    hello all, just a quick question..

    in go karting terms, an engine producing 9 hp is likely to be XXX cc?

    Google says 270cc... Not that hard to find out, eh?


    PS: Don't call it 'go karting'...You're not eight years old.

    If you mean 100+cc, yes I would guess so.

    edit: I guess it varies engine to engine too

    Results seem to vary from 270cc back down to 150cc, engines :rolleyes:

    So how's this all work, are you talking about the rules for some sanctioning body? I've got a 175 cc 17.5 HP engine in my kart.

    Any of you kart regularly? I've only been a couple of times in the last few years, both at Thurrock's outdoors track, and it's been awesome.

    If someone were to organise this... ;)

    I used to do a bit of twin 125's endurance racing in wales, cost too much for me though, the lads still do it.
