I have 6 of them and race them out here in California! You will have so much damn fun with them. I get more of a thrill racing my karts then I do racing my motorcycles believe it or not. Just remember that they can be very dangerous just like anything else and deserve respect. Many people get into them thinking they are like the old home built karts that we built when we were kids , then end up getting hurt (not saying thats u, just speaking in general)!

Let me know if you have any questions about that kart or the engine. U will find the karting community to be very similiar to the boating community, most people at the track are Very willing to help each other out from simple things like putting air in the tires to helping set up the chassis, etc.

BTW, make sure u lube that chain after every session on the track. You will go thru many front gears very quickly if not

Nice, looks like fun, went to a track in Bahrain a couple of years ago, had a blast, the Manager had to give our group a warning that they werent bumper cars. In the end One cart flipped and caught on fire, (driver ok) another Driver, 3 broken ribs. the rest of us, good memories and lots of laughs!
