This is a 10 tooth #35 Noram arena. I had to cut the crank down to get it to sit closer to the engine, but they exist if youíre willing to drop $160 for a clutch.

Welcome. I got dragged by one of my karts, and it tore my feet up so bad that I missed 6 weeks of work. If one ever takes off again, I’m just going to let it go. It’s not worth it.
