Default Monster Tyrod IV.

Do any of you guys know about this kart? anyone have it?

i have mine and i find it hard to find parts for it. i'd like to do a few upgrades to it, but the hubs are really weird among other things.

I know that they're hard to find parts for, but sure are fun!! My buddy gave his away for $20 out of frustration from not being able to find interchangeable parts.

These have less than 1" axle, right? Aside from the weird hub mounting, I assume the axle bearing hangers are standard 2 or 3 hole?

You would probably have to replace the whole rear end: axle, bearings, hubs, wheels, spacers, brake disc/hub, sprocket/hub, etc. to move to a 1" axle and have some more options like bigger tires and so forth.
If you work on the motor and gearing, that thing will hum!!

Nah, just Chinese. Hubs bolt to the end of the axle somehow, nothing aftermarket bolts right up, etc. He has pics in one of his threads.

I think you mean hex or allen bolts. redsox985 meant hex shaped AXLE as opposed to round.

Don't get me wrong, they're as fun as all-get-out with the hand controls and all, but, aside from motor upgrades and tires, you've pretty much got what you've got.
