I have been asked by a few parents about a 4 cycle Cadet Class and I have put together a very cost effective package. Read more in the Briggs& Stratton forum.

I personally like the idea of having two cadet classes, and like a lot of tracks, an affordable 4-stroke motor is preferred. They are sealed and go all season without a rebuild. In Utah where we raced all last season, their largest classes were the 4-stroke jr 1 and jr 2 classes (up there they run the honda motors but same concept), and just about ALL the kids who were in the micromax and minimax classes also raced in the 4-stroke classes. They got more racing in, and the 4-stroke classes are a little slower and really promote tight racing, and teaching racecraft. Im in on this class if we can get it going.

As far as being slower,the Lo206 will have to have a proper restrictor to slow them down. This program has been run in Canada the past couple of years with great success. There are a few details to be worked out,I was under the impression that the Cadet class was 8- 12 yrs. old. The key to this class is that the engine is out of the equation. It has been proven they are quite equal, the difference in performance will show up in set-up but primarily in driver's ability and skill. This is quite apparent in the WF class. Despite the inevitable griping that those out of the know will perpetuate this is a very equal and durable engine package.

Adding yet another cadet engine package is not the answer. ...
