    Please dont shun me out of your community but I have 4 wheels........

    I race Shifter Karts and my wife and I make a "MotoVlog" for all our Regional races. We call it A Real Karting Life.

    If there is any consolidation we use a dirt bike motor (Honda CR125)

    Anyway if you will accept me as a red headed step child I am sure I can help out some others out with my knowledge and possibly help build this niche within a niche on youtube.

    If you have any questions about my setup I will be more then happy to answer

    Here is our Real Karting Life series


    Here is from a race if you just want pure awesomeness

    Cool, I wouldn't see it as a motovlog but I like the subject. I have been into gokarts for a while, would like to try some actual racing at some point.

    True Blue Aussie V8 - that said i aint from Aussie but thats beside the point, the 2016 champion is a kiwi and think he won the GT3 series enduro cup as well (not fact checked this).. wish i had your skills on iRacing though.. i will have to stick at riding i am fairly fast at that and keen to get out on the track.

    I took Moto to mean motor and not specifically motorcycle. I say share your passion whether it’s 2-wheels or 4. I love Kart racing, and have done it a few times for fun on restricted vehicles at a track that had paying customers, and at specific times and days it switched to professional racing.

    Just curious, does racing involve the connection and influence of the body on how the Kart maneuvers, say on a turn? Or is it a matter of spotting your lines, while controlling the balance between speed and inertia?

    Just curious.

    Personally, I consider anything ‘open air’ to be 'moto' enough for motovloging.
    Bikes, ATVs, Snowmobiles, go-carts, ...I suppose Jet-skis could count too.

    I mean just think about one of the ‘bikes’ from the ‘JetMoto’ series of games.
    A JetMotoVlog would be awesome.

    Yes your body is the biggest factor involved in the suspension therefor a good snug seat is a most. but you dont go about leaning and stuff into the corners like you would a motorcycle. you can a do a little bit but it is more about how many supports are connect to the seat and chassis for different handling characteristics

    Looking at your blog it looks like there's some counter-leaning (is that a rich term) on the curves.

    Glad you got my meaning when I meant 'real' term. Sometime I really hate auto-correct spelling.
