Also, for racers that want to update their current 100cc to a state-of-the-art engine package, this engine covers it all,” explains ROK Cup Promotions Director of Operations Garett Potter. “The 100cc air cooled engines have played a big role in the US karting market for many years. This was a must have for us as we continue to work with local clubs to help them build their programs. It is the perfect transition for drivers looking to make the jump into the ROK family.”
