Does any one have any experience with an extended porch? Does it cause any sort of drop off in performance?

I used one when I had my Sodikart a few years back. I didn't scale the kart afterward, but it seems logical that adding a front porch would shift weight toward the front, albeit very slightly.

It didn't change the handling but, then again, I don't think I'm very good at sensing such things. Confused

Dev-many of the vintage karts has such extensions, sometimes from the factory (Bug Stinger Sidewinder). Some extend the whole frame because the vintage karts were shorter, and now more difficult for our mature bodies to fit.

I would expect the frame extension would alter the handling, but not the porch extension, except for changing the weight distribution slightly forward. This could easily be measured by 4 corner kart weighing and adjustment. c
