Looks rather interesting for the 800cc class

Looks to be the same as the GK-40 that gokartsusa.com is carrying. Looks pretty nice but so far they seem to have some problems.

Oh yeah... I even replied to those threads. I knew it looked familiar.

It looks like it has potential... hopefully the out of the crate qulity problems get worked out.

I purchase one of the roketa GK-40 aka the Typhoon from gokartsusa.com. There were serveral quality issues. The fuel pump was stuck when i recieved it I fixed it but has now failed.
It was easily replaced with a 89 geo fuel pump for $59. There were also a lot of dings and dents(small). It tends to overheat but i think i just need to hard wire the fan to be on all the time. It is also only one wheel drive because of the differental but it has been field tested on West Virginia hill climbs and did very well as long as you did not get stopped. The battery need replace because the china made battery have volts but no amperage. The wiring needs water tight sealed (Silicon and black tape) After about 2 days of work I am overall satified because quality of cource equals price. (you get what you pay for) IT was half the price of a rhino. The kart is very fun and will go about 65-70mph clocked with GPS. Hope this helps!
