    Sounds like fun!! What type of karts are they, Briggs? Yamaha? Says they have 9hp and reach speeds up to 35 mph, sounds a little low. Mine only has 5.5 and goes almost 80, of course I'm alot lighter than most people ;)

    I think they are Sodikarts, but not sure. If we're all on the same setup, and riding on a sealed warehouse floor, it should be plenty fun.

    Do we need to make reservations? I'm planning on making the trip to meet you guys. Not likely to be in the 355, seat repair.

    I'd prefer people shoot me an email to confirm (and if they're bringing any other co-pilots/etc). I'll put you on the list Ken, and look forward to meeting you!

    Best,
    Daniel

    I'm not sure who "everyone" is, because my list of RSVP's is quite large. We should reschedule because of a VW/Audi/BMW show on the same day? I must have missed something here on FerrariChat

    BTW - the start/finish line is at the bottom/center of the track map, and the race direction is clockwise.

    Nope, they are not shifter karts. Just a gas and brake pedal. For those who really need help, the gas pedal is painted green and the brake pedal is red.

    Hang on Brian.......is the gas on the right or left? Where is the steering wheel? If it is setup right I might be able to drive one.
