That is really a broad question.Karts differ from cars in that the size of the tires really make a difference the engine ,cam,pipe,carb.,clutch,and most important DRIVER!On a 1/8th mile we run13tooth clutch driver and any where from a 62to a66 sprocket.The main thing to remember is on a Briggs kart engine is One rear tooth on rear sprocket is worth 200r.p.m.That is quite a difference in something that only weighs 300lbs. with a driver.Hope this helps.
