New to 2-stroke. I purchased a used Intrepid chassis with Vortex ROK GP motor. The guy I bought it from was helpful and took me for a very quick once over the kart.
His guidance was to empty the radiator after each session and leave the system dry until my next session. He showed me the drain bolt/plug on the bottom of the motor.
He told me to only run distilled water in the cooling system to avoid track damage if a spill or leak were to occur.
It’s still the start of he season in Canada and pretty cold and rainy, but when things really start to warm up, my hope is to get out on it at least weekly.
Question - does the radiator/cooling system need to be drained after every day before storing the cart?
Does anyone run anything other than distilled water in their cooling system?
Is there any other maintenance I should be aware of to keep my coolong system operating efficiently?
Many thanks in advance!
