Yeah, been riding it pretty hard. Got the whole family on it too! They all love it which is good. The tires there were on it were pretty sun rotter I guess. They started coming apart. Had to replace one and another blew yesterday so it's currently out of commission. I plan on going over to the go kart shop today and getting some new tires as long as they aren't priced too high. If they are I will just order them online.

I was wondering though. Currently the tires are 4.10/3.50-4. Could I get new wheels and tires that are 6" that have the same 3 bolt pattern to give a little more clearance? Would this affect the gearing too much cuz I would like to keep the same speed and acceleration. Or would I have to get a new sprocket and clutch?
