LO 206

Postby Jimmy Criswell » Fri Jul 06, 2012 12:18 pm

My name is Jimmy Criswell and I have been running the chondas for a few months now. I am looking to go faster and do not know what the logical next step is. I am leaning towards briggs but need to know more about the total cost involved. I know the 206 is used but my understanding is that a different pipe and ignition system is used? Everything other than that is bone stock correct?

In the event that I want to go faster than that after a while...will other classes open up for the animal platform where we can modify them a bit?

Thanks!

Hello Jimmy,

I don't think NTK has an Animal LO206 class. The next class is box stock Animal. Mike at Kam Karting can sell you everything you need.

After that, maybe KT100 is the way to go. Or, you can run Brackets and build your engine anyway you want. Years ago, NTK had a bunch of Bracket racers (largest class at one time), and it was a great way to race karts IMO.

I recommend Box Stock Animal, that's what I run. :-)

What is the difference between box stock and LO 206? Which one is faster? What kind of ignition system and pipes are used?

Jimmy, If you want to go faster, mash the right pedal a little farther forward. :D

I think main diff is LO206 has rev limiter, limited to 6100 rpms, Animal doesn't and we turn more than 6100. Otherwise, LO206 is an Animal.

Animal will be faster. Also, no one runs LO206 at NTK that I know of. Call Mike at Kam, phone 817-638-5278.

I plan on being at the races tomorrow, would be happy to talk with you, kart #35, old guy. :-)

The senior Briggs & Stratton Sealed Animal Box Stock class at NTK allows drivers to run either the KAM Karting Sealed Animal Box Stock engine, or the LO 206 Sealed engine. The engines are the same. The KAM sealed engine is sealed straight out of the box by KAM Karting, and the LO 206 engine is sealed at the factory by Briggs and Stratton and should be available from most Briggs & Stratton dealers.

The Animal engine comes from the factory without a pull starter, so you would probably want to add a pull starter as this is the most economical/simplest way to start your Animal. (Recoil starter runs about $30)

The LO 206 ships with the pull starter, but has a PVL ignition modules with a rev limiter of 6,100 rpm. You will want to replace that PVL with the 12,000 rpm PVL as this is the PVL that is included with the Animal engine. (the PVL runs about $90)

Regardless of which engine you purchase, you should run the Robertson Animal pipe at NTK.

You can find the official rules for the Animal class in section 2.1.15 of the NTK rulebook:

Is Kam Karting the most economical way to go? How much RPM do the animals normally turn at NTK? Have the lap times stayed the same from last year for the most part?

We're all still running the same engines we ran last year, but the track surface is better this year, so the lap times are a little faster.

Mike Engstrom at KAM Karting is a good source for NTK's Animal/LO206 class. Last time I checked prices, you could get a complete Animal package, ready to bolt on and race, including engine, chain guard, air filter, clutch, engine mount, and exhaust... for about $850. I've seen similar used packages for as low as about $500.

Jimmy,

I believe the Animal Box Stock Heavy class is 350lbs (Animal Box Stock Medium is 325lbs)

Did you say you are over the Chonda Heavy weight of 385lbs? That may be something you might want to consider.
