Twiggy.
I am having no luck getting rears to seal on the rim (9" rim). Does the collapsing "can" ( or sleeve,) that keeps the tire from growing under pressure aid in getting the tire beads far enough apart to touch the rims? Thanks for any advice you might have. Ken

definately use a tire band !!....i heard the sidewalls were stiff and the tire band will keep the OD from growing and the air will push the sidewalls out...some of these rims with the extra bead lip are a pain to get the tire past to fully seat

Ken,
   Todd is right use the TIRE BAND!!  Some are pretty tough to pop out depending on the wheel type.  Van-K's are usually the toughest to get seated.  Im running Douglas they were not that bad.  Looking forward to seeing everyone the 22nd!  Hoping for a good turn out.  I have my 206 now so getting it ready!

Good deal. I think 350/375 will be good. I think that's what they run down in Jax. Besides, I think I'm gonna be the only one left running a clone anyway.

I would like to see the Junior (12 to 15?) rules copy what Go Pro is going to run in Restrictor (Yellow) and Weight (310).. even thought the tires are different at least it wont be much changing when the race dates are back to back. Thanks, Todd

Todd, ours will be basically the same LO206 junior 12-15 310lbs with the yellow restrictor and the red for the cadets 7-11 265lbs im going to put all class details out today. Only difference being we will be on the Maxxis tire.

Thanks for the info.. I believe if both clubs/tracks run as many of the same rules its going to help get more Karts...

but... after talking to the GoPro guys yesterday it looks like they are going to use the CIK type of Kart for their chassis rules not a 4 cycle WKA type. 

So if anyone is looking for a nice WKA 4 cycle MGM roller I have one for sale or trade for a nice Birel,CRG,Tony,Kosmic,Arrow...etc [smile]

Thanks again... Todd

Todd if you don't know already, Palmetto Super track in Elgin is running karts this year also. If I remember correctly, none of the dates conflict. So keep your MGM and to heck with Go Pro.
I'm in Charlotte and my daughter is in Mt Pleasant so ideally, I would prefer to run at GoPro but, the more I look at it, between the entry cost,rules and tires, I'm thinkin
CMP and Palmetto are the way to go. Palmetto is open tire and running clone and I think Rob will be fine mixing in the 206's with the clones.
Or, if you want I've got a Tony Kart (dont know the year or model yet) frame coming down in a few weeks, I'd be happy to put it together for you. Just give me a budget and I'll make it work.

PS:I can't by this second but how much are you trying to get from your MGM?

thanks for the info on Elgin... we will race at all 3 if the Kart count is good.. we only had 1 other kart in our class the last 2 years at Kershaw.. even the WKA Gold Cup Race at Kershaw had only 4 karts in our class ! 

I've already sold my Clone Motors but still have everything else to sell.... I have the roller for sale on Ekarting News for $1250.00
