    New Texas Atom 3 owner's first-day report

    Today I received the following (unsolicited) email from my latest Atom 3 buyer--

    QUOTE
    Dear Sirs,
    It has been 10 yrs since I raced 125 Shifter karts & 250 Shifter karts in anger here in Texas on the track. Even though five of those years have
    been on 600cc & 1000cc track bikes, I evidently haven’t forgotten everything.

    My new Atom 3 # AA30XXX in my humble opinion is the following;
    1) Constructed with excellent workmanship/craftsmanship,
    2) Well designed in balance and efficiency,
    3) Excellent in power to weight balance,
    4) Excellent in performance grip feedback along with taught controls all around,
    5) Truly Is as user friendly as a fast track vehicle can be (minimum mass),
    6) Better than most 250 shifter karts in handling, balance, rotation & throttle control,
    7) A true friend to the driver that can accurately steer with both the wheel and the throttle.

    After today, with only 100 track miles on the motor & the street Yokahamas, I’m already looking forward to the performance gains when the engine is fully ready. I can certainly tell the thing will be truly quick with track slicks and a few more coil over/dampening tweaks. Still, as it was economically purchased; it points well, has minimum push on entry, responds perfectly to throttle, and promptly asks for the rest of the gas.

    Bless you guys for this wonderful “track toy”. unquote

    And this was just his first day to drive, and the chill factor here in Wichita Falls was 11 degrees today- hope it was a little warmer where he was , a bit south of here--

    I believe he is a happy customer and one of us guys! Do y'all agree?

    Yea,he gets it...
    The power of an Atom is a terrible thing to waste! Atom owner/operator since 2007. The more you chase perfection,the faster it becomes. John Force for President! (I asked him once in person...he laughed)

    Sounds like he'd fit in perfectly around here. You should tell him to join our forum!

    Its wonderful to hear about someone who sees all the great things the Atom offers. Thanks FourFather. I do hope they come visit the forum. It would be enjoyable to compare notes more often with someone like that.
