If it will work to widen and stretch the frame all depends on you, your tools, and your abilities. A 440cc sled engine takes up a bit of space, so your seating arrangement will need to be far enough...

Order online through harbor freight, I've got two arriving tomorrow. They are coming out of U.S. reserves so you still aren't funding China.

They are not really safe for any kart, I've got a stack of them that I've removed, most are in terrible condition at the time of removing. Relying on those wheels puts your own safety, or the safety...

See my signature! Everything about HF wheels is a terrible idea on a kart, the wheels crumble, bearings fall apart, hubs peel away from the wheel, tubes and tires last minutes. Those are meant for...

It would help more if you post pictures of what you are working with. It depends on which style pillowblock you are using.

Dies at prolonged top speed?

My brother and I went for a top speed run, him on his trike, and me on my ken-bar streaker. His top speed was right at 45 with a degoverned and stage 1 predator 212cc, my top speed was 39 with an...

I know squat about electronics, but I would say if you swapped the two sprockets you currently have it may at least let it move. On all my gas karts I have something like a 10 tooth clutch on the...

Since it's an easy swap I'd put the stock jet back in and see if the issue remains. Every possibility I'm wrong.

Fantastic, just burn it all and pollute like a madman! Why not give it away to someone?
