TJ, I have described similar to motocross on smooth asphalt. Most are not race / gearhead types. What most people ask is how fast does the kart go. Then they say it is so low to the ground it must feel faster. What I tell them is I have no idea of the speed. What gets you is the constant turns & never much of a rest. The g’s are relatively high & it is the best bang for the buck. One of the guys from the car track was surprised how loud the YF200 is.

I always make sure to emphasize the Gs and average speed too. Top speed is the question I get every time too.
