Maranello RS8 – set to change the look of the modern kart?

Maranello have come out with a very radical new design for 2009, the RS8. It features a centrally located rear brake system and 3rd bearing with a floating disc, floating caliper, and floating bearing. The entire frame design is also different to anything else currently on the market. The tubing has a symmetrical design, no rear torsion bar (one fixed tube across the back), and a very interesting front end.

Forum Talk: Rotax Engine Recall and Race Engine Choices

A few interesting threads have developed in the karting forums. One is a thread about an engine recall from Rotax for Junior max engines – some cylinders have been found to be a bit outside of the standard tolerances and Rotax is offering a free replacement to owners of a cylinder that is out-of-spec.

Another discussion which started on Yamaha-KT engine pricing has developed into a discussion about different engines being used in competition – is it more important to go fast or to have close racing – can you have both? Check that thread here.
