doing all the maintenance for the car and going through it before my first trip out. Just checked the battery and had it charged and it turned out good. Going to change all fluids, spark plugs, clean the air filter.

What fluids and filters do you KSC guys recommend?

thanks,

I go all synthetic and change fluid and fram filter every trip.

I have knN filter. With a prefilter.

Few things to always check.

Chain tension. You want if I remember correctly( it's been 2 years since I drove mine) a finger width of play if u pull from the center of the chain area.

Always bring a chain link tool kit. Broke a few chains my first few times out. Was a hassle. I never leave w out the tool and a spare chain.

Always oil the chain at the beginning of each day of your trip.

When driving. Never park facing uphill. If you have to circle back around and face down hill. Or at worst on flat. The starting hard from a stop is a sure fire way to break a chain or a tranny. But most likely chain. Which is another reason hayabusa buggies are great.

Always clutch in when landing a jump. Or match wheel spin with speed.

Slide. Slide everywhere and make your passenger puke. These cars can drift at crazy fun speeds.

Pretty much what he said, except we NEVER oiled our chains, and I never broke one in the 4 seasons I had my cars! They usually last about 1 season, then I swap them out. Oh, and swap all of it (chain and both sprockets) at the same time. They all wear together. If you change just a chain, you will wear stuff out fast, or even break teeth or chains (since it wouldn't be pulling on all teeth at the same pressure...if that makes sense).

Well, back in the day it was as easy as calling up Brian and ordering them. Now...I have no idea. I heard he's hard to get ahold since he is out of town most of the time. Hopefully someone else can chime in on where to get them.

I would think much like ordering a primary and main drive sprocket for a street or dirt bike, look at number of teeth, dia. of sprocket, bolt pattern, length, width, and number of links in chain, you should be able to order through Cycle Gear for best pricing. (they also discount 10% for law enf., fire, and military. Good luck and safe duning with the new car, I've duned with many of the old KSC group.

You can get sprockets from Tom pro design. Look on his web site for phone number. He also has them on eBay.

What Jeff said ^^ Sand sticks to the lube = bad. 6 seasons with my car and never broke or trashed a chain and never lubed them once.

Here is a picture of the rear with the newer bracing.

Brian King is pretty much hands off these days. He no longer has time since he started working his other job. He is working in Texas last I heard. Jeff Craig pretty much took over for him and does all repairs and maintenance for the KSCs.

Congrats on the KSC! GREAT CARS!! If I ever return to the sand, I will buy another one.

I have never broken a chain yet either and I drive the piss out of my car. Trying to hang with the Funco/subj is hard to do. My car runs great and fresh chain sprocket and lube cv's every season and you should be gtg. I never throttled down from a dead stop which is very hard on chains and cv's. But I hammer down when in 2nd or 3rd, down shift in the corners and hammer down again.

http://sprocketspecialists.com/ for the sprockets...If you call them up and tell them what you have, they probably will know exactly what you need as they've made them before for king cars - if not, they'll just need to know how many teeth (your current sprocket most likely has it stamped on it somewhere, size (most likely 530 / same as chain size), and bolt pattern...I don't have a king car but the bolt patter is probably the same as a 930 CV on those cars? - it is for mine (Sand Bullet). Tom Pro is a rip off for his sprockets...Also, aluminum sprockets last longer than steel for me. I get an aluminum 2 piece and it last me at least 2 seasons.

Ebay for the chain. DID 530 ZVM-X chain...

http://www.didchain.com/chainSpecs.html - Note is has the highest tensile strength of all the 530 chains is the ZVM-X.

Can someone with a King measure the diameter of the CNC master cylinder on the clutch pedal.....My King is stored in Glamis, and although I've found the correct master cylinder from CNC, there is a 5/8" and a 3/4". I want to buy one and swap out during the next trip in a couple of weeks. Could someone let me know that diameter of that master cylinder? I also plan to swap out the slave cylinder to keep my clutch pedal from fading during our runs.

Thanks in advance for any help!!!
