Re: My new go-kart

That would be insane.
Ive got a video from germany i think, some dudes put a 1100cc motor and gearbox on a gocart chassis. Looks like sooooo much fun!!

Check it out! http://foto.renn.tv/web/video/gixxerkart_video.wmv

If yours is anywhere near as fast as this thing then your one lucky person!

When u consider that a GSXR1000 is good for 0-100k in 3.1 seconds and 0-160 in 6 what will a lighter go-kart chassis do? The mind boggles.

Years ago I read about a go-kart with 2 cr500 motors in it setup for drags. Apparently it was faster over the 8th/mile than a rail car?


wicked!

cheers

Re: My new go-kart

You are a freak! GSXR 1000 fastest accelerating bike built, and you put that engine and box in a kart? You must be one power sick puppy!
How about using a power commander ECU on it, I put one on my Fireblade and gained 15hp after tuning. Maybe a big bore piston kit, turbo, larger throttle bodies and injectors.
