As some of you regulars may already know, I snapped the Crankshaft on my MY09 Leopard. I still want to fix it, if for no other reason than to sell it off. In the mean time, I have been putting away my Duckets for a New Motor.
My query now is should I take an offer for a RoK GP with maybe 2 hours on it or should I get a KA100 new in the box for about the same price?
My old MY09 was under powered for my weight (205 lbs) compared to the X30 and the Max/Evo, so I always struggled keeping up. The GP would put me close to minimum weight for Masters and about 15 lbs over for Senior in TaG 125. Still doable. However, the class seems to be on the decline. Last few club races have had between 3 and 6 entries, while TaG 100 has been on the rise. More like 10 to 20 entrants at the club level.
The issue for me is that dropping down to 100, means being over weight and under powered again. I would be within 10 lbs of Masters, but more like 40 lbs of Senior. I have yet to see a Masters 100 class at any of the clubs races. The numbers are enticing, but is it worth the disadvantage?
