Re: New To Karting, Need Some Direction:

Nazaaw, The article is correct. It takes skill to get a fast lap time in a lower horsepower (4-cycle or KT100) kart. It is all about being a smooth driver & keeping up your momentum through the turns. If you learn to drive in a lower horsepower kart you will be a better driver when you move up to a ...

Re: Clone Engine Help

You're welcome. Gene wrote those break-in procedures & gave them to people when we started the class a couple of years ago.

We buy our oil at Walmart in the large 5 quart size.

Re: How do I mount a seat?

I think Gene puts large tubing over the seat struts to gently bend them rather than use a hammer. Let me check with him & I will post back if he has any other tips.

Re: How do I mount a seat?

Hi Aaron, When I was webmaster I posted some articles in the NTK Resources page that includes one titled "The Art of Installing a Seat" it is a reprint of an National Karting News article. Be sure to click on the image to view the entire article that is four pages long. http://www.ntkarters.com/reso...

Re: New to karting

Paul, Please come to the track and see what classes are run & talk to racers in the different classes to see which class you might be interested in. Yamaha & Chonda are great classes to start out in. Both have large fields with plenty of other racers to race with. Which one depends on your budget & ...

Re: What tires can I run?

Matt, My sons used to race in club & challenge Rotax classes & they would split the classes up with a class or 2 in between. This meant that we had to change wheels between heats. I haven't seen anyone do this lately. They seem to either run the club or challenge, usually not both. Maybe Bob can che...

Re: Class Info

Randy, I don't think we have anyone racing in TAG Junior.

Reed Flores used to race in that class but he moved up to the TAG Sr class.

Re: Newbie - Looking for Information

They race clones all across the country. We call them Chonda's here (Chinese Honda clone) but they are normally referred to as the 4-cycle clone class or Box Stock Project. The idea behind the class is to keep everything stock to keep costs down. Here at NTK we have adopted the nationally accepted A...

Re: Newbie - Looking for Information

Hi Matthew, Chonda is a great 4-cycle entry level class. It is an entry level class that has very little maintenance so you can concentrate on driving. Yamaha is also a good entry level class costs more and will require more maintenance on the engine and clutch. Rotax is faster & more expensive but ...

Re: Question from HCKC

The Yamaha class is a great class. My boys raced in it for years. I wouldn't mind racing in it but Gene has got lazy & doesn't want to rebuild the engines or work on the clutches and it gets pricey to pay someone to do it. Cost & maintenance is a major factor. Stock Chonda $130 Blueprinted Chonda wi...

Re: How do I get started? I want to give it a try!

Jeremy, That sounds like a great plan to use your kart at NTK & autocross. In 2011 we will be switching to Snell 2005 helmets. But the Snell 2005 helmets will not be required until the 2011 NTK race season starts in March. See NTK Rule 1.2.1 Protective Driving Gear http://www.ntkarters.com/Rules-400...
