somewhere I read double the speed of a "regular" kart....for whatever that means. I do hope they are "fast enough"...cuz I could live without killing 2 years of my lifespan breathing exhaust fumes every time I visit places like Track 21.

Yup they have some fast carts but they have poor air circulation inside to take exhaust the fumes.

That said, does CarbonJames meet the height requirement.

from the FAQ section.

Q: What is the age requirement and height restrictions for racers?
A: All junior racers must be at least 48” and adult racers must be at least 4′ 10″ tall to race. All racers should be under 7′ tall and 300 lbs.
