I believe John was offering a top end rebuild kit including cylinder, head, piston etc for $350. Basically his cost, to get the stock program started.  There was some productive discussion amongst the 80 class drivers at Monterey Bay Karters in Marina Ca.  But is sort of lost steam with no one taking him up on his offer.

For club racing it is a no brainier.  Less frequent rebuilds, piston failures and run on 92 octane.  I would like to see a JR stock 80cc shifter class started (12-15) for those who what an introduction to shifters without leaping to S5 or the high cost of competing in TaG Jr.
