Thanks a lot for the input guys! I really appreciate what you had to say and I think you both bring up some interesting points. It seems my budget may be a little bit too low to be able to get into a decent shifter that would last for a while and also, keep me interested in the sport. So, you’ve got me re-thinking everything once again!
I do like the idea of getting the newest chassis my budget will allow. I think it might not be a bad idea to throw a Briggs Animal on it just to get some seat time. I would also love to enter races and grind it out with the locals here in Redding. Perhaps later, throw a Tag or something on it to get some fast time.
Once again, thanks for your input and help directing me to the best kart for me.
