    Don't sweat it just chuckle and let it go in one ear and out the other I had to learn to, most times NO response back sends more of a message than responding stooping to the same level, If all I have to do is deal with the directness to have access to the knowledge I'll suck it up, in the end you know your only trying to help.

    Chassis was cheap enough I figured why not

    It is 40" from front axle to rear. 43" would be back of rear tire somewhere

    The seat brackets I have are still some what short I think for my son to learn with. Right side was about 7.5 inches and mounted pretty high on the seat. Do you measure seat post brackets from weld to center of bolt hole or center of the tube it mounts to? Was told a local track can help me with these once we get up there.


    Took my sons to eagles nest Saturday and they are both wanting to go at it. Maybe if the older one is are lucky, by the end of the season he'll get to try

    Late back to this ballgame, but a champ kart with a 40" wheelbase doesn't sound like any Titan T3 I ever saw, and certainly not the one I owned, so disregard everything I said in post #4 above, which applies to a full sized Titan T3 champ, not a Jr Sportsman 1/II champ.

    That having been said, at least it seems to be the a Jr Sportsman champ, which is the size the you need to support your son's racing through age 12.

    The cage is defiantly not grown up sized. My head sticks out the top

    Do most people remove the engine to service the oil since the motor mount is super slanted ?

    I know where the drain plug is but your level on the dip stick is based on being level?

    Or how many ounces are people normally putting in a clone and the gear box

    No : raise the front till it's level , or as XXX#40 said use 14 oz.

    I thought clones had a reduction gear with a separate oil fill? Ill have to go look again

    that's what I planed on doing. Didn't know if guys just pulled the motor every time since it's easy enough.

    There's no gear reduction on clones, that just comes on engines designed for mortar mixers etc.
    I've never removed or leveled an engine to change oil

    1/4 midgets have used a gear reduction box for ever.

    What's the front dipstick then on the motor? Just another oil one?

    Yes it is but you will have to fill it through the back dipstick hole.
