FRIDAY NIGHT FUN

Sean Periera's New Race Kart Build

Every Friday we'll be posting one of our fantastic customer DIY projects. These have been designed and built using quality CPR kart parts by guys and girls just like you! There's some really exciting stuff to check out, so keep an eye out each Friday for our next instalment!

This week: Sean Pereira's back again with a new toy - his race kart!

MaMaCreekTV7.jpg
Here's a bit of a run-down from the man behind this build:

Following on from Sean's Drift-Style kart conversion, we're now treated to his latest project - a new race-style kart.

"And so it begins"

"PROGRESS UPDATE

Torque converter mounted! After our chats, I figured I'd make 2 bracing brackets to limit plate flex, apart from having to completely remove and refit the axle assembly, it went really well. Had near perfect chain tension, dead on alignment and free-spin by hand so it should be all lined up.

Fitted the cover to the converter, but might remove if the seat shields it. Will get a second chain and make it to suit a 55 tooth sprocket, ahead of needing it. At present, this thing should snap necks with take off acceleration, but probably won't be too fast overall

Wired in a old jet fighter switch, and plate for the rippem' gauge

So, only really the seat, bleed brakes and run fuel lines to go!

Rather than reweld the seat supports, might just use the tube clamps and arms you sell.

Depending on the seat, might change out the exhaust pipe to one of those fandangled ones you sell that bends up and carries over the top of the rocket cover

I don't say it enough, but many thanks for your help during these adventures!"

VIDEO Geoff's Lotus Build EPISODE 32
FRIDAY NIGHT FUN

"In this episode I build a intake manifold to lower the carby to sit below the bonnet and take it off to the side of the engine hopefully it works well." - 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=alQlEdOxmMI


GeoffLotusEp31.JPG


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 4 Results

Round 4 of The Ipswich City Dirt Kart Club Championship  which was proudly sponsored by B & R Water Cartage has been run and won. Being a rescheduled Race Meet we still had a great turnout for the Night. With 53 Karts we were all in for some great racing for everyone to see.

Our Rookies and Juniors led the way as always showing off how far they have come and how much their driving skills have improved. But most of all they all had fun and were all very happy with their results. When it came to our Seniors what a fantastic night of racing did we witness. We were able to combine a few Groups which made the racing even better.

The standout of the Night was definitely our Group 3, 4 and Modified combination and all of our Drivers said so themselves. Our Group 3 and Group 4 Karts really let our Modified Group know they were there. 

How good was it to see both our Junior Club Champion Jett Adamson and Senior Club Champion Dayle Formosa both out on the track showing everyone exactly why they are our Club Champions.

A massive thank you goes out to all of our officials who made the Night run very smoothly. To our Pre Grid guys once again thankyou for coming out and doing another great job on the Night. Thanks to Leanne, John and Steve for running the Timing once again and to our Canteen Crew we thank you for keeping everyone well fed.

To Brett and Ashley once again you guys did a great job on the Grounds and most of all giving everyone a fast track to race on.

To our Club President Mick Floyd we thank you for helping everyone out and making sure everything was covered prior to Race Day.

Have you got a project you've completed using some CPR parts that you'd like to show the CPR Kart Parts community?

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. Go on, visit our store at www.CutPriceRacing.com.au - I mean, surely you've got a couple of minutes for fun?
