Guess there are some differences.  Didn’t have the full coverage body work and the wheels were 3 piece.  Still should be less than $2500 though.  The age of credit must have made it possible?  Doesn’t seem like salaries have increased that much.  I know mine hasn’t gone up hardly any since I started working full time in the mid 90s.  I got lucky and won an auction on EBay for a new 2013 roller for $1625.  There is no way that I could have afforded to buy a new kart otherwise.
