Make your dingo go-kart faster through adding features, utilising fuel enhancements and lightening your dingo. Handle the modifications yourself, if experienced in auto repair. By making adjustments and alterations or installing aftermarket items, you can increase performance and raise your go-kart's overall speed to 5 to 10mph.

Instructions

    Replace Go-Kart Items

  1. 1

    Change the battery of your dingo go-kart to improve overall horsepower. Having a strong battery, such as a 12-volt 7.2ah sealed lead-acid battery, generates more power, which enables a dingo to function more efficiently.

  2. 2

    Replace the oil as a way to generate more horsepower. Old oil can gum up a dingo go-kart's engine and make it work harder to compensate for the sludge build up inside. New oil allows the engine to operate smoothly, thus letting the engine increase speed.

  3. 3

    Swap the current engine for a faster, 5 horsepower engine. The addition of a new engine will provide additional horsepower and create smoothness in shifting as well as acceleration.

    Add Fuel Enhancements

  1. 1

    Add nitrous oxide -- a mixture of oxygen and nitrogen -- as a method to boost speed. These compounds, when heated, will split into pure oxygen and nitrogen and provide a momentary jolt in horsepower. Auto retailers sell nitrous oxide. However, due to its explosive potential, stores will not sell nitro kits to individuals under the age of 21.

  2. 2

    Use high-octane gasoline. It costs more than regular gasoline, yet it proves worth the expense. Cheap gasoline, over time, will leave calcium deposits to build up around the fuel intake valves, significantly decreasing your dingo go-kart's horsepower. High-octane gas creates a boost within the engine and allows the engine to maintain efficiency as well as increases overall horsepower.

  3. 3

    Add fuel injection cleaner to the gas tank. This will remove calcium deposits that may have built up within the engine and the injector system of your dingo. The fuel injection cleaner removes the calcium deposit and allows for the distribution of fuel within the engine, thus increasing the power of dingo's engine.

    Lighten Your Dingo

  1. 1

    Shed heavy objects from your dingo go-kart. Many objects on your dingo are not necessary for good handling or performance. An item such as the stock seat, which is metal, can add anywhere from 4.54 to 6.8 Kilogram to your dingo. Removing the stock seat and replacing it with a lighter, smaller carbon fibre seat will lighten your dingo and allow for more speed.

  2. 2

    Lighten the chassis by five pounds through the removal of the dingo's thin metal bumper and using a plastic bumper. Remove parts like pipe mounts and cut off the frames near the torsion bar mount since these items play little roles in the operation and performance of the vehicle.

  3. 3

    Replace the smaller tires with ones with a larger tread, as wide tires will vastly improve grip. Additionally, larger wheels will allow for high-quality performance when going around corners, allowing for an increase in speed.
