There’s no question that the engine with a pipe is faster and has more power when tuned correctly . I agree that if they both weighed 320lbs there would be no catching the kart set up for the pipe however my dyno sheets read that there is a 3.5hp difference between the 4 hole can and the Sr.Y pipe and that’s not much more power to make up for the 40 pounds of weight that you have to add to run the WKA pipe. How many of these forums complain about weight and how they cant catch the little guy because there heavy. It would be interesting to know how much horse power it takes to push every additional 10 pounds.
