Newbie Engine Questions


I am new to kart racing and was under the understanding that Clones where cheaper then Flathead, now I start looking at used motors on here and see a lot of fatheads for sale for around 150-300 dollars and most of the clones are over 350... just wondering why what i hear and what I see for sale contradict there self.

You see a lot of flatheads cheap because a lot of areas do not have classes for them.
The lack of interest among karters to run them.
Rebuild costs and initial build cost is much higher than a clone. They are the old guard of karting so to speak.
Clone is cheaper to operate and way more classes to run! Last time i ran flathead there was 2 of us in the class..clone there was 22. Much more competition and fun.
