Was at my local yesterday and there was a bunch of first time drivers on the track. Had the inside line, but had a dude tag me and our wheels made contact. Afterwards, my kart was vibrating pretty bad.
Damage assessment, my original 50mm axle has a decent bend in it. Axle wasn’t in the best shape when I got the kart, bent and repaired (sledge hammered) into submission on a few occasions prior to my tenure as the karts owner.
So I’d like to replace it. Its currently a 50mm (medium?) TB Kart OEM axle. TB quoted me $270 plus shipping which seemed pretty steep. I’m going to stay with a 50mm as I’ve heard rumors of those with my chassis who changed to a 40mm and said they wished they didn’t.
What options do I have? Seems like a pretty straight forward part to replace without having to pay that much.
