Thanks for posting this.  I was going to start a post kind of like this but I dont want to start a whole new thread.  Ive raced some tag karts, and some rental karts.  The question I have is, I am looking to get into an “Ignite” Series here in St Louis.  I am 6’3 225lbs.  Can I still be competitive being this heavy?  With minimal time on the track, in the couple of times I have driven karts, I am about 1 sec off fastest laps.  I know with more time on track I can improve, but already have a pretty good feel.
