So a new OTK costs -maybe- $600 more than the other brands mentioned. About 2 race days off in left field with one of those other chassis pretty much covers that gap.

All I'm saying is that I consistently see average drivers running well on OTK brands. I can't really say that about other brands. Of coarse much of this is because most places you go there is someone there supporting the OTK karts and/or there is a huge OTK contingent helping each other... all the more reason to buy an OTK. It is what it is. And we own a Top Kart.

New 2-Cycle Chassis are usually around the $4500-$5000 range, depending on if you get them assembled, shipped, shipped with a lift gate, etc.

Top Kart Twister: $4795 - http://shop.topkartusa.net/collections/chassis/products/2013-twister-chassis

Now while I don't have a link for this, back earlier this year when KartSport North America first listed prices for all of their chassis, they listed their FA Victory, (main OTK Model - 30 mm), for $4709.

Granted, I know that both the Top Kart Speedy and the Top Kart Flash are both significantly cheaper than the Twister, about $900 cheaper. Neither of those two models are the models of choice by Top Kart's posterboy drivers, such as David Malukas or Zach Holden, who both race on Twister 30 mm chassis.

Most other chassis brands follow suit, and the cheapest top-model of a brand has been the iKart at only $4495, which I imagine is cheaper because it is not CIK-Homologated and they do not have to pay for overseas imports.

We are the Georgia dealer for the IKart, this is one of the finest built karts on the market, for any references contact Richie Hunt, he is a member on this site, he can give you first hand information, as his son Angus races one. We sell them for less than the $4495.00 price that Xander quoted. We also offer the Birel chassis, which is one of the top chassis in the country. Package pricing is also available, as well as track support.
