  • Beside this, is 5 hp enough for a go kart? The best go kart engine for kids should sit right around 5-7 hp, have a 3/4″ shaft, and fit a centrifugal clutch or 30 series torque converter, and has a standard bolt pattern for easy mounting. Honda GX200 the king. The Honda GX series engines are built well, last long, but are a little expensive.

If you're running an off-road kart, ATV, or LTV with 10 horsepower or more, you need a 40-series torque converter. These are rated for 8 horsepower minimum and 25 horsepower maximum. The 40-series torque converters have a 1:1 final drive ratio. Drive clutches are available for 3/4', 1', and 1-1/8' diameters.

For example, the HPM3000 motor here (3kW) shows a rating of 10Nm at 5000rpm. With a 2:1 reduction gear, that would give 2500rpm with 20Nm torque, more than adequate for this (x4). That power is going to be mostly overcoming drag. To achieve 60mph from 15kW, the cart will need a drag area of 1.24 square metres.

A strong plate will cost individually around $10. Finally, you will need either a belt or a chain. The chain runs from $12 to $20 whilst the belt runs from $20 to $30.

Measure from one side of the plate to the opposite side. If you’re running a standard torque converter the diameter will either be 6-inches, 7-inches, 7.5-inches or 8.5-inches. STEP 2. Measure your driven pulley diameter.

Just check out this all-electric go kart. Its 15 horsepower output might not seem that wild—until you realize those horses bring 54 lb-ft of torque with them. Yeah, that's a lot.

So, how do you adjust a torque converter on a go-kart? The short answer is that you’ll need to adjust the spring on the torque converter by moving it to one of the pre-drilled and numbered holes. As you know, a torque converter is a Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT) and it’s able to automatically adjust the gear ratio between the driven pulley and the jackshaft, depending on the engine’s rpm.

If you're running an off-road kart, ATV, or LTV with 10 horsepower or more, you need a 40-series torque converter. These are rated for 8 horsepower minimum and 25 horsepower maximum. The 40-series torque converters have a 1:1 final drive ratio. Drive clutches are available for 3/4", 1", and 1-1/8" diameters.

With the 7" driven clutch the low speed drive ratio is 3.13 and the high speed drive ratio is 1.40. Comet 30 Series Torque Converter System (Asymmetrical) Comet 30 series torque converter system is for 2 or 4 cycle engines up thru 8 hp. The model 30 uses a 3/4" top width asymmetric belt.

When the engine is running, its speed is measured in revolutions per minute. So, 3,000 RPM means the crankshaft turns 3,000 revolutions per minute. Knowing your gear ratios tells you how many times your wheels turn for every turn of the engine in any gear.

Yeah my initial idea was similar to that, but my kart goes around 30+, so I don't think that'll work out. I've taken a look at some torque sensors but, but havnt really found anyone interfacing them with arduinos etc

A five to twelve-year-old chassis will range in price from $500 to $1,000. This is without engine. Adding a new engine will cost approximately $600. Included is a new 6.5 HP Honda engine with the needed hardware to get it bolted to the kart and hooked to the drive wheels.
