Also, I see a driver in the video running CIK bodywork. The rules on their site state full speedway style bodywork which to me means CIK bodywork is not legal. Can you shed some insight on this Rod?January 26, 2019 at 11:32 am in reply to: Icespeedway Event @ Budweiser Event Center Jan. 20th #86091

Anthony, I built one for a hobbyist customer of mine, and its a pretty epic engine. Very smooth throttle delivery, gobs of power, and the power is available at all points in the rev range. It was very easy and straightforward to install. I did it in about 4 hours having never even seen one in person before.
There are many debates everywhere about whether or not it will take over the Honda at a local regional level, and my opinion is no, it will not replace the Honda at a local level. Parts are too cheap and too easy to get. for the Honda, and there are too many of them out there in the marketplace. I do believe though, that if you buy a 175 and show up to a CKT event, they will let you enter in some category but you would have to check with them to be sure. Just email them through their website.
ROK Shifter would be another interesting option as you can race it in CKT or Rok the Rockies.
It is hard to argue against Honda though, as it is doubtful you can buy cheaper parts in as many places as you can the Honda.
The drain plug is the 10mm square plug on the front lower part of the engine. Remove that and the oil will drain. The fills for the engine are the yellow plastic plugs which are both front and back, you can use either.
Be careful when re-tightening the square plug into the block, it is a pipe thread (which basically gets bigger as you thread it in) and I have seen people over tighten it and crack the block.
Use only Briggs 4t oil, and I run 14oz. You will hear some different opinions on how much oil to run, anywhere from 12 to around 16 is what people run.July 23, 2018 at 12:10 pm in reply to: **SOLD** 2 Vortex Mini Rok Engines for Sale **SOLD** #83878
Our track will run CCW for round 4 and CW for round 8. We flip direction around every two weeks.
For around a week and a half to two weeks before each event we will exclusively run in the direction of the race.
Feel free to call the track at any time for current availability and track direction.
I believe that especially for your first kart purchase, you will find an invaluable amount of help by buying it from someone that can support it locally and help you at the races. The learning curve in this sport is steep, and having someone on your side to help you learn the driving, mechanics, and the other ins and outs will be highly beneficial.
We sell and service karts (Compkart and Tony Kart) at the track, Dustin Courter runs an Intrepid Dealership in CO, Action Karting, GJMS, SBR, and IMI could all also be good resources. My advice would be to talk to as many shop owners/people as you can on the phone or in person and buy locally with whoever you feel the most comfortable with or feel you will get the most support from. At the end of the day I don’t think you can go wrong with a local dealer, but I do believe that buying any product from out of state just to save a few dollars will end up costing you more in the long run.
