Have raced Senior Rotax in the past but quickly got tired of the local dealer side of things, especially in this internet age.
Looking to get back into competitive 2-stroke karting it and wanted to know who the major online US retailers are for karts and parts, and what brands they carry.
I understand that some people even import parts from europe to reduce costs for less time sensitive parts.
Which retailers are being used for this?
Of course, any comments regarding who’s pricing is more competitive is welcomed.
I understand the “local track” and “local brand” mentality for parts availability and support, I just don’t want to do things that way this time round, it’s not for me.
I may end up running one of the local brands any way, I just don’t want to rely on local dealers and their pricing. I just don’t think it’s necessary in this modern e-commerce age.
Only one I know of stateside is Comet Kart sales, but even they don’t advertise their chassis pricing and state “please call us” to get pricing on karts. Tired of feeling like I’m dealing with a damn car dealership to buy karts and parts.
Karts and their parts are small enough to all be dealt with online, even shipping a chassis can be easily done. There must be others that share my frustration.
