      I keep seeing pics of these full bodied karts on facebook, but it is always in a different language.  Anybody know anything about them?  Will this style of kart be hitting our shores?

      They are in Brazil. They are used for the Granja Viana 500 event. At least five Americans raced this weekend – two from USPKS, two from SKUSA and Josh Lane – thanks to MG Tires. There are a few of the bodies in Florida. They run 4-cycle engines, but the chassis just like normal karts with the body added.

      All it needs is a 360 bumper, roll bar and seat belt.

      Anybody flip one yet? I’ll bet that driver box would hurt you.
