Did you see Js tubes? He used graphite tubes with a grub screw. Close to what Larc used he said. Looks fragile but its held up so far.

It won't work long the tubes are to narrow. He needs a base something wider than a simple tube. The tubes will wobble after a while needless to say when the kart is moving fast forward. Try what Robert suggested by using a plastic spacer. He'll see better results.

And you don't feel spacers won't do the same thing? You could always run the tube inside the spacer up being spacers are no taller than 1/2 inch. This would give the wire more support.

Nothing much we had a newbie come up with a sleek wing mount that spiked up some chatter. We won't be changing our simple tube desing but "larc" does offer an excellent idea. You won't remember but back in 2007 we had a different way to mount the rear wing. Its similar but "larc" put a twist on it. Looks great I think.

I wanted to follow up in this thread real quick. I did some work today on my kart. I was correct in saying the wing tubes won't work Ceri. They need a base larger than 1/4 inch to work. Caviers are wide but the tubes aren't. If it was me I'd use the nylon spacer and drill a grub screw in that fashion instead of graphite tubing. Graphite may look cool but it won't last. By the way hows Jonathans holding up or has he ran it?

Any pictures of what you came up with Paul? Trying to get a image of what you did and the spacers. Sounds as you took the tubes and inserted them in the spacers?

Oh my, see what you went and started Woody ROLF Hey real quick, I haven't heard anything back from USPS. So what we did was order the piece from one of our companies we work closely with out in Cali. Its no big deal but with Cakeman, the nice guy he was trying to be, $1 and some change is nothing for us to replace. It should be here next week then "I'll personally ship it out to you." Can you or Cavier think of anything else you need prior to shipping the mount?

For those who don't like the tubing on the seat why not use fuel tubing instead? It has to be lighter than alloy or other heavy plastics. Less work to.

Larc your other wing mount arrived. I'll get it out asap as usual. Not sure where the other one went. USPS has not found nor able to tell me where its gone. ROLF.
