$500 Chassis
$120 Body work
$100 Motor
$60 Motor Mount
$30 Chain Gurard
$70 Clutch
$30 Chain
$30 Couple of Gears
$7 Couple of Jets
$20 Oil
$20 New Brake Pads
$10 Misc Bolts, Nuts, etc
$0 Free used Bridgestone tires

I woukld be excited! Affordable racing returns to karting, partic in today's economic climate and fuel prices. Clones may be the very thing that keeps karting going until we dig out of this mess, IMHO. cb

I ain't convertin'

But I would consider a lower-cost 2-cycle alternative like the HPV if I thought the class would grow.

I guarantee the shifters rule, or should I say "Rock".
But looking at the entry's the last couple of races looks like the clones are starting to be the ruler.
I also agree with what DrChip had to post.
Oh ...also I notice allot of the 2-stroke guys are making replies on the 4-stroke forum now.
Hmmm.....Is this telling me something???
Be careful what you say.

RIP, please notice the laughing smileys and remember I am a driver in the enduro. Yes shifters rock, but what a pain in the butt to keep on the track. I can't afford the tires and $12 a gallon fuel.

Joshua,
Yep the body work is more expensive and it was on sale. Normally I believe it is $180, for recycled plastic Very Happy

I am a 2 cycle die hard and thought I would never touch a 4 cycle other than my car and lawn mower, but how can you beat this class.

Race day other than registration and the drive down, I will spend $1.00 on fuel and $2.00 on oil. I sure can't beat free used tires too. That is a huge savings. Although I can afford to buy a Rotax, Tag or Shifter, why in the world would I want to. If I had a big track like New Castle, I might have a different view. Barnesville is perfect for the clone class. For me personally, it is all about close racing, improving my driving skills and tuning the kart to go faster.
