2015 Thoughts from Kartspeed     2015 At Kartspeed Motorsports....some thoughts for the new year....

2007 CRG Electric Kart    2007 CRG Road Rebel Electric Powered Kart
CHASSIS: 2007 CRG Road Rebel chassis- (32mm)
ENGINE: This is an Alltrax electric powered kart! 
DATA SYSTEM: This kart comes with an Alltrax XRay Data System mounted on the steering wheel
SEAT: Remember, when you buy a new or used kart, the seat has to fit you! Kart seats start with Kid XS and range all the way to Adult XXXL. So don't be caught out. All Kartspeed Motorsports come with fiberglass seats sized to fit as long as you are between size kid XS and Adult Large! Want a custom seat? We are a dealer for CRG, Tillet, IMAF and KG Racing Seats.
AXLE SIZE: 50mm CRG
BRAKES: CRG VEN04 factory brake system front and rear
WHEELS: Aluminum wheels all around
TIRES: All pre-owned karts come with good used MG,  Bridgestone or Mojo (for ou racing slicks.
BODYWORK: Due to the battery boxes used in place of the side pods, the bodywork on this kart is just the front spoiler and front driver panel. Both are Freeline in black with custom CRG Graphics. 
SPECIAL FEATURES: EV Kart power makes this one special. Not quite a running/driving kart....this one is ready for some TLC and then some driving!
Price: $3,495.00 OBO
2007 CRG Road Rebel with Electric Power!
A kart like this will need a special owner. Not quite ready to run, this will be a bit of a project kart. Thus the or best off listing for the price. The proceeds for this specific kart will be donated to a local high school, so all the money will go to a good cause! The chassis is standard CRG from 2007 with VEN04 brake system, 32mm chassis, Freeline bodywork and chrome hoop style rear bumper.
The engine package is quite a bit different than the typical gas powered engine fit to a chassis like this one. This kart is designed for electric engines powered via batteries A previous owner fabricated two battery box holders, in place of the standard side pod bodywork and a custom panel behind the drivers seat to mount the controller and solenoid and wiring. The wiring functions and we have tested the solenoid.
The controller box is not functioning and will need to be replaced. After doing a little research it looks like a $650.00 item to replace. Batteries (requires 30 lithium batteries) to power this beast will be approximately $600.00. The Alltrax electric motor on this kart is valued over $1,300.00. 
The brand new 2014 CRG's electrically powered start at $15,000.00. So by comparison this kart gets a EV customer in the door at a fraction of the cost. Adding in the required bits at over $1,200.00 brings you to the track with EV power for less than $5,000.00

We want to make it clear that we are not electric powered kart experts here at Kartspeed Motorsports. Our primary business is 2 and 4 stroke, gas powered dedicated sprint racing engines and the racing chassis designed for them.  So we are open to realistic offers to get this kart to a home that is enthusiastic for EV power!

What’s new for Kartspeed Motorsports in 2015?
As our business grows and evolves we continually try and find ways to better help our customers. So each new year provides a chance for us to reflect on things we did right and things we did wrong. Usually there are check marks in both columns! What we found is the biggest area customers need our help is with information. Sprint Karting Racing is one of many niche’ sports that struggle to find a place in the vast network of fun hobbies as well as professional level sports here in the United States. But what that means is there are not a great many dedicated sprint racing kart shops in America. Many are run as part-time or side businesses. While there is nothing wrong with having a kart business on the side, it may limit the ability of customers to get the answers they need, when they need them.

But what about the Internet? There must be information there! Everything else is on-line.

Many topics have so much information on-line, one would take a lifetime or more just to sift through all the available articles to read. Think of anything medically related, for example. We could never read all the available information on-line. But with sprint kart racing, that is not the case. Is there kart information out there in cyber-space, yes. Is it helpful to new customers entering the sport? Not always.

Karting can’t be that different than motocross bikes, sport bikes or ATV’s, right?

Unlike Motorcycles, ATV’s, Personal watercraft and similar vehicles, there are many, many choices that need to be made when purchasing a kart. For example, did you know there are over 100 individual kart chassis’s available world-wide? Did you know there are several dozen engine packages available for each person to choose from? Did you know most racing kart manufactures do not provide a user manual for their chassis? Did you know that a racing kart that is popular in Texas may be almost unknown one state away?

Unlike motorcycles, where by comparison, there are a limited number of choices and at each dealer, you don’t typically build your bike! The salesman looks at your age, size and experience and recommends a couple motorcycles that fit your needs. From there its pretty straight forward. Do I want the Yamaha, Suzuki, Honda, Ducati or Kawasaki? (I use motorcycles as an example because many customers transition from motocross or sport bikes to karting. Keep the speed, but reduce the injuries being the goal.) By comparison to the hundreds of chassis in karting, motorcycle purchases are quite a bit more straightforward. And don’t forget once you have the chassis brand chosen, then you have to know what stiffness chassis is right for you. But wait, you aren’t done yet…now which engine do you need? Hmm? This is a bit more complicated than buying a kart off Craig’s List or EBay. We know, because many of those Craig’s List/EBay karts end up in our shop with some very unsatisfied owners. That great ‘deal’ on price, soon becomes not so great when they end up with the wrong kart.

So what we provide here at Kartspeed Motorsports, along with new and used racing karts and parts, is somewhere to go for help. Answers to questions and suggestions to what may be the right kart to purchase. What karts are “good?” Which are “bad?” What is the right chassis size for me? Why are there different chassis sizes? Are all the chassis the same; just painted different colors? What is the difference in a low horsepower 4 cycle compared to a 2 cycle TaG? What does TaG mean by the way!? Can I drive a high horsepower shifter kart, or is those only for more skilled drivers? What about the seat size? …If I don’t fit the kart, then what? Every week we receive calls with these questions and more. Thus information is what we offer and what keeps our business growing.
