What do you get when you cross and Formula A with a Super KF and then add some steroids to the mix? Well BRC Engineering, famous for their 250E Superkart Engines, seem to have the answer. They have been developing a special 150cc direct drive KF style engine for the North American dirt karting market, and it looks awesome! It’s a KF style 150cc engine with a power valve, however it isn’t in TaG configuration making it far less complex than a KF. Is this the route KF should have gone in the first place? The clutch chaos that plagued KF in 2007 and 2008 would have certainly been avoided.
First dyno runs suggest 45hp+, and with further developments we can only imagine how powerful this engine could be!
Check out some shots of the first development engine. In the picture the engine is using a 30mm KF carb and KF Exhaust

With a possible market in the normal sprint karting scene we’ll keep you updated with further developments of this engine.
