That's why I say the weight of a car matters.

 

Vios 1.5 weighs only 970kg, hence economical & pick up good.

 

Cerato 1.6 weighs 1275kg - how can the bigger Cerato beat the 1.5l Vios in a drag race?

Doesn't matter. Bottomline is, you've gotta have the balls to drive in the go cart. All you need is some crosswind or microbust and the whole thing will flip. Also note theres no roll cage on the cart. [sweatdrop]
