Higher class weights are great for business, but bad for backs.
Looking at Lynn’s pic, its easy to see one reason that the weights are so much higher now, the karts weigh so much more. Lots of superfluous plastic bits and extraneous “safety” equipment, such as sidepods. Add on all the useless electronics of today’s engines and you’ve got yourself a lead sled.
