A radiator with a hole cannot be repaired
Owner of New Line Racing, leader in the production of quad and kart radiators
Well done!

If, on the track, a radiator is struck by debris that creates a hole in the radiating mass, the damage can almost always be fixed. In itself, this is not difficult to do, but it is essential for it be done by expert, competent and not improvised hands. In New Line, we often fix radiators with holes, but it is important that customers send us the damaged parts without first trying to fix them directly: the use of glue and unsuitable products nullifies the effectiveness of the welding on the radiant mass.

Despite what one might think, the construction of a 60 Mini engine crankcase is very complex even when looking at engines with less expert eyes. More than that of a KZ engine. The main difference is in the cooling fins, elements that have a heat dispersion task in a 60 cc engine. The fusion of these fins is rather complicated and requires more work, with a consequent increase in manufacturing time. For these reasons we can say that, at least as far as we at TM Racing are concerned, the 60 Minikart engine has a more complex crankcase than the KZ engine.
