    Shifter kart rear axle sprocket?

    I'm looking to purchase two piece rear axle shifter kart-type gears, 31-35T for a 50mm axle. I don't see any for sale greater than 30T. Appreciate any info.

    Assuming you're running a Honda or one of the multiple ICC/KZ Euro motors, just change the driver. On many/most occasions when we were fine tuning a ratio, we'd change both the driver and axle gear. EG: 19/23 = 1.210, vs 18/22 = 1.222, vs 17/21 = 1.235. Road race gearing obviously.
    As I recall when we were sprint racing the largest axle gear we had was a 28. And dropping one tooth on the motor is makes a huge difference.
    Have fun,

    Gears that fit QRC brake hubs are available. Contact Brandon Hetrick on here. Winged outlaw karts use them... Though they may be 520 instead of 428.... not sure if he makes both pitches. Another source is Chatauqua Machine, southern NY.
