IAME "SSE" Super Shifter Engine Package, At 175cc, this engine is a monster, pumping out nearly 50 horsepower - at the undisputed top of the food chain when it comes to 2-stroke shifter go kart performance! Developed with pure performance in mind, the 175cc 'super shifter' engine also provides a 'spec' type package to improve reliability while still remaining at the apex of the class structure. This engine is the 'non-SKUSA' variant, which equips the engine with a float-style carburetor and an electric starter.
The SSE engine is a 2-cycle, single piston engine. The engine is water cooled, and operates with the aid of a reed cage behind the carburetor. Righetti's NOX airbox is the spec airbox for the engine. An Elto silencer is paired with a tuned exhaust pipe with an expansion chamber to air in exhaust flow at higher RPMs.
A dry-disc clutch setup transfers power to the gearbox vs the clutch to get rolling from a stop (for hard launches or from the pits).
Each engine comes as a package with the following components:
- 18-tooth, #428 drive sprocket
- IAME Exhaust Pipe, paired with Elto exhaust silencer
- Onboard electric starter
- Aluminum water pump, milled with flange to bolt to chassis
- Water pump pulley - 50mm (with 2 water pump belts included)
- Dellorto VHSB 36 RD carburetor
- Aluminum Motor Mount, with butterfly clamps to fit 30/32 chassis tubes.
Each engine package is sold separately, with the components associated. For complete installation on a kart, a radiator kit, hose pipes, and components may be necessary.
Note: The "SKUSA Spec" SSE does not have the electric starter, and utilizes a Tillotson carburetor rather than the Dellorto.
