    Race Kart ID

    So I'm trying to ID the "Green Monster", so I figured the best way to do that is to start a thread dedicated to it. In short: Anyone know what race kart this is?? I'm 80% sure it's an Emmick, since it says Emmick on the seat and I see some similarities with other Emmicks, but I'm not certain...

    Gaming Chitchat

    So basically I'm just curious how many people in the DYGK community are also gamers. This thread can also be used for miscellaneous gaming talk. This past year I had a pretty nice PC gifted to me from a friend, and he introduced me to "proper" gaming. Up until then I'd basically just done dinky...

    Tillotson Briggs Throttle Hookup

    So I finally got all the pieces (I think) to put my Tillotson HL-19D carburetor on the Hothead, but I can't figure out the throttle linkage. I've seen this same style throttle kit elsewhere than EC Carburetors, but I can't figure it out. There were no instructions included. So this one is...

    Yay for Briggs!!

    Great news! I contacted EC Carburetors, and they’re making more Briggs to Mikuni billet manifolds!! :bannana: They said they’re redesigning it without the angle per request, hopefully that won’t cause fitment issues. But this means there’ll be a commercially available Briggs mikuni kit!!! And it...

    WTB: Genuine 22mm Mikuni + Other Parts

    I'm in the market for a genuine Mikuni 22mm carburetor, I'm planning to make my own intake runner, but I want one of the real ones. Note that I'd be willing to buy a Chinese one in the meantime, but I'd pay a pretty low price. Other things I'm interested in: Briggs stock length ARC billet con...

    So out of a total surprise today, my church friends came over today with their race kart(it's actually the bishop and his son LOL).

    Mini Bikes And Predators: First Impressions

    So I was at a friends house today, and I got to ride their kart and minibike(two other bikes, a Doodlebug in pieces, and a Baja Warrior buried in the garage, but we didn't get to ride them).

    Vintage Kent Rollin' Thunder

    Well, I got another project! If you remember my top secret Echo leaf blower, this is essentially under the same conditions. Secret. :stir: Except I gave back Darrell the blower, since it's just too many projects, and it still needs parts and won't be very useful. So in short, I got this late...

    Cooling With A Smaller Flywheel

    Ok so I just got this really clean 3 HP flywheel from my buddy Darrell(the guy who sold me the rototiller) along with some other parts for $1. I want to put it on the Hothead for performance reasons, but I just have one inkling concern: Will the smaller flywheel move enough air to effectively...
