Rotax has designed a unique engine concept (MAX) for race karts, which is offered in different performance configurations.
The MAX engine is a liquid cooled 125 cc,[two-stroke] engine with a balance shaft, integrated water pump, electric starter and centrifugal clutch. The combination of onboard electric starter and the centrifugal clutch simplifies the operation of the engine therefore this concept is called TaG (Touch and Go).
With the much lower rpm level of the MAX engines they can run on just 2% oil and also the durability compared to other race kart engines is much higher.
The 125 Junior MAX engine (20.4 hp, recommended for juniors from 13– 16 years), the 125 Junior MAX engine can be simply downgraded to the 125 Mini MAX engine configuration by means of an intake and exhaust restrictor (13.6 hp, recommended for kids from 10 – 13 years). It can also be downgraded to the 125 Micro MAX engine configurations by means of a different exhaust and radiator (6.8 hp, recommended for kids from 8 – 10 years). A 125 Junior MAX engine can be also upgraded by means of a cylinder with exhaust valve to a 125 MAX engine configuration (28.5hp, recommended as of 16 years). The top line of the MAX engine family is the 125 MAX DD2 (24 kW, recommended as of 16 years, has a two speed gearbox and a chainless drive system).
With the MAX engine concept BRP-Rotax has revolutionized the racing kart market and more than 50.000 customers are the best confirmation of this success story.
