Rave Motorsport's Armstrong Superkart Engine
Rave Motorsport are manufacturers of the Armstrong 250cc Tandem Twin race engine. This engine is being developed for use in Superkart Racing, offering a new, direct & readily available alternative to the Rotax 256 engine. These engines are modern versions of Armstrong's Factory Grand Prix racing motorcycle engines, as last used by the Factory in 1985, although they have been modified and improved for reliability and power delivery.
Armstrongs engines were their own development of the 256 Rotax but features horizontally split crankcases, variable crankshaft set ups and improved barrels and cooling.
The engine in the picture is our original 1984 Factory machine (Armstrongs final development) and is for illustration purposes only. The new Kart engines feature individual cylinder heads.
We have been in contact with the British Superkart Association who are kindly helping us to gain homologation with the MSA
Rave Motorsport's Adjustable Limited Slip Differential.
We are currently working closely with Kingston University to develop our radical new motorsport Limited Slip Differential.
This invention is now "Patent Pending" and offers the advantages of being fully adjustable for "rate of attack" or "ramping angle", but unlike all other after market differentials this one does not need to be taken out of the axle and stripped down to do so, reducing vehicle down time and offering individual set up & tuning unique to the car & driver.
It also has the potential to be adjusted dynamically by the driver, whilst in motion !!! Watch this space!
We can manufacture and/or improve wherever possible, any current LSD clutch plate.
Here is an example of a Toyota 4X4 that Richard designed a Diff Lock / LSD Traction System for, for his last company. It is a Jankel Armouring LRPV, designed for the Middle East.. a much better put together vehicle than the Land Rover Wolf.
