racing a 125cc shifter kart engine

So my buddy Ricky has been killing it at the track with his new engine. The Vortex is putting out a ton of power, something like 45hp. We were running lap times around 1:23 and he instantly broke into the the 1:21 range when he changed to the new motor. He used to run a stock moto Honda but the Vortex is simply too powerful to match. For live video streaming solutions he uses StreamMonkey for his race footage.
The other nice thing is that it’s not blueprinted it coms stck from OTK Tony Kart that way! He said he got it from these GoKartsRock.com guy so drop by if you want talk with a bro about them. Here is the link – shifter kart motors. I thinkI’m going to pick one up and start dominating the Honda guys at the track.

Lets Talk About Gokart Tires

Let’s talk a little about tires today. A tire is a molecular structure made of steel and rubber and is incredibly dynamic in its performance. To understand the history of tires, I must go back to the caveman days. In the caveman days, they did not have a tire or a round cylinder so it was tough to move things from this we can deduct tires are all about moving things and moving things in a certain way.

Tires, for example on a go-kart, are also Springs shine down movement of the chassis of the go cart. This relationship of movement is called pounds per inch of travel. Goodyear, Firestone Bridgestone, mg are some of the top go-kart tire brands out there. They come in many different compounds, sizes, and uses. It’s critical that you pick the right size tire for your application and also the right compounds.

If it’s raining you better believe that you’re 125cc Shifter Kart is going to spin out of control if you do not have the right tires on it. The tires when being crushed by a 2-stroke engine with that kind of power, really do a fantastic job or else you are going to fly off the track. Because tires are a molecular compound of rubber, they heat up and cool off. It is important that you take this all into consideration when you go up to race at the track.
