To race or not to race

I’m a Bigger guy. I ain’t ran in a few years. But now with my weight and a newer kart we would come across around the 450/460 mark. They have a sumo class but it’s only 425. I’m short 5’ 7” I’m not broad in the shoulders but most of my weight is my gut. I have the beer gut look. And no I don’t drink lol. But My question is would I be wasting time giving thag much weight up its clone akra and would it gift if I mount the seat different to accommodate my belly. If I mount at normal heights and stuff my gut is hitting steering wheel. I plan on trying to lose weight but we know how that works. Thanks

I did a class a few years ago that I organized called Super Sumo , it was a class where the drivers had to weigh 250# minimum . I had several guys that went out and got karts just to run the 1 race I did . I ended up with 12 racers I think , including myself , and we had a blast . Every one of them thanked me for doing that , just for the bigger racers . I suggest you seek out other racers of the same stature , and create a similar class at your local tracks . You can do the class rules how you want , and have fun ! And yes , get out and freakin race dude ! Have fun , and good luck !!

Ok next question is how bad is it going effect the kart with the seat. Cause I’m prolly gonna have to have steering wheel up high as I can and seat alittle bit higher in back or pulled back some to accommodate the belly. Lol
