10 years ago the clone movement started in american karting, very quickly took over the dirt world. Alot of people said there was no way a cheap engine, copy of a Honda, then shipped here and sold everywhere for then, 100 bucks could hold up. Well it did, changed the whole 4 cy world
BTW don’t misunderstand this, I hate cloans, my point is, inside, the cloan is a well built engine that lasted very well. So I guess my question is as I stand here in the center of the US, why does stuff from my left cost so little, and stuff from my right cost so much?
