The Four Stroke Karting Association of NSW has released the first Supplementary Engine Technical Specifications (SETS) document.
“The SETS document is designed to clearly state what you can and cannot do with your Briggs 206 when racing in our series” the association posted on social media.
The SETS document aims to ensure all motors are as identical as possible whilst keeping the category as ‘out of the box’ racing as it can be.
It also allows the association to fix issues as required – examples are:
- Now permitted to weld the exhaust silencer to the header pipe (during endurance competition it had a tendency to come lose)
- The inlet manifold can be supported with a bracket to increase it’s strength.
Modification mantra: UNLESS THESE RULES STATE THAT YOU CAN DO IT, YOU CANNOT DO IT.
“Ensure you all read the document prior to Canberra – much of the document simply lists the engine in THE FORM THAT YOU PURCHASED IT, while allowing you to make some modifications for safety and reliability. It will help you present your kart in acceptable form at scrutineering.”
