Two friends building go karts, mini bikes, and custom machines. Join us in learning, playing, and growing "it'll be fine" engineering. Our most exciting builds include a 670cc V-Twin kart that pulls wheelies deemed the "Black Widow", we've built a rat rod inspired go kart around a Radio Flyer wagon tub known as the Rat Rod Wagon, and a 420cc turbocharged drift trike.

Our favorite modifications and restorations include fitting a 212cc engine on a mini bike, nearly tripling it's original displacement, and restoring and modifying an old racing kart that had been sitting in a field for years before we rescued it.

Many of our projects are capable of 50 miles an hour. There's no telling what you'll see on CarsandCameras, but it's sure to be fast, fun, and fine. Thanks for checking us out!

      Also, you need oil to lubricate the rotary valve, best to reconnect the original oil res. And clean the exhaust valves, regularly. Put in an airbox of the same volume and also as balanced as oem. Don't hack job the pipe, run a silencer made for a 670 amd you'll have a sick kart. Problem is.. if you halfass even one of those.. you are essentially wasting a good engine.

    Oh man I feel so sorry for Ike! I can see how much he wanna work...and he can't....for a mechanic its the hardest when he cant help. 2 years ago I had an eye injury and get blindfolded for 2 weeks... nothing to do in this time...listen to the tv or radio and sittin in a chair while living as a single... and the guys at the garage had so much work. well Ike I really feel your pain man. get well soon dude! only the best for you guys

    Arent the ramps in the helix in the secondary...react on torque in a spacific direction? Ie; wont shift out properly? Just thinking out loud.

    Yeah I'm happy to see a video I thought you guys might have scraped this idea

  • jones420of88

    Also with that engine being hard mounted it’s most likely going to crack the exhaust pipe

    What's the reasoning behind the addition of another jack shaft and sprockets for a chain drive? Is it for suspension purposes or what? I recently picked up a solid axel mini sand rail with a similar drive train ( minus the extra jack shaft with chain drive) and am trying to figure out how to add suspension to the rear. Thank you for the awesome video by the way! Ya'll inspire me!!

    High speed grinders or belt sanders work well to thin down a shaft.

    Top speed on that thing is likely over 100 mph, no exaggeration.

    • JasonMakesItAll

      Having ridden snowmobiles up here in Michigan all my life, I concur. This kart is going to be downright deadly.

    Yes finally. Ive been waiting for yall to get back to this

  • closetpicker

    Boys, I've said it before but you likely didn't see it. That's a rotary valve engine. The primer is absolutely necessary, even in 100 degree temps! What the primer does is seal that rotary valve. Without sealing it, you'll never get it to fire. Once you get the hang of priming it(2 to 4 pumps, typically), it'll be a one or two pull engine.

    I used an Allen key before for a go kart axel and clutch lol


    Please don't use pod air filters, that engine won't survive in dusty environments with sub par air filtration. The air flow through that engine is massive.

    You should turn the secondary clutch around the helix inside is designed to run one direction for forward and it won't shift out properly 😁

    Hey guys this thing is gonna be a monster but you are going to have to flip the secondary clutch over. It will not shift right or at all running backwards. Hope this helps and can't wait to see it rip!

    Running a 440 twin from a 94 indy sport, it was easier and simpler to just cut the jack shaft from the driven pulley and weld a sprocket right to that. A pair of bearings and that's that.

  • ErgoProxy

    lol i would love to see this on that gokart track you guys were at before. That or make your own? lol either way that would be awesome to see how fast it is.

    John your a Non southerner transplant correct??? Where were you from originally? NYS I thought I had heard of in many past videos ago? We have here in NYS snowmobiles coming out our ears here! BUT I guess if you weren't into the whole sledding thing, ya wouldn't know then the slightly different ways a sled engine is designed. Yes for future reference except the fuel injected newer versions most all sled manufactures utilize a wet primer system for starting in sub zero temperatures where they are just a manual piston pump which draws fuel out of the gas line before the carbs and sprays that gas directly into either the carbs or into designed ports in the intake runners. That's why sleds do not have choke on most of them. Some do have chokes to aid in the warm-up process, but mostly they were just prime and rip. Yes I'm glad y'all picked up on that secondary pulley being installed ass backwards, it definitely wouldn't have worked out very well being backwards. The whole time through the video, I was dying to somehow let you guys know it needs to be flipped around for it to open up properly and function. Otherwise you'll eat the belt and have about 1 speed but at the last second, you guys figured that out as well. I can't wait to see what this engine does on those little ass tires..... they are going to melt LMAO! Any Rotax engine is nothing to shake a stick at! One of the utmost best designed 2 strokes on the market and always has been! Rotary valve timing of the intake charge along with the power valve exhaust ports! When that 650 Hits The Pipe it's called aka "it's power band" she's gonna light up your world! You'll also notice on these high performance sleds these days the stall speed of the torque converter is extremely high compared to what you 4 stroke torque converter guys are use to seeing and feeling. For example my Skidoo 700 with the Rotax doesn't begin to start moving until almost 7K! That's when these engines are just beginning to really make some power. So that's completely normal if you notice how high it's stalling. You can easily change out the weights in the driver clutch if you desire it to engage sooner, which is probably a better idea so it's not breaking the tires loose the second it tries to move! Remember these things have to get moving a Big ass heavy belt that doesn't want to bend so easily in cold environments and push the machine and it's occupants through heavy snow! So yes they designed them to be at their optimum performance upon takeoff. On a go kart on hard ground that's probably less than half the weight of the sled it was on, holy SH-T be prepared and I suggest wearing or getting yourselves neck braces!!! It's literally going to be a sling shot if you get any sort of traction what so ever!!! BUT will definitely be one hell of a ride with the power to weight ratio being so skewed Now lol! I'm thinking you'll be needing much bigger slicks and rims like 8X8s rims and some Jr Dragster or ATV road tires 18-20"X9.50X8" to be able to put some traction to the ground. Otherwise it's going to be slow feeling and the engine will be just freewheeling with those tiny tires on it Now. Plus you'll gain so much more top end speed as well as using more of the torque converter shifting as well with larger diameter and wider tires. BUT otherwise it sounds really health that's for sure!! Great job on building that custom axle/jackshaft assembly to utilize the original secondary too! They like anything else are basically a matched set of pulleys. I've seen so many people disregard trying to use the original secondary in their builds, because just that problem, it's not a easily obtainable size shaft to get or they don't have access to a lathe. So the next best thing is to just throw on some Comet secondary off a go kart.......Let's just say that they don't like to be mismatched. They'll never function properly, and the time necessary to get it somewhat dialed closely in to match the primary isn't worth all that extra effort! Just use if you can the matched set off a sled or anything for that matter! Good luck on this project and I can't wait to see it on the ground and moving guys! It will definitely be a whiplash making machine!!! As always try keeping it on all 4 and be safe guy's! Can't wait till the next video Now lol! Have a good night.
