karters say its one of the best engines,  it has really good reliability, its got a pretty good amount of horsepower for the little guys(me including) .     
i dont know if its a older design ???     i dont think so, The j is the most popular engine in Australia!!!!  the S motor coming in second

EDIT:  i found out there didnt get rid of it because everyone didnt want the AKA(Australian Karting Association)  to get rid of it,everyone loved that engine.   there was alot of poeple thinking the J motor would be GONE in a couple of years and..... it never went

The j is an old motor it's been in karting from the early 80's that should have died with the dinasores hahaha

you still use the s60, you lot need to catch up most people use the w60 or the w80 for cadets.
