Hi Adam, thanks for the reply. Correct, no hub - bearings sit in the wheel. I don't suppose you have a pic of your retaining washer in situ do you? Does the OTK use 17mm stub axles/bearings too?
Hi
Adam is referring to a full sized kart, whereas you're on a cadet yes?

We have run them to the locknut before but generally left at least a 5mm spacer in there and looked at camber/castor/ride height/ ackermann / using hubs to tune the front end.

Thanks Lucas. Without any reference and lack of available open tracks at the moment, I'm just researching as much as possible on what the general standard setup is. Thanks again. 👍
