    Thanks,

    I am jealous of the little buggers getting all this racing time.

    The in car camera is my 11 year old son.

    Fun to see the steering wheel and hand gestures

    We will be building even more 13hp karts for adults to get an affordable racing fix.

    couple more years and it will come full circle and the kids will probably be racing 600cc where we started

    down the road we will continue to up the motor size for them.

    shifter motor would be a nice step before 600cc.

    Tough thing is to have easy access to an off the shelf , easily purchased stock/ standard motor to keep it even.

    I did a little search and $$$

    If any body has good source or more info on shifter motors I would be interested

    Jody,

    A good engine for that would be the Suzuki LTZ 400. They are everywhere on ebay and it has reverse built in. I am thinking about changeing gears on my project and moving to building a Mini T. I would use an engine that has reverse. The KFX 450R, Polaris 450 and 525 all have reverse from the factory and there are plenty of upgrades available for them.
    CRASH!!! GAME OVER!!!!!
    INSERT COIN!!!!!

    Videos are sweet! How is the life on those torque converter belts? I have never run one but picking up one now for my little 6.5. Are they comet 30 series or something different?

    Those cars move really well.
