That's because the 1200 cc mini sprint class has a 13 y/o age min......all the other classes are either 8 y/o (rest A) or 12 y/oMicro 600s are becoming far more dominant than Mini Sprints as seen at the recent Tulsa Shootout. Over a thousand entrants at the event with less than 50 that were not Micro 600s.
Not debating just stating.
It is affordable until you wad one up lol 2000 for a pair of good adjustable shocks is rediculous imo! Sold my 270 before anything like that happened and depending on where you run you can burn a lr and RR off of it in a heat race! psitons, 150 rr 140 shocks 2g's adds up fast! 3-5 gallons of alcohol on a short race every time you hit the track adds up too! Karts are way cheaper even with tire prepping! (they do that in micros too! ALOT)open class outlaw karts, on the tracks I have seen them both on on the same night, are just as quick, sometimes a notch quicker. Tons of fun to be had. We left "flat karts" a long time ago. This will make our tenth season in outlaw karts. We climbed the ladder from restricted to open. People need to look at outlaws and micros. It is WAY more affordable than most kart guys realize, I think
Yes I have an engine left over from my Microsprint that we might stick on a outlaw chassis and see how it goes. Not sure I am gonna drive it though! I have a good wheelman for that!outlaw karts is what I was talking about. Just as speedy as the micros on the tracks we have shared with but MUCH less expensive, and we dont prep tires at all. maybe other guys do, we do not. Open class are fast, light, small so tow vehicles can be realistic. ... lots of bang for the buck
