easy using A one-way clutch bearing. I am wanting to know and see how they did there’s. Is it A chain driven to there one-way? Do they have A bearing mounted in there cover? They will not answer any of these questions simply because they want to sell the kit only and not parts. Witch I don’t blame them. Thanks if anyone could help.

    Yes Gary, the texture of the track changes in the corner from two different rino patch areas. Ive considered this option before and does make the most sense.

    Also It does “grab” about the time Im unwinding the wheel from mid corner.

    Ric, It never has A push. It turns Tight,this condition is when its close to A “LOCKDOWN” condition.  Ever gone through A set of corners ,the kart was handling so well but didn’t slide front or rear and was slow? That’s tight.

    not as fancy, its been the American mainstay caliper for yrs. I’ve never seen anyone use it on TAGs or shifters but I couldn’t see that being much of A problem as long as your not riding the brakes every corner.
