It does not matter with what you start. Just don't buy new.
When you buy used and practice/race for few months, you will know if it is something you want to continue or you will get discouraged by whatever (there is always something, lol) and find somebody like you, who ants to try it Smile
Almost free, used stuff is not becoming free with time.

btw, don't try to accommodate your son and yourself at the same time. One kart at a time. Otherwise you will not enjoy it.

we currently both run the same 4 cycle engine , he is moving out of restrictor plate, we also run spec tires but different chassis, so i would like for us to race the same engine type, we will both be racing but we may not both get our karts at the same time. we both went to amp and tried the rentals and even immediatley feeling the limitations of them we both had a blast.

My recommendation if you both plan to race, race 4cycle, buy the same chassis and motor. I'm not positive of the direction of the Clone vs Briggs LO206, but personally I hope GSKA goes LO206. Other tracks have adopted this motor and the bottom end is sealed.

what is the life expectancy of the various two and four strokes? im all for a sealed motor as well , and i read on here that gska was going to animal pro gas only or did i read wrong? one type of motor we run in lto is the predator sealed we run them for years and years and never do anything to them.

The clone sportsman class will be allowed to run thru the 2015 series. This is a clone class.Starting with the 2015 year we will start running the LO206 as one class. It will have a sealed bottom end, and a 6150 rpm rev limiter. We now offer the LO206 class, If you would like to get a head start on R&D, you are more than welcome to enter that class and run with the clone sportsman if there are not enough racers in the class with you...

I can only really speak to the Yamaha class, but if you take care of the motor you can run all year. I had about 7 hours on mine which is about the max you should go. Each race weekend you put about 25-30 minutes on the motor.

As with all motorsports, more HP, means more cost. I moved to Yamaha from Clone because the cost of Clone was getting high from what the original intent was and the Yamaha was considerably faster. Clone and 4 cycle was a lot of fun when we have big fields. To me its all about racing nose to tail, side by side. No fun if your not being challenged. I have no desire to just turn laps.

Seat time, seat time! No matter what chassis or motor (either goes hand in hand) that's the best I can tell you from experience. Very Happy
