What chassis is it as different chassis use different wheeels
It's a Shark Attack - 2011 homologation. Not seen much info on them to be honest, though can't say I've researched it much aside from their website.

Thanks for the video too, I'll have a watch later this evening. 👍

It uses zip wheels from what I've seen
So
Zip black slicks
Zip gold wets
Zip black wets
And there are a few specials but don't worry about them

We may have some zip wheels left or there are a few sets floating about on the Facebook for sale groups.

Great info thanks mate. And in typical fashion, I've just bought a set of Jet wheels for wets at lunchtime today!
The ones currently on are black aluminium solids, 110 + 150 from what I can measure with the tyres on and a steel rule. Wets I've ordered are 110 + 130 with 10 lap old tyres for £120, which seemed like a good deal to me.

When you say we? Sorry for my ignorance.

Thanks

It’s the offset as well as the width...

Yeah I understand. Couldn't find the offset of the ones fitted though so hoping these are ok! They're only for practice anyway and rears shouldn't be an issue, so unless they're really high up front and foul the stub axles it should be ok. Admittedly, it may upset the balance if they're a long way off but at his current level it shouldn't be an issue should it? The overall track width doesn't need to conform to gold book regs for cadet class either as it's only a practice kart.

I guess it’s better than nothing but you do need to get the zip wheels as karts designed to run with them don’t on Jet wheels unfortunately. I don’t know how much difference it makes to driving as I always had the zip rims with the zip and jet with the p1.
