RSGP125 BUILD2

May 6, 2013

I swapped the Honda NX4 RS125 tailpiece from my 4 stroke onto its rightful home on the RS125 chassis.


A few NX4 RS125 expansion chambers also turned up on my door this morning, thanks Jesse! I know they’re not matched perfectly to what I will be doing to the GP engine but Rob has shown that they work well enough to get some great power figures from them. It’s also easier to use an RS one to get it going and rideable instead of stuffing around building one that is likely to be crap. I do plan to build a few in the future though…

Here are some more photos from the Tokoroa GP 2013. I cannot emphasis how awesome this event was, such great competition!

Tokoroa GP 2013

April 27, 2013

Wow, what an awesome weekend that was! That was my first time visiting Tokoroa and it’s such a fun circuit, although hard on the body into those down hill sections. Huge thanks to the organisers, time keepers, flaggies, and everyone who drank beers with us on Saturday night. Congrats to everyone who raced and those who triumphed. The GP looked fierce, I was nervous before qualifying and I wasn’t even in the race!

I just wanted to point out that there were TEN, yes TEN Honda RS chassis’ at the GP (including a RS250) and not including the GPR diesel which is pretty much a RS. That’s more than a nationals round I believe…

Cheers to Glen for showing me a few improving lines during the track walk and to Cully for letting me pervertedly handle his RSGP125. On that note:

On the weekend the 2013 F4 GP was held at Tokoroa Kart track. This is a simple walk through the camp ground/pit-lane on Saturday followed by some practice laps by the F4 GP class. There will be some more video of the fierce race to come. There were TEN, yes, 10 Honda RS chassis’ at the GP this year. This included one RS250 and one NX4. That is more RS’ than the National 125 rounds!
