Triton was a great chassis but that Phenom just seems to flat out work over here in the rust belt. Could go either way in my eyes.
For a new guy, a Phenom (if it's not all used up) would be the better kart for our midwest low/no bite black dirt oval tracks using Burris floppy sidewall tires. (in my opinion)

If you were down south on some momentum bite-up red clay circle tracks, then there's definitely more speed in the Triton.
Once you get a good handle on tires, the Triton will be as good or better than the Phenom in the midwest as well.

Thanks and God bless,

Triton and learn as much as you can about tires.
As fast as our Phenoms are, our Triton is definitely faster.
