These karts had a minimum weight of 385 pounds with the driver on board and would race up to 25 laps on tracks of .85 miles in length up to 2.7 miles. The fastest recorded speed for this kart was 125 mph, which was established at Buttonwillow. Multi time Formula 1 Champion, Michael Schumacher, was quoted as saying that Shifter Karts are "the closest thing to a Formula 1 race car in quickness of acceleration, braking, steering, cornering ability and sequential gearbox shifting."
