I've been autocrossing a 2 stroke 125cc shifter for several years now, and absolutely love it. I know nothing about the 4 stroke kart engines, but the rest of the chassis setup should be somewhat similar to mine.

I drove a 125cc shifter and basically was in serious need of Charmin, I can't imagine doubling the displacement.

I keep telling myself that once we start having children I will put my car modding on hold for a few years, pick up one of these and have my "fix" at the tracks every other weekend

It's a REALLY REALLY good idea. You should try it.

For serious, I have a boner over your kart. Want to drive.

Good Lord! That much power with a comparatively wide power band must be spectacular in a shifter.
