Have been running both TAG/Rotax and Shifter for the last two seasons and will confirm the Shifter kart is LESS EXPENSIVE TO RUN THAN THE TAG/Rotax. Chain and sprockets last longer, engine parts are cheaper and last longer, tires about the same life.

As far as driving shifter vs TAG/Rotax expect a long steep learning curve, the shifter much different, braking points, turn in, acceleration, etc……

Have fun!
