NEW BATCH 2:1 REDUCTION KIT

ReductionKitBIG.jpg

 

ARE YOU BURNING OUT CLUTCHES WITH BIG WHEELS?   (350mm and bigger?)

If you're having headaches keeping clutches together and you're running large diameter wheels and tyres, don't worry - you're not alone!  Loads of customers daily call with these issues.  Sometimes a simple Torque Converter (You can find those here: https://www.cutpriceracing.com.au/store/Torque-Converters/ will solve the issue, but if your wheels are 350mm and larger, it might be tough to get something working and still retain some ground clearance.

That's where the new 2:1 Reduction kit comes in.  AVAILABLE IN #35 and 420P!

The 2:1 Reduction kit shortens your ratio by half, meaning you effectively double the rear sprocket on your axle.  That up's the possible sprocket teeth from 85T all the way to 170T (when using #35).  Now you can run 500mm+ diameter rear wheels and still keep clutches running reliably.

HOW AWESOME IS THAT!

And best of all, it won't break the bank.  Just look at the price!

Is it time you solved your issue with burning out clutches?  If it is, you can get yours today here:

THIS WEEK'S DIY GUIDE

BigWheels.jpg


SATURDAY NIGHT GUIDES:

HAVE YOU GOT REALLY BIG WHEELS?  CAN'T GET A CLUTCH WORKING?

Sure, big wheels can look great, and most of all give fantastic ground clearance - allowing the use of your vehicle off-road, on the beach or in boggy and bumpy terrain.  Normally the first thing our clients think of when designing an off-road vehicle is how much ground clearance they can achieve.  This isn't a bad thing - ground clearance is fantastic for the most part, but it all falls apart when searching for compatible gearing on a stationary engine.

Typically, most stationary engines will have a 3/4" or even a 1" crankshaft - in the case of 9hp and larger engines which are commonly used on off-road recreational vehicles.

The biggest problem that arises with larger wheels is when using a standard centrifugal clutch s that in order to get a gear ratio that won't destroy the transmission it is necessary to have a rear sprocket that is almost the size of the rear wheels, meaning all the effort designed into the vehicle for ground clearance is wasted.  (Not to mention the fact that anything over about 280mm needs to be custom made, or some sort of incompatible pitch needs to be used)

We have the solution in a simple kit - find out how to run 400mm or bigger wheels reliably and effectively by reading our full guide here:

FRIDAY NIGHT FUN

Craig Chaffey's off road kart

Have a look at Craig's impressive installation of a torque converter on his off road kart.

Craig decided that he needed more accessible power as he was running large OD tyres, so the thoughtful soltuion was to include one of CPR's super-popular TCCX torque converter kits - have a look at how elegant Craig's installation is - a real testiment to planned and thoughtful installation.

Keep an eye on Craig's thread as we update it during the year.

VIDEO Geoff's Lotus Build EPISODE 24
FRIDAY NIGHT FUN !  Geoff's Scale Lotus Build EPISODE 24

"In this episode my microphone stopped working so i had to get creative but I did manage to finish mounting the battery tray before it happened and afterwards i got the fuel pump and tank mounted ready to run the fuel lines." - Geoff

If you love Geoff's build (like us) then you can show him your support by subscribing to his youtube channel - juscozcustoms - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ef0_HPoIKXI

You've seen that dream car - the deep gloss paint glistening in the sun, beckoning you closer to touch it's smooth surface - to open it's door, jump into the driver's seat and turn that key (or press that button if your dream is a bit more modern). And then the reality hit's - it's not yours - and worse still, you can't afford it. It's the reality most of us motor enthusiasts suffer on a a daily basis. BUT WHAT IF YOU DIDN'T HAVE TO JUST DREAM?

That's when Geoff decided it was time to change the rules. Affordability didn't have to get in the way of his dream! He chose to build his own - a 1/2 scale version of a Lotus 7. BRILLIANT! We agree! Thinking outside the box or square or circle is what Geoff is also talented at, and because his project is going to be just as much fun, he's decided to take us all along for the ride! Thanks Geoff!

This is Geoff's thread. Using CPR Kart Parts components, Geoff willl build his very own 1/2 scale Lotus 7. Keep an eye on this thread AND subscribe to his youtube channel to keep updated! We'll also be sharing his videos on our facebook page.

Want to know more about Geoff? Here's a bit of a run-down on the man behind all the fun:

What is this awesome thing you've built?
"1/2 scale lotus 7"

Why did you decide to build this project?
Thought it would be cool and can't afford to build a full size one YET...

What is still left to do to finish it?
"Lots of little things then body work."

What are you going to do with it when it's finished?
"Glorious drifts using a pair of cpr drift rings and maybe even get it on a gokart track"

Why did you buy your parts from CPR?
"Good quality parts at an affordable price "

What was the best thing about the CPR parts you used?
"I can't fault them. The machining and finish is perfect"

What other motorsport stuff are you into?
"I build custom cars not necessarily race cars but they can go fast"

You can follow Geoff's build along with us on his thread on our site, including all the videos as they are posted on youtube here:

CLICK THE PICTURE ABOVE TO LEARN ABOUT THE CLUB

Round 1

NQ FORMULA 250 Club held their first race meeting of 2019 which took place on the 16th March at Pioneer Park Speedway, Brandon. QLD

We had ten drivers take part in the meeting, three of whom were rookies with the remainder of the field having experienced speedway previously.

Four heats of six laps took place, with an 8-lap final rounding out the evening. Jamie Boulter was the man to beat on the night in the four-stroke, surprising all the two-stroke boys and taking the win on three occasions in the heats and coming second in the final.

Congratulations must go to Robbie Grey who took the overall win for the night, with Brady Heathcote rounding out the top 3.

The meet wasn't without action with Kobi Smith (driving his dad's kart after breaking his own) and Luke Patani colliding in the final, luckily both walked away unhurt. Although their karts weren't so lucky, especially any touched by Kobi.

A special thanks goes to North Queensland Speedway Riders and Supporters Club and Rod & Teri Heathcote (owners of Pioneer Park and great supporters of our club) for inviting us to the participate in their speedway meeting. The next meeting date is still undecided, with a weekend in May looking on the cards.

With interest in the class ever growing, anyone seeking additional information on the Formula 250 class is welcome to contact Brett Smith on 0408729482 or visit the Facebook page at, NQ Formula 250's - or click the picture above to find all the links to the club.

Email your project to [email protected]

along with a quick write-up of what you've done and why and we'll try to feature it in our future newsletters.

 

And remember, we're here to help you get out there racing!

You can always be sure your items will leave the same day you order as long as you've made payment by 2pm that day. Sure, it's a big claim, but I know shopping online is all about getting it before the weekend race day, and that's why I'm absolutely dedicated to getting our gear out the same day you order. I believe so strongly that this is a critical component of our business that I've devoted the last two hours of the day to ensuring just that. Don't be surprised if I can't get to the phone during these times as we're probably flat out! Just leave me a message and I'll call you back asap.

I know if you've bought from us before, you've had a great experience. Nothing's changed with our focus - we still want to help the average Australian race, but we're expanding our range every day so I'd love for you to check out our latest website updates and see if we can help you again, today.
