Well the 2 buddies that have them already I guess have older rigs that happen to still run very good and we’re all mechanics so we tend to keep things running good. One spent $1000.00 on his older 80cc kart and my other buddy spent $1500.00 on his 125cc kart. I was hoping to stay around that range. I don’t really know how to explain it other than I’m not looking for a really new kart or one that is set up with a lot of high dollar parts. I’m basically looking for possibly an older kart that still runs good that I can upgrade. Would like to stay around the $1500.00 range if possible. I know it’s not an easy thing to do possibly. I mean their karts may be older and slow as molasses compared to today’s standards but to us they seem pretty dang fast and are a lot of fun for us.
