    It’s simple: Keep the engine rules like the rest of the country – following the Briggs rule structure that hasn’t changed in the last few years.

    Next, use standard safety rules like WKA uses, and let it rip. Don’t worry if its a CIK kart or a laydown seat. It really doesn’t matter as long as there is a class for racers to get into the sport or come back out of retirement. When you get 20-30 on a grid, then you can start worrying about what chassis rules to follow.

    Remember, this is karting. Make it simple and people will come.

    I have heard that update information regarding the SuperNationals will be forthcoming from Superkarts! USA.

    Here is a more affordable tool : http://cometkartsales.com/Tire-Pryr-Kit-for-5-inch-Wheels.html

    Otherwise, it’s all hard labor. Some use screwdrivers, others can just do it by hand.

    Yes, making the jump from indoor karts to competitive karts can be tricky, thus why you want to start at the entry level, then jumping right up to the elite level.

    Yes, but instead of looking at ebay, look at the classifieds here, or just buy it right from the shop so you know there is no question that the engine is what it is, and you can get your parts right from them – http://cometkartsales.com/Briggs-Local-Option-206-Engine.html

    Your best solution is to find out what entry level classes either of the tracks have. Going with a Rotax is a big learning curve, both on and off the track.

    Here is a local shop – http://www.fulltiltracing.com/

    Or you can also look at – http://www.ovrp.net/

    Quick advice, don’t put a $4,000 engine on a $500 chassis

    Personally, that Corsair is for a Briggs LO206 or Clone class, something to just get you started in the sport. It’s cheap because parts are probably non-existent. I have heard of the name, but not sure who or where you would get parts that fit the brand.

    Are you brand new to the sport?

    If so, LO206 is probably a better direction for you. You could get this kart, put on an engine for about another $1,000, and have some fun.

    Otherwise, I would look into something more recognizable if you are going toward the Rotax route. You will also want to find a local kart shop to work with, as you will likely have questions and need to buy parts.

    Hello Alex, where did you find it? That’s the best way to understand what you are looking at is if we can see it too.

    What are you looking to do with the kart – 4-Cycle, 2-Cycle, TaG racing?

    Where do you plan to race?

    Here is another option, which is now legal in SKUSA and other sanctioning bodies http://ekartingnews.com/2014/03/06/industry-news-hegar-manufacturing-offering-quick-start-for-honda-cr125-engines/

    Watching last night’s NASCAR races is much like watching a reality show…the whole Danica/Hamlin discussion looked very familiar.
