WR450 ICE USSC SuperKart
Posted November 12, 2005 - 10:50 AM
OK FFRacing79 you get your wish. In the USSC series, we have a number of Honda 450's and Yamaha YFZ's, YZ's, and WR's running. Nobody is afraid of them, but the racing we do puts a ton of stress on them and a lot have grenaded. So far, a stock motor will not be competitive with the best 250 2 stroke singles out there, but built 4 stroke motors have won in the ICE class. I will admit that this year was a real sorting out process and we did not have good results. This will change as we build on the experiences and get a handle on keeping them together.
