I applaud any “American” effort to compete and have long supported American chassis efforts in my day. Margay, Comet Eagle, iKart, Coyote and Ionic Edge should all be supported in order for them all to thrive, grow and prosper. Too bad karts from Emmick, Nelson, Burton, Trackmagic, Mako Shark, Cobra, and many others failed to survive during the import onslaught. The imports took over for a simple reason, they are faster but much more expensive. Also these imported flexi-flyers are more easily disposable due to their paper thin tubing, therefore costs are much less to manage for newbie karters to afford. LO206 seems to be a great tool to overcome the cost restrictions of entering this family sport.
At the risk of sounding redundant, I applaud you for your applause! I also agree with your assessment of the 206 class. I am part of a manufacturing team right here in Noblesville, IN that is in production of a 206 chassis right now. Not only is it made in America, it is almost 100% made in one shop. If you are interested in any more information, please contact me anytime.
The 206 class could be the avenue for reemergence of homegrown, American ingenuity.
