Might as well hold on a bit until the new Burris SS series comes out.

I agree with 30 owner.Burris without a doubt.A shadow is definatly a cart(tool tray with wheels).But we race KARTS!So they dont work to well.

Kart chassis are like car chassis they all can be made to work it just takes the time to set them up right. weve won on everything from an old yamaha chassis to homebuilts to gauntlet. some just take more work than others. as for tires all depends on track conditions we typically ran burris but also had dunlops and firestones in the trailer dependind on what the track did

I agree with the Burris. But, one brand that was the most consistent when I was running nationals, etc., from 92-97 was Major Racing re-caps. He was out of Jersey, or somewhere around there. Don't know if he's still in busisness or not. Send him some carcasses and he'd send you back quality capped tires, either for dirt or asphalt. Would increase the tread width for you and also make cambered left and right side tires for indoors, etc. Even when the tread was warn way down, the tires were within consistent lap times of any new brand. Just food for thought.
