Nice, those rims look great. Scalded Dog are you running tubular LCA’s? Those rims look a little wide for any tight turning radius.

Yes,I have the FFR LCAs. My wheel/tire combo should be good, 95 Cobra with 245/45/17 9' rims. I triple and quadruple checked with the FFR guys and several guys on the forum. I hope I'm o.k.

Also, those goofy center caps are history. I have skake heads, but may try to fabricate a set with the Cobra logo.

Looking good mate. The great thing about those bullit wheels is you can show off the Cobra brakes which look awesome!

I am sooo jealous of all you guys that have your go-karts already! I just got my build manual and I have to be happy with that!

Thanks guys,
Between work and the holidays coming up I'm not going to get much done. Hopefully that week after xmas I can knock out a bunch of stuff.

Hind Sight, just cleaned the shop, it was a mess. I just throw tools and parts everywhere when I'm working and have to take time every week or so to clean up.

Cobrajose, I saw yours the other day, we also have the same tires. No problem with the center caps so far? I hate those "R" center caps. I have these to put on with a snake head.


They look better in person. Someday I may fabricate a set with the FMS coiled Cobra. I don't think FMS replacement center caps will fit my wheels. I got my wheels from customwheelsmarket.com they were great guys to deal with, very knowledgable. The anthricite bullitts they sell will take a FMS replacement cap no problem, but the chromes won't.

Hey Perry,
Yea the Anthricites were back ordered till January. Hopefully this is not too much bling. I tried to buy the same wheels you had from FFR but they wouldn't have worked with a SN95 rear (wrong backspace)
You got that motor fired up yet?

Sometimes I wish that I had gotten the chrome finish. Yours look awesome! Here is a pick of mine in the gray finish. I have since added spinners.

SD, those look great. Extend that passenger footbox now while you can. I wish I had done it but thought I'll never have a passenger. WRONG!
Aloha, Karl
