I would politely disagree. In a low hp set-up like the LO206, the center of gravity being low is key. You need almost no weight transfer in order to keep the kart “free’d up”. Just look at the front runners at any big 4 cycle race that allows 4 cycle bodywork and lay down seats (Rock Island, WKA Gold Cup, Commercial Point, etc.). In the top 5, I guarantee you will see laydown seats with the bottom as low as possible (seats notched out for frame rails).
I know you can make it work other ways, but that is the easiest.
