kt 100 swap to gx 160
I bought a TO 32 chassis with a kt 100 engine on it. Iwhat to put on a gx160 4 stroke, because my 16 year old daughter wants to try racing. Would this chassis be okay? I have engine & ordered a engine mount for same. Is there anything else I should know. Im new to all this. Thanks

A to 30 is most likely the better choice for a light weight driver. The TO 32 is the heavier tubing. The only big issue will be to make sure your sprocket size is geared for clearance of the rear bar behind the seat. It might change your front driver size in order to get the correct gear ratio.

Iwill check this. There is keyway where sprocket goes,but looks tight on clearance.Thanks for response

The trick will be when you place the split sprocket on the gear carrier. That is all I can add at this time. I think it is possible.

Your right I checked with 60 t sprocket & chain (maybe ok tho ) I ordered a 15 degree mount. Ihope it will be ok Thanks for pointing this out. Should be in Friday
