Default am29 ?

I was wondering if the am29 would be a good kart for a driver to race at 370 pounds total weight with a honda 6.5 4stroke or a briggs local 206 engines .we have a master class in canada that use these motors.also what does the rear X wheel base effect when changed forword or back on the 3 settings?
Thank fury

Default Am29

In Canada for the 4 Cyl classes above 290 lbs we favour either the AM29 or the R 30 chassis depending on the tire rule and amound of grip on the track. The AM29 has much less mechanical grip built into the chassis then the R30 so most Sr Heavy / Masters drivers favour the AM29 as it is always very free. If you race at a track where finding grip is an issue the R30 would be the best choice. We run them both with a 40mm axle set up. Adjusting the wheel base depends on your track ,most tracks we run them at 1040mm but on a very tight track you would want to test it in all 3 postions.
