Oops, didn’t mean to make Rotax sound good! I’m not a fan. Obviously the program is successful so it has it’s merits, but I’m a purist. Scooter engines don’t belong on karts in my opinion.

Karts should have a nice linear powerband, be light and flickable, and should scream at some obscene RPM.

But then again I’m running Yamaha next year, go figure. Guess that says something about the current state of karting engine formulas…
