Yes I had the spacer made:
When I was fitting the TC to the 212 I wrote down two pages of notes. I wanted a better fit with the best performance. Actually the motor shaft on the 212 is 1" inch short. The outer drive clutch has about 3/8 of and inch of motor shaft to ride on and that should be more, that has been questioned 0n past forum post here. The clutch drive bolt in the kit is m8 x 1.25 x 1 3/4 long is to short, needs to be 2 1/4 long with a 1" thread, takes a 13mm wrench.

Thanks for the Question*************** armand

OK: Kart people;
With the motor spotted with the chain drive. I marked for motor mount holes with 2" inch slots for 5/16 bolts, slots are for making adjustments for chain & sprocket wear. The seat is a universal with lots of holes putting on a slide adjustment bar for the Grand Son, the seat is a little heavy but I'm getting a seat with suspension together.

Safety talk: using tools you need ( PPG ) = personal protection gear, ear plugs, welding gloves, face shield, goggles, safety glasses, dust mask, welding helmet with flip up lens make for a great grinding shield, two in one. PPG

What about the rest of the kart?? well the frame is going to the paint department??$$ me, The color will either be cobalt blue metallic or Corvette red, what do you think??

Since it's called the Road Runner Kart, I say Cobalt Blue Metallic!
