Bob, you have no idea how much we enjoyed your visit. :D I wish it could've been a longer one. We DO have fun! Glad you got back home to the Great White North. Ted

Re: Tucson vintage play days November 1,2 and 3rd 2019

I'm 100% with Larry on this one. I was sore and stiff, didn't get in a lot of laps, but we had a ball, and Dean's BBQ'ing is masterful! I haven't even got the kart out of the trailer. Back is hurting. Thanks, Dean, Jennifer, Joe, Bill, Terry, John Greaves all the way from Idaho, Bob Kurkowski all th...

I ain't seen either of you buzzards since 2015. It'll be good to see at least ONE of you! Ted

Re: In need of help idenifying 2 different karts.

Unless you have kids, pass on kart No. one. As Rob says, the second is a Percival from '59 or '60 Solid, strong and heavy. Not a great competition kart in its day, but a well built machine. In order to run at vintage events, you would need a two cycle engine such as a West Bend 580 or 700, or anothe...

Re: Rupp, Lancer Go Kart?

P.S., Ted, I don't know much about Darts/Lancers, Etc, being a Bug/Go Kart guy, but I imagine the swing mount for Dart will fit the Lancer, since both are Rupp. Chuck Giacobbe AKA Strokerace on eBay, has a new Robron swing mount on right now. The eBay item No.: 264503004915 I imagine one of the vint...

Re: Rupp, Lancer Go Kart?

Ted, with any swing mount, you'll have to find a mount that attaches to the engine and then the engine/mount assembly to the kart swing mount. If you use a Uni Mount, you then need a side plate which attaches to the side engine mount bolt holes, then the engine/side plate attaches to the Uni Mount w...

Re: Rupp, Lancer Go Kart?

Ted, I'd switch to vintage tires and leave the Nylite style wheels on the Lancer. Vintage Speed or Cheng Shin tires both work very well. As far as the engine mount goes, Robron will have a swing mount that should work on a Rupp kart without the expenditure of a Uni Mount. The main reason for switchi...
