Every Petrolhead Needs To Own A Shifter Kart

For long ago there was no article about kart racing and its advantages, so I had to write the article myself!

First a little introduction to karting. I compete at club level in Canada where you buy your own go-kart, compete with it, keep it, and customize it to what you want to do with it (by the rules if you plan to compete). You can compete in very intense races across many classes. These classes include 4-stroke, 2-stroke, switch and then single-speed go-karts.

This switch card features a modified 6-speed dirt motor with a capacity of 125 ccs, which is mounted on a chassis with 4 wheel disc brakes and a sturdy rear axle. The more powerful engine produces around 49 hp. I have bought a best quality shifter kart engine via for my kart.

The go-kart and driver combination weighs about 175 kg, which corresponds to a power-to-weight ratio of 280 hp. per ton … In short, it's a little more than the original Dodge Viper. Ridiculous.

It makes these things really fast. It's a beast that drivers learn to control the throttle pretty fast … which makes it a VERY GOOD tool for learning or improving car handling and driving skills. If you get it wrong, you'll get it right away.

But don't be afraid. Less dangerous than other go-karts (provided you have a suitable route to drive them). Of course, you spin a few times and make more mistakes than usual, but that's where you learn. You won't find the limits of the machine until you go over them.

And with this sturdy rear axle, you don't have to keep turning around the track for the best time. You can decide that you want to have fun. In fact, driving like that is almost easier. You can spend the whole night spending your time in life.
