Little late to the party here, but agree on quite a few points above. It seems like you guys REALLY want to grow the sport of Karting (which I love BTW), but the #1 headache for me when I was looking to get into it, was there is no place (that I have found) that goes over the differences in depth of all the classes. Most of it was contacting someone selling a kart, and hoping they give you the truth about what you class you can run in. For instance I didn’t know (don’t laugh) that the TAG class was rear brake only. I was looking at 2 different chassis that were set up for shifters with no engines attached, and was told 'oh ya this will be perfect for you". I no joke almost picked up a Miata to build a Spec Miata car, cause I was so worried I was buying the wrong thing.I know alot of clubs/places run their own rules, but still this was the biggest headache/unknown from someone trying to get into a sport for me.
Would be fun to see threads like “what did you do to your kart today”, and Build threads as well.
