As at December 2016 he 'AAR Special' exists as a rolling chassis, based on the usual 25 x 75 X 1.6 RHS (1" x 3" in imperial terms).

Riding on Michelin Gazelle tyres fitted to Honda clone rims and customised rear hubs all round with caps. The rear axle is splined connected to a Peerless Gear differential. The Honda GX200 has been modified - mikuni carburettor and custom exhaust. Brakes are hydraulic disc brakes.

Dimensions follow the Stevenson's CK formula - leaf springs, beam axle front end etc., wheelbase is 1770 mm and chassis ~ 2400 mm. At it widest point the outside diameter is 600 mm but narrows fore to 480 mm and aft to 425 mm. The engine is forward/over the rear axle mounted behind the seat. The fuel tank will be mounted separately for space and aesthetics.

Sharp looking....Question, using the Peerless Gear differential are you doing so to obtain better control on turns and such? Also could you list the model/part number of the Peerless Gear differential you have shown in the pics?Thanks,WH

Hi William, thanks for your comment. I got the idea for the differential off the Vintage Kart Co cycle-kart, and whilst I haven't driven a cycle-kart, technically as you elude too it makes sense. We purchased it through Northern Tools, item # 1369; Heavy Duty 38". We had the axles cut and splined to suit the Honda hubs. My friend, Darryl is an engineer (who builds and races Super Karts) so the Cyclekart is all credit to him. For instance it is running dual hydraulic discs to place even braking (torque) force on the differential. Hope that is of some help. Kind Regards Robert
