I just want a little more acceleration and top end. I would like to see 30 but would love to see 40. But then I'll have to redo the suspension. I'm already working on better brakes.

I forgot to say. I got it going 21 on gps now. Stock. I tried the torque spring and it took my top end down to 12 mph. So I put the stock one back in.

If you want decent power, get a 440 clone from VC. You should be able to get at least 30mph. It's probably the biggest bang for the buck besides a used Vanguard.

This guy said he has a 550 in it but all I'm finding for the price are these older ones. I figure I'll do a rebuild on a older one and bigger carbs?

It's up to you what you do, but most snowmobile swaps have very little torque unless you rev the heck out of the motor. They aren't much fun to ride.

Sorry, I didn't mean to say the carts aren't fun to ride.

What I should have said was that it can get frustrating to always have to be running at higher rpms to get any real performance. It's just the nature of a 2-stroke motor. With the larger snowmobile motor, it will create alot more noise.

I'm going to call my machinist on Mon and see what he can do with my stock motor first. I'm having a hard time finding a good deal on a engine. If I can get a few more hp and a lot higher rpm's then it should be good enough to hit 30 mpg. Somehow other guys on here hit higher than 30 with little to no mods. I doubt it

If you have doubts about how that can happen, you should start a thread and ask how they are doing it.

I've had 3 carts. I modified the first one to be able to run almost 45mph. The second one would run about 35. My current cart will also run about 35, but it will snap your head off getting there.

There are alot of smart guys on this forum, with alot of great ideas. All you need to do is ask specific questions, and they are more than happy to tell you what they know.
