What size is the Metrakit? I used to mini endurance a KTM 65. That was by far the funnest racing ever is mini endurance. Texas has a circuit called TMGP which is Texas Mini Grand Prix. The largest cc you can run is 110. We would put 110's in KTM 65 frames or KX65 frames. Talk about a blast. Riding mini's for 3-6hrs and sometimes at night. Cheap cheap cheap way to race. Tons of NSR50's and KX65's and a few CRF50's on steroids. Congrats.

When I was 12, I snuck a xr75 and got caught and grounded for six months. I wish my parents would have done something like that for me. I didn't start racing until I was 33, if I had another 26 years...damn.

Your son looked really strong at NJMP during the rev it up weekend. When he told me it was only his second time on the track I couldn't believe it.

thanx dave i been working with him for a little while now - parking lots, front of my house, in the trails on his dirt bike, making him listen to Twist of the Wrist Part I, and II book on CD's :thumbup:
taking him to every track/race weekend i go to!!!

You should of see him, when we did the try the track on lightning at lunch - he had that 50 pinned all the way around and my gsxr read 34mph all the way around and he couldnt stop grinning - it was my greatest lap ever, cus we got to do a lap together :thumbup:

an i was the same - my parents forbid me to ride dirtbikes, and couldnt understand why i always went over other peoples house's when i was younger - cus they had dirtbikes :rofl:
i wish i started racing/trackdays years ago - but since i have cut my season to get jr started full time - its ruff - I WANNA RIDE :thumbup:

but it will be worth it......:D

Man I wish my parents would have done some stuff like this for me when I was a kid. Mom HATES anything on 2 wheels with a motor! I got grounded every time I was caught riding friends dirt bikes! Couldn't buy my own bike till I didn't live under their roof! So I bought a house then a bike! lol

You're one kick ass dad and he's a lucky guy! Just make sure he stays a good kid!
