Thank you, Manny! I think the BluCat doesn’t have the front torsion bar. But it is also common for Swiss Hutless to revive kart designs under different names.
UPDATES: I’ve sold the engine. Yep.
K30 engine prices started climbing drastically, usually driven by crazy unlimited all stars builds and a growing popularity in the VKA ranks. The more I drove a vintage kart, the more I’ve heard of enignes blowing up being part of the sport.
You know, the engine popped. Not a big deal, throw some $$$ at it and you’re golden. Well, this is harder to deal with when your engine is a rare motor without parts readily available, which thanks to a heated market may go for as high as $3000!
So the engine is gone, sold for a good price. And might have gone to a museum too, so it will be in a good home. Carb went back home to a dirt outlaw driver, who is very satisfied with it and will be running it with a Parilla SUDAM.
The kart is now hanging on the ceiling of my garage, I’ve nearly sold it to a guy in AUS, but we couldn’t arrange shipping that was reasonable enough.
I might never sell it, it is a really nice frame. If I ever move from my house it would be a nice garage display piece which is ready to race on demand.
One project done, on to the next one.
