  • Technical Bulletin: Mini Max "Rev-Limiter"

    April 18, 2013

    Rotax Mini Max Rev LimiterThe Mini Max "Rev-Limiter" is required in the Texas ProKart Challenge Series. Josh Smith from Rotax will be at the DKC event with the Rev-Limiters on hand for anyone that needs one.

    The Maxspeed Group distributed the "Rev Limiter", during the premier winter series with great success. The news spread quickly and many of the USRMC series have been asking to mandate the device at their series. This devise has successfully terminated the so called "turbo effect" with little to no major modifications.

    Josh Smith has informed us that Mini Max Rev-Limiters will be required at the US Rotax Grand Nationals and the Pan American Challenge races.


    The device is to be installed in between the wire harness and the ignition coil. It is highly recommended to mount the "Rev-Limiter" using Velcro, and attach it to the side of the ignition coil. Also zip ties can be used as a secondary precaution to hold the device in place. These devices will have to be installed prior to declarations and must be inspected by the scrutineers for serial number and proper mounting.


    The device issued to that kart/driver, must be the same device used for that kart/driver.

  • Important Announcement Regarding Mini ROK Pistons

    Attention: TaG Cadet Competitors, Kart Shops and Engine Builders:

    As many of you know, Vortex has experienced a shortage of pistons for this engine. While they are working hard to remedy the situation, it has created a current hardship for some.

    SKUSA has agreed to allow the use of the IAME Swift piston in this engine as a temporary solution to the problem. If used, it is important for the competitor to advise the event technical staff of its use in a specific engine prior to qualifying.

    When the supply problem is corrected, sufficient notice will be given as to when the Swift piston is no longer allowed.
