So I might be making the jump from LO206 to X-30. My knowledge base on 2 stroke is pretty non-existent, I’m assuming I’ll need an engine mount and possibly and exhaust hanger. Not sure what is included vs. excluded when you buy the engine.
My chassis is a 2 stroke chassis, with an LO206 on it now. I still plan to run both if possible which I think it is?
X30 will have an outside rear sprocket which is likely different than what your running on the 206.
While anything is possible I wouldn’t plan on swapping from one to the other at the track to try and run 2 classes.
Debating whether to purchase a TB Kart S586 to mate this thing too, and just run two karts. I have a soft spot for TB, it was my first kart, and the only one I know that donates to veteran charities.
“Thank you for your service” is cute, but TB Kart puts their money where their mouth is . . . they are the only chassis manufacturer that does this that I am aware of. Being a combat veteran, that’s important.
I’d just run one kart, on alternating weekends, as long as I could get away with it.
Congratulations! It’s a nice engine. Felix Rovelli from IAME recommends Elf HTX oil. It only looks expensive, a bottle lasts three race days or so. I use 93 octane premium e10 gas, Extron Pro rear sprockets, and DID chains. I’ll let you know how long the O-ring chain lasts, but a plain chain lets you spin the axle for a little while.
For the Temp, it will only monitor one, either water, cylinder, or exhaust since you have the 1t. I use water temp personally, I think it’s the most important, will let you know that your water pump is working and your engine won’t implode. You’ll need the cable as well as a hose connector with the necessary cable connection to screw the temp monitor cable into. Then split the hose in half and attach them to both sides and clamp them with a hose clamp.
If I could only monitor one temperature it would be EGT. If I’ve got a big enough water leak to send the water temperature out of range it’ll show up on EGT too - acting leaner every lap with slower rise and slower cooldown!
