'and it needs to be slow, old and ideally unusual/rare'
Well that at least describes most of us even if not our CK's

I do know some people, when they use large cell polystyrene, wrap it in brown packaging tape to protect it from the resin. Please note I havnt tried this myself.

I seem to remember VSCC used to do a race, don’t know what they called it, where you have to change spark plugs half way though the race.
Can’t help thinking we could do something similar...drive up, and stop, as soon as stopped the timing starts, stop the engine and get out, remove the spark plug, rub around the CK, replace the spark plug, start the engine keep in and drive off as soon as the wheel start turning the stopwatch is switched off.

Yes please

What a great day that was, tremendous fun...and the Masser behaved it self all day :-)
Love the photo Jim, why don't you turn it black and white or sepia, I recon it would look totally period.

I've received my message, thanks :-)

Don't know about anyone else, but I havn't received any WhatsApp msg from the circuit.

Just out of interest, Rhys you mention lubrication for the bronze bush but didn't say with what???
Occasional squirt of oil, grease, or some special mixture I ain't heard of?

It's a complete, base ladder frame chassis, it's sized for 66" wheel base.
When I get home after work I'll take a couple of photos and put them up here.

Hello and welcome to the forum.

I have a chassis which looks like I won't be using, I bought it off of a member here (Rhys) to get a head start on the building of my son's CK. However I decided to go the same route as I used on my Maserati CK. I can take a couple of pictures if you are interested.

That's looking excellent. A quick question do you stick the aluminium to the plywood or just mechanically fix it here and there?

Re the big question, keep it, drive it, enjoy it, improve it...rinse and repeat until someone makes an offer you can't refuse. (please note I didn't say finish it because we all know they are never really finished)  ;D

Good morning Richard and welcome.

CK guidelines/rules can be found here... http://www.cyclekartsgb.com/what-is-a-cyclekart/what-is-a-cyclekart-and-rulesguidelines/

Or simply put, Honda GX200 or clone, allowed to go to stage 1 mods, so max 9.5 - 10 HP, I don't think any of us have actually felt the need to do this, all I've done is changed to a tuned exhaust to give a boost to low revs torque, and removed the screw that keeps it's revs to 3500, I think I get all of an extra 300 RPM! Others have changed carbs.

If I could suggest go with bog standard engine, drive the wheels off it, have a blast, and change things as and when you feel you must :-)
