    All this Dairy Queen talk is making me hungry for a banana split or grape slush. I guess I go & use my sponsorship card & get me & the family some sweet cold goodies. Thanks to DQ! Anthony gonna have to pull some tight strings for me to race Texas against any class for me to drive my DD2. I have nothing else to drive. Miles bought my Extreme PRD TAG to race & practice with. I could use Rocky's but I hate borrowing someones machine cause it costs more if I damage it. Plus Rocky set it up to crash & wreck all the NOLA Rotax class TAGs. Lol. You know what PRD stands for right? Predator Rotax Destroyer! Lol. No, just being my dumb self. I own 2 Rotax engines. Quality all the way. And after Shelton ports & bores & restrokes my engine it'll fly even more but don't tell anybody cause it's supposed to be stock sealed & I don't need more DQ sponsorships!

    Ricky, I'll mount you Leopard on one of your Corsa chassis next Saturday if you don't have another chassis to mount it on. They are not gonna let you run the DD2... Or just run Rocky's kart...at least it has a better chance of staying in one piece...

    My sponsor Hasse/Corsa shipped me a brand new CH 17 TAG chassis. It's the Ferrari chassis of karting. World Finals Quality. Only problem, it was shipped from Italy last week. It's cutting it close. The Iame Leopard is purring & prowling around my office now waiting to pounce on some poor unexpected victim! Hahaha lol lol. I can't wait. It's so strong when gearing is dead on. Thanks Troy & Virginia, I'm gonna add a TVS racing sticker on it for moral support. Y'all are my Robopong Racers I admire.

    doubletap - Do not let those numbers scare you away - those numbers represent the higher end of the spectrum for a new kart setup. If your a new guy and just getting your foot in the door, you can easily find used setups ready to hit the track for fractions of what you'd pay new. Get something in a very moderate range, try it out and if you like it - keep working away at practice and learning. In time, you'll know when you've progressed enough to obtain better/faster equipment. I've seen very nice shifters for less than 3K and TAG's for 2K. Do some looking around, watch a few karts on eBay to get a good idea as to selling prices. Start smaller and work your way up.

    Come join us even if it's to watch and learn and to ask questions or even help out! You will love this sport! It's a kick in the britches!!!!
    Right on the money!
