I love it! Friends of mine have a dirt track in their backyard and races every Sunday during the summer. There'* even a "night race" for the 4th of July. There'* anywhere from 10-15 racers each week...some come over from Canada even.
I don't race there....but I did get the Most Agressive Driver award last summer at our mini-meet in Ontario (ONBF 07) Of course, those karts are slow and crappy compared to the real ones.
he claims the hardcore carts can go from 0-100 and back to 0 in less than 10 seconds
I like the safety cage carts. A good friend of mine lost a son in a cart without a cage that ran into the back of a truck by accident.
Yea, some of them go pretty quick, but not that quick. We dont have a speometer on our karts, but most people say that our'* are hitting about 70 on the backstretch.
I was a little worried about getting into go-karts after all the years racing Quarter Midgets due to the lack of a roll cage, but in our first year, we only saw one cart get in the air, and the driver was just a little scratched up. They really dont roll over as much as you would think due to how wide they are.
