can i make a 2-3 hp motor go faster with a 35 sproket at the axle and 72 tooth at the motor????

no, you cant make the motor ( engine ) go faster,, you can make the axle spin faster by puting a small sprocket at the axle,, or a larger one at the engine. You give up torque,, but can gain speed

You can also unrestrict the small motor and pull the gov. off. its the little fan thing that makes the motor restrict itself. smaller sprocket up front is like bigger sprocket in the back. like was said before more teeth in back give you more torque, less give you more speed. it all depends on what your using the gocart for. your best bet is to get a 10 or 15hp motor. you can get tons of hop up parts for them like methanol carbs, port polish heads, so on. have fun

get a big motor like a 15 horse then port and polish it, get cromed rings, drill out the exhaust pipe, hotter spark plug, 7mm spark plug wire, make the air filter a little different for more air, and if you do it right you can hook a propain tank to the carberator which will give a lot of boost.

you can pull off the govenor, bigger main drive gear(on clutch) and a bigger second drive gear(on axle), bigger tires on back, slightly bigger manifold and bigger carb, bigger valves, stiffer valve springs (so they don't float at high RPMs), run higher octain gas, enlarge the jets, better air filter, higher performance piston(lighter), drill out exhaust for better exhaust flow, stronger magneto, make sure you have good gas flow

me and my friend put ram air on his 5 horse motor by taking radiator tube, funnel, clamps, and a rag. What you do is take the radiator hose and put it on the carb and clamp it on there then put the funnel at the end and clamp that on there to then you will want to fasten it to your frame so it does not bouce around and fall off then you put the rag in the funnel so no dirt gets into the motor and use something like fine screen to put over the rag to hold it in. You want it to face toward the front of what ever you have it on so the air gets forced into it.

You can put on ram air with a fan from a furnace. all you do is take a short peice of radiator hose then clamp it onto the carberator and take the fan and put it onto the radiator hose and calmp it on then what you are going to is get a small V belt and 2 wheels for the V belt, one of the wheels needs to go onto the crank shaft and one on the fans shaft then put the belt on it(make sure belt is the right length and width). Then make sure you fasten the fan to something.

Try to have the gas tank above the carberator so it gets a better flow and make sure your gas tan can breath.

how do you make a 3hp gocart go faster.

-- samuel (, May 18, 2004.

Jonny you would burn out the clutch and never move with such a gear ratio. the mathematics requiered would baffle a five year old but if you are older than 10 years old you should be able to just look at other go-carts and ask someone with an I.Q. above that of a rock he'll tell you GET THE FUCKIN' HELL AWAY FROM ME DUMBASS!

i think the guy above this comment is probably about 10 years old himself and just got his playstation taken away from him. you told him to talk to people about the problem, well that's just what he did. it's called the internet, stupid.
