A bit corny
1 January 2005 | by (Calgary, Canada) – See all my reviews

Kart racing isn't so easy, of course. And a goof I noticed: after the "Davies Comet" engine is installed, there is still footage of Watts racing with the Rotax Max. Also, kids that age do not race with MaxSr engines.

The indoor lapping in the shop was a bit nuts.

The racing sounds were overdubbed with car engines or something, because I drive a rotax kart and I have never heard it sound like that. These are two-cycle engines, and I rarely heard the noises I associate with these engines during any of the racing/driving footage.

Also, these karts--RotaxMax--do not make 105mph top speed.
