The fact is that there are relatively few “older” karts that have been set up and maintained properly.

Many people mistake “worn components” for “worn chassis” and rather than squaring/aligning their old chassis and replacing the typical wear items (eg: kingpin bearings) they buy something new.

A well¬†prepared/maintained chassis that’s even several seasons old can easily win club races with a good driver.
