I drove the kart this morning and the shim works fine. I can't tell a difference but the shim for what I know would allow you to change motors in a pinch. The wrap would take longer I would imagine.

Robert said you did something to your end cap? Please share as he wouldn't tell me unless I came out to the track to see it first hand

Looks nice I was wondering why they routed the wires out the side instead of the rear cap. Nice feature.

Creative I must say it beats bending or routing the wires off to the side.

A couple of weeks ago Robert told me he did the same thing. He drilled his but Full Pulls looks more stock as if it was made that way. I like the way the opening for the wires curves with the radius of the cap. It pays to have the big boy tools.

I read his post he used a mill to get that radius. I agree it does look slick the way he cut it out.

What size drill bit do you think I'd need. I don't own a bunch of drill bits or tools. Sears is right down the road from me and they would have what I need to make a hole in the end cap. 1/4 inch you think?

I'm leaving mine the way it is for now. Great idea but I'm alright without it. Knowing me I'd screw it up big time.

Well its not like you can't buy a motor cap from these guys if you mess it up. Its plastic it can't be much. I may go the drill route as you said Elfie. If I do it before you I'll post the drill size. Won't get around to doing much of anything till tomorrow afternoon anyways.

You have a valid point what could go wrong, Your drilling a small hole for wires. I'm thinking a vise and drill would do the trick.
