Hey guys, im kinda new to the perfomance briggs scene and i have would like some info on my ideas. my grandmother has had this briggs fun power gokart for all the grandkids to use and it might come into my possession soon. i want to make it a dirt track racer and I want to get as much power out of it as i can. I was thinking of stroking it, getting a cam, and doing something with the head. Does anybody have any suggestions on how to get the most out of this little engine?

Jimi,
      I want you to know that we LOVE you but modifying an engine for an application that isn't designed to handle more performance is not a good idea.  I just can't recommend doing any modifications because of that.  I hope you can understand.  Enjoy time with your grand kids!

Just out of curiosity, what is the point of making performance parts for 5 horsepower engines then? those parts were designed to handle the power. im not looking for something crazy im just looking to get a little more torque without buying a different engine.

That's a fair curiosity to have.  

Racing is completely different than your backyard.  In racing you have sanctioning body rules and safety guidelines, an entire infrastructure of officials and workers to enforce these rules for the betterment of their racers.  You have tracks that meet and are designed with safety standards built over decades of technology and knowledge.  You also have vehicles designed for the performance of the engine guidelines put in place by the organization.  

There are more differences but this gives you at least some idea to answer your curiosity.

Thanks for thinking about using our products, for stopping by our website, and for asking the questions.
