Shifter Karting v2.0

Anyone else kart on here? I just started into the sport and love it. Bought an 80cc Shifter Kart and it flys.

Pretty much. Only diffrence is this will blow most used cars off the street.

80mph in 1/16th of a mile. No I'm not lying. You can ask labelskaterules if you call shenanigans.

I wouldn't recomend all carbon fibre. While most everyone runs a Carbon seat, and alot run the steering wheels, it isn't such a good idea for the pods to be fibre. First second you tap somone in a race it's going to snap, leaving you with no pod/a broken one, DQing you. I don't know how you're going to do the pedals, they won't last for long. They're really not worth it considering you barley ever see them.

Well I would definetly reccomend a Arai, it's what I and alot of others use. If you're woried about spending $600 on your helmet don't. When you're going 80mph less then an inch off the ground, you'll want somthing nice protecting your head. Try looking around www.saferacer.com for somthing else if you'd like.

They're like drag slicks. Once you do a lap to heat them up they get nice an sticky.

E r y k - It's definetly the best bang for your buck. And you don't have to get a $8000+ Shifter Kart, theyres also cheaper options.

Delirious-Dan - Shenanigans. Get pictures of your computer saying 120 and I'll belive you. And you're not hitting 90 in a turn, thats like 8G's. I hit 3G's in a turn I'm doing 30.

hiaseas - It most definetly is!

I used to kart race. We had a YZ 125cc shifter and a KT 100. Very fast, and very fun. Every now and again, I wish I still had them. Had to sell them because it was way to much work.

Shifter carts are so badass and fast. They run them at the local autocrosses. I want to drive one so bad.
