    Live 1/2 & 1/2 if Fl. & NH. They race World Formula in NH

    and L0206/Briggs here in Fl. Can I use the same kart/motor set up for both? If not, what is the main difference? I’d like to run in a 4 stroke class both in NH and FL. Any help?

    Thanks

    World Formula and LO206 are certainly different classes.  Both are based around the same block, but the WF makes about 5hp more than a LO206 (which is around 10).  LO206 is a hand built, sealed Briggs Animal, and the WF  has a few upgrades that make the extra power.  You could probably use the same chassis and just swap the engines out, but you’ll need 2 engines if you want to run in both classes.

     

    This topic will probably interest you.

    You absolutely can use all of the same stuff. The only thing that might be different is rear tire size. A lot of people run 6″ rears in 206. We run 7.10 in world formula in the nhka.

    A few of us from nhka that race world formula are also thinking of heading to Rock Island to race in the 206 class
