Hey Bobby,
My son starts karting this year, so I have a lot to learn. I got Jimmy Glenn's book and started building motors. I've done 6 so far since last Oct. I really enjoy it and it's a whole lot cheaper than the late models.

Keep in touch

18 53,

Where are you at in North GA? I moved to Woodstock from south GA 2 years ago. I had to hang up the driving gloves a few years ago but my brothers still run and I've been wrenching for them, they usually run in north FL, GA and Eastern AL. They have a New Nemesis that works awesome, it is one consistant kart.

The more kart talk the better to me.

30owner,

You building briggs? Stock?

Speedi65,

What kind of tracks you running?

Hey Bobby,
I've built mostly purple plate motors so far. My son and 2 of my friends sons all will run purple this year. I've also built 2 unrestricted motors so far, a 95-3 and a 98-3. What cams are you running?

Thanks

30owner,

I don't have a clue as to what cam we use, we buy our motors from Performance Engines and Chassis in Sylvester Georgia. He makes some great power, had a couple of guys finish in the top 10 at Daytona and had Andy Pugh win on Jr champ with his motors.

We run dirt and some asphalt ovals in the Heavy and Super Heavy classes. Dirt is the most fun, but asphalt really gives you the sensation of speed more.

Is there a lot of tracks in Pa? There is a a good many tracks in north Ga and North FL, and AL.

I saw the advertisement yesterday for Cleveland's race. I told my brother about it, so maybe we'll make it. How far is Blue Ridge from Woodstock.
