Billy Watson made a better go-kart body that covers the flag. :D :dance3:

Your money is no good, Johnny. Just send me a PM, how many you want, give me your address, and it's done :)

But please do it ASAP, before this Saturday.

I don't normally bring my RGeo aluminum heat sucker to The Dungeon, since the voltage is only about 12.

But 46 degrees of timing is a lot for road course racing .........

Good thing I brought it, because that motor was HOT, but it never slowed or cooked.

So all it proves is, I got away with it one time and still got second place.

 

I'll simply swap it out with the same type arm with 38 deg. timing next time.

It will be easier to drive.

 

Johnny, I got your Watson kart bodies right here. I'll send you a PM in a few days.

Found my X12 to be too much motor for the Turbo Flex so opted for H7, settled for 3rd. Think it was all that good food you fed us just before the race. LOL!!!

Red, you beat a guy who was running an X12 motor, so I'd call that a success, not "settling for 3rd".

Whatever motor you ran, we had fun. Apart from Concours, my favorite car is the clown kart.

Whose is it, Steve H's?

New Havlicek12 arm is going to replace the longer stack Havlicek28 wire arm in my PS 4002B setup.

The H28 arm performed very well and will find a new nest in the future.

 

Bud Green showed us the X12 spec stack and wire is the way to go on Billy's track.

So this is my attempt to do him one better with a shorter and smaller X12 package :)

Yes you are :D  Enjoy it while you can, Budmaster, because my X12 mini motor is coming.... :bb:

 

The H12 arm was 100% "plug n play" into the setup. By that, I mean the (longer stack) H arm it replaced came out, and the new arm went in so precisely I used the exact same spacers. How's that for accuracy, Bunky? :shok: :) I didn't even re-radius the brushes. You may call it reckless - I call it confidence.

 

She draws about 2.6 amps at 3 v and when fed some power she sings, well, like a healthy X12 :)

Gearing will be 6.00 final drive ratio with 72 pitch gears

Bring me a few next Saturday, please.

I'll buy as many as you can give me for $5 apiece :D

 

Seriously, this may be your only opportunity to ever race one of those legally.

I'd highly recommend having it refurbed before building it up and running it.

 

Are they EBD or CD?

My Go-kart has morphed from a scratchbuilt brass car into a stamped steel Mini-X12 speed demon :laugh2:

JK C43 chassis, Ralph Thorne skin, .700 Alpha Wonder Rubber on mag rims, 72P 10/42 gears.

 

Budman, watch your rear view mirror :sun_bespectacled: :crazy:
