I’m an old geezer, recently retired and bored.
Just happens that there is a small karting track about 20 miles from my house.
I’m kind of thinking karting might be something that will give me more to do and keep my driving skills up. I don’t want to end up like my father who became a menace on the road.
At least for now, I’m not really thinking about formal racing, just trying to get around the track as fast as possible. Competing against myself.
I’d want my own kart. I’m thinking LO206 engine with centrifugal clutch.
One concern I have is spending a fortune on clutches. Assuming I drive like your grandmother, that is, half throttle a lot, how long is a clutch going to last? How about tires? I was thinking I’d probably use medium hardness.
I guess my biggest question is, am I going to be kicking myself for not getting a 125 shifter kart? I drove a rental at the track, which probably had an a 206 motor and acceleration didn’t exactly snap my neck back. But simplicity and reliability are priorities.
I’d want a good kart. I’m not rich, but I think I can afford a pretty good one. Any karts you care to
Thanks a bunch.
