  Michael at Adams Motorsports Park Hondas never break.  Sort of those famous last words.   Since the last time of messing with the kart, I thought it was just bad gas.  So changed the gas, got the carb stack up of gaskets right. It seemed to take throttle ok off the ground. The pull starter was looking a little worse for wear, so I ordered a new one, along with some gaskets.  Getting ready to go on track.

Michael in his Top Kart Kids kart at Adams Motorsports Park We met up with Mike and Krista Kojima at Adams Motorsports Park on March 13th.
