Someone at the local track is selling his 2017 BirelArt RY29 S8B with a 125cc IAME X30 engine. He’s also throwing in a MyChron5. All for around $3500. I’ve been racing rental karts for the past two years and have been looking for the opportunity to purchase a used kart. I’m not looking to get into any races at the moment, just want something I can call my own and practice with on the weekends, though x30 is the most popular series out here. According to the seller, he’s only driven it in one race and has barely used it at all. Obviously I’ll go see it in person, but does this look like a good option on paper? One of my main concerns is its 28/30 tube diameter, because I’m a taller/heavier driver (6’1", 190lbs), and this chassis seems more geared towards junior drivers.
Any input would be much appreciated!
