    If Rossi still had the nod I would have picked him, just in support.

    I have bleed brakes for most Euro karts, I have never seen a bleeding nipple similar to what you see on a car, typically in the brakes I run there just screws.  I wasn’t sure if using a vacuum bleeder kit would be better.

    I have seen the same setup as pictured, problem is for me is that a car is to low to the ground so the setup does not work.  If you use a truck or SUV why not just put it inside.

    After running several years without I ran a couple races last year with a metal full width bumper.   I didn’t see a advantage in fact I could have easily used it as side battering ram, not that I would be it could.

    David,

    The biggest expense would be tires. I never had to buy tires, the regional and national series locally both ran different tires, so I would have to have a couple sets of tires, and rain tires for each race weekend. 5 sets x$200 is $1,000, other then a clone engine I haven’t purchased much during the past 3 seasons.

    I think the expense of all the different rules, series, and classes is a big turn off.  Hopefully some others will chime in, but are these regional and national events only to folks that are dedicated and are after competition? Does it turn from hobby to Pro driving at nationals? is it any fun?

    Perhaps someone can clarify the progression club-regional-nationals, and why someone would be motivated to do this? Even when there were national events at my local track, I did not race because it would require my entire budget for the season times 4 (for one day). More than likely, I would be a backmarker, because I think there is such a differential in commitment and money. Clone hit it big because people dusted off their old chassis and put a $100 motor on their kart. As mentioned above every local track had different rules, whether it is an AKRA or WKA motor it changed yearly. What I found to be the biggest detractor and what ended up killing clone was all the manufacturers pushing people to continually buy items during the season. I have a 206 and seem that people are buying in, but when the next generation 206 hits the market (next year?), will it be a clone/flathead situation all over again. How are you supposed to grow a sport when you have to spend $5k+ in new equipment each year? Look at what Chumpcar and Lemons racing has done, they have bigger followings then SCCA and NASA which have been around for years, all based upon budget racing, why can’t karting do that?
