Im not sure which section this would fall into as its not a drift car, but it will def. drift
This is the reason why I am selling off all my higher power parts that were going to be bolted onto my FC:
One kart with front and rear hydraulic brakes
One Suzuki SV650 bike
One engine from the SV650 (engine is currently at a bike/car breakers)
I have worked out with the OEM chain ratio if I had kept the same sprockets the top end would be 55mph lol I spent a bit of time working out and sourcing the right rear sprocket needed to get the same top end as the bike with the smaller kart rims, this is what I have gone with, its a 25T sprocket running a 530 chain with a taperbush.
Polished up some spare rims -
The SV650 does the 1/4 mile in around 11 seconds, the kart might be as fast or faster lol its got a 6 speed semi sequential box, I have gone with the earlier carbed engine, so its easier to start with, runs at around 60bhp, I will swap in the later cams which are higher lift to bump it up to around 70bhp.
The engine will be mounted in the OEM position on the kart frame, I went with the V twin SV650 engine as its quite compact, you will see a lot of 'Gixxerkarts' having to chop the frame and then make it longer to fit an inline 4 engine in, I can simply offset the seat to balance the engine and myself and the kart will still fit in the boot of the car.
I have some newer rims coming with some slicks, they won't be good enough for drag runs due to them probably only having a speed rating of around 100mph, will get some new Dunlop tyres for drag racing.
The 250cc 2 stroke twin cylinder superkarts run at around 90bhp, so it won't be as quick as those, however my engine won't require a £400 rebuild every time I use it!
I will keep posting up bits as and when I get something done, just thought I would show everyone what im up to
Ive called it projet Psycho as I have been classed as 'A1 mental' on a few bike forums
An SV kart has been built before, but not in the UK, so I know its possible, I just need to build it! Sounds rather good
