Trying to see what people are paying to get the little ones around the track.

What stages are you buying  the motor in and who is building them?

I hear the prices are going from  around $500 to $550... all the way up to $750.oo

Just like a comparison of these engines...as per bang for the buck.

GOOD LUCK TO ALL OUR JUNIOR RACERS !

Jason you can get a built BSP motor anywhere from 500 to 1000. Restricted or not the prices are the same. My little one is starting the year on the same motor but Dover Power sales a kit motor for 250 that's fully blueprinted but you have to assemble yourself. You get all the goodies and max spec internals just not assembled or dyno tuned. Also you have to add the cost of what ever flywheel you want to run and the bolt ons. Even comes with assembly instructions.

That's what he will be running by the end of the year and what my other little one will be on when he gets started towards the end of the year.

wow.  thats alot for a  $99.oo chinese knockoff of a honda engine.

wonder why people dont spend this much and get real racing engines?

whats up with the briggs and stratton sealed  animal?   sounds like a good price for a real motor.

i see alot of guys on the forums arguing back and forth about what is the btter motor between the sealed animal and the clone but price wise looks like the sealed animal is better and more races per rebuild they say but dont know who would actually seal them after rebuild

I believe you could still have around 700 or better in one of the LO206's once you got the pipe and clutch...and only the case is sealed nothing else. They also have a rev limiter 6000 for the standard and 4100 for the JR version. They should run alot longer and be way more consistant in their performance seeing how they are race built.

Still more than I want to invest for a novice kart power plant...

i agree,

predator would be  great for novice with gear rule...  no restrictor...  simple and cheap....

but i also like the local option briggs animal...  that is a good engine, and hear tell it last 2 seasons.

I disagree . They were on a gear rule this past season. We were allowed to run my nephews kart with the predator his first race. I believe the rule was 12 65 or 67. Either way it was super fast . Way faster then the others. We put the red restrictor in it and it wouldn't run worth a damn it wouldn't even keep up with the rest of them. We pulled it back out and lapped the field again.there is a night and day difference between the motors they run now and the predator.. Just my opinion but I've seen the difference
