Am I nuts?
A little back ground here. My son is going into his 4th season of karting, he’ll be 10 in March. He’s been in 4 stroke all along and will primarily be focusing on briggs cadet this year with some regional and possibly a national round along the way.
Anyway, I’ll be picking up a new chassis for his Briggs since thats his main focus, and was going to sell off his old Parolin Cadet chassis, but once I put it on the surface plate, I realized the frame is absolutely perfect, not a bend or twist in sight, so my mind started thinking about getting my hands on a Mini Rok engine and building the Parolin up and letting him have a taste of that as well.
If I went that route, what can I expect for engine maintenance to run at a club level? Can the maintenance be done myself or are the Rok engines sealed like Rotax used to be? (I ran Rotax myself like 20 years ago).
Any other 2 stroke specific maintenance that I should consider after doing only 4 stroke for the last 3 years?
Just to recap…am I nuts for considering doing both classes?
