Hi there.  I am running a direct drive kart on a 3/8 mile track with 7 turns.  The gearing on my kart is 10/93.  And this kart will spin the tires coming out of the hairpin.  It has plenty of power.  Its all about the driver on a direct drive kart.  Direct drives love a lot of fuel so you have to constantly keep adjusting the carb to give it some more.  If you are a newbie clutch will be a lot easier to drive.  But direct drive will be faster even with more weight.
