Also on account of your uncertainty in post #1. No one seems to know anything about them.

However, the more classic style, American made karts of the 60s, 70s, 80s and beyond are simpler and less problematic. I have mechanical disc brakes (oh how primitive!) on my Manco go karts and they work just fine—and the old design is still being made to this day.


Just my 2 cents.
I got a new Dingo from a chinese clunker and it is a dream finding parts. No more an I looking for obsure 5/8" shaft parts, 4.5" disk brakes with custom mounts and throttles for custom made steering wheels.
