    Looks like they would have different waist flex characteristics. The Dragon looks pretty standard but I would go with the Taco, it’s won a world championship.

    Not much help, I know.

    Just looking at the frames I would think the Tacho would require more precision on turn in but be smoother through the turn if you can get use to it you’d be fast, where the Dragon would tolerate sawing the wheel, turn in smoother then have some kind of craziness deeper in the turn.

    In Yamaha you are probably good either way. In TAG the Tacho was our favorite for a driver in the 175-180 range while the Dragon with a 135-140 pound driver was just awesome with a Rotax (or TAG). Despite what the frame designs look like, the Tacho drives an awful lot like an OTK kart.

    Both great karts with fantastic workmanship in terms of frames and components.

    (BTW – Have a sweet slightly used Tacho available right now with ALL of the goodies….)
