Mcdonalds is more popular than a lot of burger joints….. Nothing wrong with McDonalds, it just might not be for everyone. Sure there’s strength in numbers but I think that making a decision based on how popular something seems on a national scale may not be the best way to go.
Again, it really comes down to where you plan running your kart, and personal preference. Across the nation, for sure the most talked about is spec\stock moto there’s no denying that. On the other hand the last race I attended out my way had just shy of 50 shifters, I would say less than 10 were bona-fide stockers, rest were KZ/ICC/Mod and I think we might have had a yammie 250 four cycle shifter or two as well.
A stocker won that race incidentally…..
