I saw this on the JR Race Car website today, I know they have done billet animal stuff but I don't know if they have ever gone this aggressive. Looks like an all billet animal. Thought all the Animal enthusiest would think this is cool.
The guys who run those things at the top level do get them hooked up. Its simple, take an equal amount of money you spent on the motor and spend it on tires, chassis detail, and everything it takes to make the kart quickly go around corners.I couldnt find any more info on it but I would say it is making over 32-34hp at least. Correct me if I am wrong but that seems pretty accurate I would think. I completely agree you Mike on there are alot of other ways to go fast for cheaper. The karts in open at my local track are the ones who have a stock appearing motor and only have 1500 in there motor where as some of the people who come with over 3000 in there motor alone cant stay hooked up where as with the stock appearing motor you are making just about the right amount of power at around 18-24 horse maybe a tad more but not much more but they can stay hooked up where as the people with dirt bike motors or 2 strokes can't.
People with the bigger motors have a harder time staying hooked up to the track so there are usually a lot of FAST guys but they cant stay hooked up like the stock appearing guys who are local.That's funny when you say local or national level. Here in the southeast the competition is pretty stiff when you show up for a race you will have to contend with drivers like (Seay, Gilbert, Chavous,,Hollyfield,Yow) just to name a few. Three of them won national championships and two won multiple times in the UAS division. Just saying I'm done later Chuck.
