Thanks for the great info Jon! That pretty much nails exactly what I wanted to know! . based on what I can tell from posts around this forum I think I will be leaning towards an lo206 kart.. I’ll try and find a kart shop close by and hopefully get some info there too..
Another very newb question I have is.. Can chassis vary in shape and size within a single race or are most tracks pretty strict when it comes to what kind of chassis you can bring out?
