Hi Josh,

Don't buy cheap it ends up costing in the long run.

Believe me I did the same thing when starting out and it cost me

big time and put me off karting for a while.

Rotax need to be 2009 or newer to comply with aka rules.

There are plenty of older ones out there so beware.

Also Yamaha is a dying breed so Rotax is the way to go.

Push button start,reliable and 25 hours between rebuilds.

This chassis was $3500 new.Engine $3500. Alfano $650.

So with all the other bits and pieces it is a lot less than half price. 

All done total of 15 hours since new.

Hope this helps.

Happy karting Paul

Hi Josh,

What category did you want to race?

This will be determined by:

Your age...... whether you are a junior or senior

Your weight...chassis size

Let me know and I can give you some info.

I have an Intrepid Storm chassis with Rotax engine both $2010 models.

Bought from Kaos Karting on the Gold Coast with suit helmet gloves and boots all for

$3500 if you are interested.Suitable for restricted or open light or heavy.

Thanks Paul.

Send me your email and I will send pics and let me know your age and weight.
