Kiddie Kart

The Shaller “Kiddie Kart” is a version of our Single Seater built for ages 4 to 7. In fact, many of the parts are directly interchangeable. One significant difference, however, is that it has a specially modified gear-box to obtain a 20:1 (approx.) final drive ratio with the only one drive belt. This ratio allows the engine to run at a high enough RPM to prevent spark plug fouling and carbon buildup while still only having a top speed of a fast walk. The clutch is designed to slip if the “Kiddie Kart” is prevented from moving.
