Well, it seems to me there are two issues:

1) The economy. Now would be the time to import used karts.

2) Finding a good importer. A lot of good kart products are already over here but we don’t know it because the “importer” is one shop with no network. Historically, that has been the biggest issue for many importers. On the flip side, I’ve heard its tough to find an importer when you demand they buy a container full of karts. Not many karting businesses are well enough financed to jump into importing. Factor in cultural issues, money, customs, parts support, etc. and Margay looks pretty good.
