much better than Walt has described…

Just curious if you’ve ever raced in an arrive and drive league with 360 bumpers. Not show up and rent a track session but a league. Some of the hardest hits I’ve ever taken in karting.

There are 2 kinds of karts in LO206, gold cup (4 stroke) full bodywork with 50″ rear track and manufactures cup (2 stroke) with CIK bodywork and 55″ rear track. Some places allow both and some only allow CIK karts. If you get a CIK kart you can use it to race Yamaha or TAG at a later time. When you go to the kart shop don’t let them talk you into Rotax, you can thank me later.
