Hey folks. My son (early 20’s) and I are just getting into karts. We picked up a used Coyote for CIK/LO206 and I have a few questions about rear track width. The kart has a 40 inch, 1-1/4 inch axle. With 7.75 wheels on a 2.5 inch offset so my rear track ends up at 50-3/8 inches. Looks like the longest axle Coyote sells is 42 inches and I see Comet Karts sells a 44 inch (only in .190 wall thickness) .
As per the AKRA rules, American axles require a snap ring on each end so I don’t think I can use spacers and slide the hub out to get extra track width. My questions are are my assumptions/rule interpretation correct? Are my options for widening rear track width limited to axle length?
