OK here’s my take on it, take it for what it’s worth.

By 2004 imported sprint karts had all but destroyed  US sprint kart manufacturing with Margay being one of the few exceptions. From 2004 to 2008 wholesale prices on imported karts went up nearly 20% a year. Sounds like predatory business practices to me.

Yes I can document this.
