Yeah, I’m just going to say it. Rubens Barrichello shows why shifter karts are awesome. /endthread
Basically Rubens is on a Brazilian entertainment show, comparing the speed of his KZ compared to regularly priced cars of the same value. He laps the track, and pretty much destroys the laptimes of both cars. Then, he does a time attack run and gives a comparable laptime to other performance cars. Sadly, there are no English subtitles.
Just skip to 2:05 to watch the lap with the regular cars, and then skip to 4:30 to watch his lap attack.
Um yeah… Faster than some seriously quick road machinery for a fraction of the cost. So, why don’t more people want to own karts?
