ok. this cart dont seem like it has as much power as it should. all ive done to it was put a new headgasket in it so there shouldnt be any breaking in for it to do. the only other thing i can think of is i mix the fuel to 50:1. i know that that can cause it to not have power. or else put a new top end on it. does any one have any suggestions on what i should do?
Thanks

I'd start with a compression test if you haven't already. I thought you put new rings in when you did the head gasket. If you already checked compression post the results and we'll go form there.

well, i check compression and it is 100 so i guess thats good
i have the fuel mixed at 50:1 so do you guys think that that could be my problem?
