Description: Single cylinder, 2 valve, OHV 4 cycle engine.
Combustion chamber volume: 26.5 cubic centimeter minimum, with piston at TDC, using prescribed procedure. The Liquid CC check is the official check (IF THE ENGINE FAILS THE CC LIQUID CHECK AT ANY TIME DURING THE TECH PROCEDURE IT MUST BE CALLED ILLEGAL)
Cylinder Head Requirements: Must be OEM casting only. Porting and / or grinding are not permitted. Valve seats are two angles 45 degrees valve face and 30 degrees top relief. Intake seat maximum ID .897”, Exhaust seat maximum ID .862”. Outside face of valve may not be below floor of combustion chamber (i.e. don’t sink the valves). Stock head bolts only, must have four. Head gasket/s maybe after market, must be of stock configuration, gasket thickness is a non tech item. Depth check between the valves, front to back and side to side may not vary by more than .005” max. No copper or aluminum gaskets allowed. Any stock configuration exhaust gasket allowed no other sealer.

(Additional check for valve springs – Each spring is to be checked using a .750”height by .800”width plate gauge and a .250” (square) no-go gauge to check the center spacing of the spring coils while inserted in the plate gauge.) Prescribed check procedure as follows – Insert the spring in the .750” X .800” plate gauge (spring must be centered in plate gauge and must fit inside of gauge with the ends of the spring wires perpendicular to the plate ). Once inserted in the plate gauge take the .250” no-go gage and check the center coil spacing on both sides. The .250” no-go gauge must be parallel to the spring wire and perpendicular to the center of the spring when checking. The .250” no-go must pass check on at least one side of the spring. This check is to be performed after the 10.8/lb check and .071 max wire diameter check have been performed.

Important Note: Any attempt to increase the RPM ’s of the BOX STOCK PROJECT, Stock Classes, engine (example: stronger/non stock valve springs or decreasing exhaust restriction from stock levels) is strictly prohibited. Should this be allowed or preformed will mandate the use of an aftermarket Billet style flywheel for high RPM use (Super Box). ARC currently has these parts in their product line (part #’s 6618/6619)and they are approved by AKRA for use, others may become available as demand increases. Note: Under no circumstances is this type of flywheel allowed in the Box Stock (Stock Classes), Stock Flywheel ONLY. No other alterations to or from stock components are allowed.
2012 ENGINE SPECIFIC TECH SHEET FOR BP (Builder Prepared) 6.5 OHV
The intent of this class is to give those who want to make an incremental move up from Box Stock Project or a change from stock flathead a class of their own with horsepower similar to the flathead "stock" classes that are becoming increasingly expensive. The rules allow a builder into the engine, but are written with the intent of making it possible for the average person to build his/her own engine.
Fuel: Methanol ONLY
Approved Engine: 6.5 OHV 196cc clone engine modified only according to BP OHV Engine Spec. Tires are track/series option.

1. Weight must be secured to the kart frame with at least a 5/16 bolt and cotter-keyed or double nutted. Mounting weights to the rear bumper or nerf bars prohibited. It is highly recommended that any bolt on weights be painted a contrasting color for visibility purposes.
2. Each kart must have a complete set of nerfs and bumpers built to meet or exceed current WKA standards.
3. All karts must have a solid side panel extending from no more than 1 ½ " from behind the front tire and no more than 1 ½ " from the front of the rear tire. No more than 2" of the rear tire can extend past the side panel. All body panels must have an edge designed so as to not cause injury in a crash. Aluminum panels must have a rolled or covered edge.
4. An IFK type wedge body is allowed. Body can be 30" tall provided that does not impair the driver's vision or create an unsafe condition for other competitors. Total width of kart can be no more than 50 inches.
The track reserves the right to judge the fitness or safety of any kart. Any kart judged as unfit will not be permitted on the track until repairs or replacements can be made to the kart.
Noise: In an attempt to curb noise, all karts will be required to run WKA approved mufflers. All 2 cycle karts will be required to run silencers or to deflect the exhaust downward to the track surface by either adding an extension to the expansion chamber to by modifying the expansion chamber placing the exhaust port downward.
Numbers are REQUIRED on ALL 4 sides of your kart. Please make sure you have legible numbers showing on all sides of your kart including the REAR of your kart as well. We do use the rear of your kart for scoring as well. Help make our scorers job easier and also lessen the chance of not being scored correctly.
