If anyone is considering running KA100 this season and needs a motor, you should buy now while the special price of $1695 is on until February.

I think running these would be a blast at Thompson.

How many senior 2 cycle guys are buying these? We would think about getting one if they were not going to be restricted. Lot of money to spend to go slower.

I'd consider getting one, but it wouldn't be until the summer. I saw them in Daytona and they're a pretty neat package. I think it'd be pretty tough to achieve parity without running the KA at 415#+ or restricting it; which to me takes away a lot of the appeal. For reference Daytona is about a 7/10th mile track and the KA (@360#) was 1.9 seconds slower than the IAME X30, but 1.6 seconds faster than a Yamaha Can (@340#). I'd also hate for 2 or 3 of these to ruin the current 2 cycle class and make anyone with a Yamaha feel like they need to go buy a KA to compete. Ideally 4 or more of these show up and run their own class, or none show up.
