Who’s headed to the Supernats this year?

I just booked my flights today. I arrive Thursday morning and leave on Sunday Morning. Not the greatest time to leave, but that’s what I could do with family commitments.

Come find me if you’re down there, I’ll likely be sporting either a media vest and/or KP swag from our store.

What would you like to see from the Supernats this year?
K360 and EKN have race coverage down, plus I won’t be there for Super Sunday.
What else is interesting to you?

My original plan was to try and do a “behind the scenes” video documentary on what it takes to put on an event like the supernats. We’ll see where that collides with reality.

The other video I’d like to is a compilation of parents citing why they bring their kids karting, quoting some lines from this:

Would have loved to go this year. Even as a spectator it’s such a fun week.

I would really like to see some special Vegas race suits…

Me too…

Actually any piece of karting kit that’s Vegas themed would be cool to see some pics of. Helmets, decal kits, suits etc. And no, I’m not self-promoting, I just like seeing the one-off stuff…

Sounds suspicious…

Nothing suspicious, we were team mates back in ICA days.

Our kids all got some matching custom Vegas themed suits. They are awesome, can’t wait to show them off.

James, if you are looking to do some original content why not interview some drivers. Shoot, our tent alone could get you some good stories about how people arrived at racing in the supernats. Stop by the Nitro tent anytime.

Actually, that might be perfect…

I have a topic I’d love to see more info on…

SKUSA apparently has their new IAME shifter motor on display at the SuperNationals, that is the planned replacement of the Stock Honda shifter classes.

-What is the estimated retail price their planning to sell the engine for?

-Does it come standard with an electric on-board starter? If not, can it be added to the package as an option?

-Does it share parts with their CIK-homologated IAME KZ engines? Can you swap a 125cc cylinder, ignition, or anything else needed, and go race in a KZ shifter class with it?

A picture on Facebook shows it with a Butterfly Carburetor, instead of the usual slider carbs seen on most shifters.

This new motor is a pretty big deal for them. If they get it right, they can solidify their position as the premier kart organization in the U.S. . Get it wrong, and it could really hurt them, and give their competitors a boost.

Any pics of the motor? I don’t think I’ve seen it yet.
Is it 125cc or are they running a modified X30 super shifter?
