    Freddy,

    Thank you for your reply. I am looking for a senior KT100 pipe or a HPV-4 kart (both are legal for the club I am racing at) I have a small budget of $1500 for a complete setup.

    I know that the last episode manufactured some drama, but honestly it is the first time I have related to what was going on.  There have been several times where I have had to run to the grid and catch up to to the pack on track. I think what makes kart racing different from car racing is it face paced and is constant working on the kart and making adjustment after adjustment, or in my case trying to fix all that is wrong with it.

    I do not have children and am outside observer of the classes represented in the first episode. My opinion is the show represented what I see at the track and the people that are in the show are represented accurately. I do not feel the character of karting has been thrown in the dirt; because the reality is it is not a cheap and parents want their children to have the best equipment and manufacturers push racers to have the “newest technology” every year. Reading on other forums mainly dirt/oval crowd, they feel karting is being misrepresented and it makes me laugh as a fan of road racing as anytime I mention I like racing in public, people immediately think I like Nascar (which can’t be farther from the truth). I will continue to watch the series, because it is cool to see karts on TV.

    Looking to buy some #219 gears & Chains and gently used Kt100 motor and starter.

    Nobody that wants to buy is even remotely close to me ( I have to sell before I buy) and APSkarting where I purchased goods has closed.

    Stu,

    I plan on doing a gasket change on the Carb, would you suggest changing the gaskets on the engine? It has been sitting for a while but is suppose to be newly rebuilt/blueprinted.

    Roger, I have been following amateur road racing series such as NASA and SCCA as long as I can remember, and they require a license. The past 3 years I have been following and racing in Chumpcar/Lemons, and although they do not require you to have a license (just pay a membership fee), the racing is cleaner (my opinion then NASA/SCCA) and they don’t tolerate BS. I don’t agree with a licensing system, because it just brings more unneeded bureaucracy. Karting is already complicated, Oval racing seems to understand simplicity perhaps karting can follow.

    Darrin, I agree that if the 206 would have beaten the clone it would be a whole different ball game, 206 is certainty gaining traction, but I think people feel the clone sting in my region (In addition to other issues track related). Kt100 has become the class and I requested KPV/HPV clause in the rules with a higher weight class, I plan on running a KPV, although I will miss the simplicity and reliability of the 206.

    I understand why people have positive things to say about a Briggs 206, it is a great engine very reliable. I do not understand why someone would go from a sealed class to pro gas and bypass the WF, which is essentially the same amount of maintenance as a 206 but more HP. Seems as though KT100 would better than going the Pro-Gas, it’s not going to be cheap to have an engine rebuilt to different specs.
    I go to a track that is well known around the karting community, yet each year, I do not know what chassis or what engine I will run. The rule changes are what killing grassroots karting, the 206 is a great engine but it is not much fun when only two other lightweights are circle around a heavyweight. Within a class you have several other classes, light, medium, heavy, senior ect… I feel as though the manufacturers are building everything for those that are running nationals rather than supporting the grassroots.  It is hard for me to believe that as spec as karting is there is no way to equalize the chassis for local racing. I understand that Margay has a 206 package, if I told someone local to join karting and spend $4k to race 3-4 people of those 3-4 people they are in a different weight class so they are faster. They would run to the kart rentals and spend a fraction of the price and not worry about anything other than having fun.
