We're back with another go karting 101 video! So you bought your first go kart, installed a 212cc engine (ours is a Tillotson 212), and you want to increase your go kart's performance. These are our five essential go kart mods if you want more power and a higher top speed! First, we remove the 212's governor. It's recommended that you install a high-RPM rated flywheel and a billet rod when removing the governor, because you're going from the factory engine speed of 3600 RPM to around 5500 RPM. Second, we replace the restrictive factory exhaust with a high flow header, install a larger carburetor jet, and add a K&N style intake. Finally, we put a smaller rear sprocket on this old go kart to decrease acceleration and increase top speed. With all of these mods, we went from a 40 second dry lap to a 35 second wet lap around the OG CarsandCameras Grand Prix. Talk about a HUGE improvement!
Thanks for Watching!

What I would like to know is what is the difference with using a small drill bit drawing the jet out versus using the kit with the emulsion tube cuz if you drilled a jet out with a drill bit you reusing the original motion tube so I wonder what the horsepower difference would be

Silicone is amazing for gaskets. Has temp ratings way below zero (can be applied at -20 f) and heat rating of 600 f. I use it all the time and haven't had any issues. Just give it 24 hours to cure properly.

Side cover is 22 inch pounds. I use my milwaukee cordless to snug up then throw the familiar 10mm socket on my cheap harbor freight in/lb torque wrench with 1/4 drive. Then figure out an even pattern and tighten side cover without using the grunt method. I dont mind that method im just saying if i save the original gasket i coat it ever so lightly with grease on the side it didnt stick to. Torque even with torque wrench to 22in/lbs and you can pull that side cover 15 times with same gasket. Edit: 5 seconds improvement is Huge. Y'all who have not done these simple mods yet Will be pleasantly suprised

You guys really really need to do a proper full size/close to full size dirt bike build. Besides just the fact that we'd enjoy it, I think it would grab a whole different viewer base, that being the people interested exclusively in dirt bikes. Just a suggestion!

You are leaning the wrong way! In a cart you should lean outwards from the turn. That puts weight to the outer wheels and gets more grip.

Hi! I'm going to build a kart soon but don't know how to do the translation, so I'll ask you professionals. First question: Torque converter or centrifugal clutch? Second question: which gear should I build on the rear axle, what is the best gear ratio? thank you guys in advance
Isaac it'll be fine
Isaac it'll be fine 7 ամիս առաջ
Its hard to say what gear because i dont know how you are going to ride it. I like to just get the rear sprocket a couple of inches smaller diameter than the tire.

Have you guys found the stock JF200 motor to make a lot of valve noise? Also the connecting rod has a lot of side to side action leading to some weird noises when accelerating or decelerating. Is this by design or did I get a bum engine? Is it the governor gear making all the whining? I've gone through my entire motor, I have the governor still in on setting 4 and stage 1 set up. I added 18# springs and removed them again to see if it made a difference, the motor seems to like the stock springs better but even after lashing over and over I'm getting lots of valve/engine noise. Would a 6 degree key cause premature detonation? I'm referring to the HiangDong on the Trailmaster.

It depends on what you want fast or crusing speed. My go too gearing is if the tire is 24 in diameter then the sprocket would be 20 or 21 in diameter

Hello my name is Evan, I got a question for you guy cars andcameras ok me and my dad have been building a lawn kart over the past 3 weeks it has a brand new motor and brand new everything besides the wheels and frame , we have came over lots of little problems with the go kart and fixed the over time easily but we have a problem straight from the start with the chain falling off we have tried relining the engine multiple times and checking over and over again to make sure it the sprocket is perfectly lined up with the clutch and everything looks straight but it keeps falling off randomly. The only reason that it might be is it might have a bent sprocket but besides that it is very annoying. please help me with a reply or make a video on how I can fix it because I have watch lots of videos and none of them worked
