    General Safety / Quality question

    As Adam says, OTKs and their different coloured variants (Kosmic, Expirit, Red speed, Older Alonso) are known for cracking around that area. You'll have people telling you it's because the engine stop isn't backed off properly but we had the same issue and we've been doing this for donkey's...

    General Advice for junior karting (4yo)

    Personal opinion is that 4 is a little too early for Bambino. The focus and concentration isn't there. We took our little one to Daytona bambino school when he was old enough and it was a great way to see if he wanted to do it more often. Had he not, then we would have saved the cost of...

    General The run upto 2021, what we all doing?

    We've pretty much closed down for the winter. I'm just finishing off a long language course and the kids are just about to finish school for Xmas. Glad to be able to have got 3 race meetings out at Llandow. Pretty much the only track time we've had but more than we thought. Harri's outfit is...

    General Comer c50 Price

    As has been mentioned below, the engine isn't really meant to be used for racing. To that end there are massive variances between how quick the engines are. The only way you'll find this out is by buying a new engine, running it for 10 hours and then sending it to a rebuilder to get it fiched...

    Technical Senior Rotax Wet Setup Advice

    It was about 3 minutes of drizzle short of being the right decision. Started raining at the Llandow IKR and I was convinced it would stay around so made a list minute call to switch to wets. It didn't, but it wouldn't have taken much more rain to have made it the right decision....

    Technical Senior Rotax Wet Setup Advice

    You can do that, but it takes time. And if you're in a hurry, getting things changed over as quickly as possible is generally a good way to go....

    Technical Senior Rotax Wet Setup Advice

    Yup, we'd generally have the wets on hubs ready to go so it was just then a case of removing the front and rear hubs and putting the wet hubs on. Speeds up the change a little...

    Technical Senior Rotax Wet Setup Advice

    How long is a piece of string? Definitely one of those things that needs testing to find out what works for you and your chassis. The Compkart has more front end than my Kosmic ever had so the setup for that would be different to an otk. Basic idea is to get the rears in as much as you legally...

    General Comer c50 Price

    Herein lies the problem. Because of the motors being so wildly different, even if you buy a brand new one, give it its first 10 hours and then get it rebuilt, it's still not necessarily going to be a good motor. It's the exact reason you see the very quick Bambinos out every weekend, and...

    General Comer c50 Price

    Just to manage some expectations here, be prepared to find out that your engine may not be up to par with some of the better ones. The Comer c50 is not a racing engine so there are wild variances in performance. There are rumours of top level Bambino engines going for 5 figures... In terms...
