    Time to replace?

    If you ran in the wet (especially without a rain-guard) - it ingested some moisture. If it sat for long after that, could explain the discoloration above the top ring in the cylinder.

    Carlson Motorsports @ the S.E. Premier Motorsports Expo

    We'll be bringing some of our rebuilt Bullys (Same price as usual $200 with your choice of driver) - you will save on shipping at the show though. See you there!

    Time to replace?

    I caught that too -- wet weather racing I would assume. That tends to wear the cylinder prematurely also.

    Time to replace?

    My suggestion would be to freshen the head regardless of the direction you go with a new engine. The very best 206s to go across our dyno have been 20-25 race day bottom ends with a fresh valve job cylinder head (generally the first cut is the best.) I just wrote an article for our Facebook...

    Chain Difference

    ^ That, right there. Do not use a snap ring on the 11T drivers, use a spiral lock (single or double.) ----- 🏁Thanks and God bless, Brian Carlson Carlson Racing Engines Vector Cutz www.CarlsonMotorsports.com Carlson Motorsports on Facebook 31 years of service to the karting...

    New tires?

    You might do better on some used tires early in the year - kinda depends on car count and weather too. You can sand the tires (refinish) them, but that's not the same as "scuffing" them on a track. If you can't get on a track, maybe a smooth parking lot (just don't chew the tires up.) If you can...

    Kart Racing in Ripley County Indiana?? Gauging interest for 2020

    More choices of tracks is generally a good thing. Tracks that operate efficiently and put on a good show will thrive, while those that don't get it right will dwindle off. With your proximity to the Burg, having open tire rule would help racers who want to race with you that want to use their...

    Tire temp readings

    Let it go, Jamie -- we're not convincing you, and I seriously doubt that you'll convince many that are on the other side of this issue. :)

    Tire temp readings

    Just goes to show you can agree on some things, and not everything. :)

    New tires?

    Good posts above - let me add: I think it depends on what you are trying to accomplish. A lot of times, tires are scuffed months ahead of time, then internal prepped as you get closer to race day (10-14 days out.) Different internals need differing amounts of cure time as well. ...Are you...

    Limited Mod Alky Oil

    I'm not suggesting that you are oil illiterate. I have no idea what you know about oils, other than you asked for suggestions. 62R is good stuff. I wouldn't use any other FHS products in a big open though. If you're looking for "cheaper" then just stay with the Thor heavy. 62R or 4T would...

    Pulling hard to the left

    Too much cross and/or stagger on the front can do that as well. 1 1/2" stagger across the front is pretty normal, very rarely any more than that. How much craoss are you running? If you're holding the LF up in the air while going down the straights, it will jerk to the left when you let go of...
