Under UAS rules.

Rotary valve or Reed valve Two-Stroke Cycle Engine or Engines, 230 lbs plus one pound for each cc or fraction of a cc. Multiple engines or cylinders are permissible. 210 cc maximum total displacement.

(So for your kart 334lbs. )


Body Work and Dimensions


a. Opaque body work is to fall within the following parameters; the highest point of any body work is 30 inches measured upward from the ground at the rear axle. It may extend backward at that height as far back as the rear bumper. It is to fall under an imaginary line that begins 30 inches above the ground at the rear axle to the center of the front axle center line. Side boards may extend above that line provided they are made of clear/transparent material that is known not to be prone to shattering. Nose pieces are exempt from these dimensions and may be blended to t body side boards. External body skin must be made from plastic or a composite material. No sheet metal is to be used to fabricate external body skin.

b. No portion of a kart may stick out or protrude in such a way as to get caught on another kart or create a hazard in the event of contact between the karts.

c. All body work, fairings, wings spoilers, etc. must be located in such a manner that it will not trap the driver in the kart in the case of a mishap.
Clarification of UAS Body Work Policy

When body rules first became a consideration of the UAS rules it was solely for the purpose of safety. Since the IKF had the most permissive rules that were accepted by insurance companies, those rules were adopted as guidelines for safe construction. The UAS parts company with the IKF in regards to regulating the level of performance.

To summarize the most important points of the bodywork guidelines;

1. Generally speaking the highest portion of the kart body side panels is no more than 30” from the ground at the rear axle. The body panels may extend rearward no further than the rear bumper. The body panels should fall under an imaginary line drawn from 30 inches above the rear axle to the center of the front axle. It should be noted that some variation from this line is permissible as long as it does not block the vision of the driver, and that is the most important consideration of this guideline.

2. Body skin may not be made from any type of sheet metal or material known to be prone to shattering. Sharp edges are not permitted no matter what material is used for body work.

3. Nose pieces, front wings, fairings are to be designed in such a way that they do not block the driver’s vision or trap the driver in the kart in the case of a mishap, or create a hazard for other drivers.

4. Attention is to be paid to the leading edges of the nose piece and sides to insure that no part sticks out in such a way that it can get easily get caught on another competitors kart.

5. Support posts, spars, braces, etc. are to be made and attached in such a way that they can not puncture a driver in the case of impact with another kart.

6. The race track promoter has the final say regarding the body work that he permits on his/her race track.


The big difference from UAS and IKF is 30 inche tall side boards for UAS and IKF from last years rule book if memory serves me right is 26 inches.

Hi Folks:

I submit; because our open class is pretty much an exhibition class, A.S.K. should welcome these folks to run without modification to their karts. Use the IKF weight for class and let the mods for the wings go. They also have Star 4-strokes that can run the open class. Let them compete as well.

Thanks, I still might lower the wedge. (That will give cameras a view of more than just the back of the kart Very Happy Ok I've been doing a little thinking. I have another chassis in the garage (that our daughter thought she was off road racing in and drove up the light pole in turn four, she got a LOT of air (her and the kart) and earned herself a helicopter ride, another words I'm going to wait a while before i let her drive again) and I have a few yamahas in the garage too. What does super box run besides a 4 hole can. Can I run a jackshaft with clutch or do I have to have an engine clutch. Confused

So I can run a jackshaft but have to run engine clutch. Does this class require an air box?

No Jack shafts! Sorry
If you looked at our stuff in Cruces, that's what we run except no pipe. Has to be the four hole can. We run K&N with prefilters, no air box.

Ok now I've got it, all I need to do is check and see if I have the right can and put one of those messy leaky wet clutches on Crying or Very sad . I know I have jr cans not sure about the 4 hole. Any one have a jr 1 carb, thinking about running my son in the 2 cycle there.
