There are no reconized classes that use a "5.5 briggs" motor. All the organized tracks follow either WKA or IKF national rule. The only allowed motor is the Briggs 6.5 "Animal" OHV motor.
Another point: the only karts that "get it sideways a lil bit " are the 25 +hp two stroke karts (mainly a midwest thing). Anyone thats been around dirt karts can tell you sideways is SLOOOOW! You just don't have the HP to do that.
Bubstr is right on points of wieght distribution. As far as tires go - they ARE the game. Treaded tires are never used. Slicks all the way around -if you want to be fast. You should have something like5.00x5.00 6.00x5.00lr -8.00x5.00rf -10.00x5.00rr. Compound to suit track, shave to about .095~.065 thick - depends on your money.
Also it sounds like your kart is way heavy! 320lb kart - 125lb kid = 195lb.
And at age 13, you should be running a Jr class, which usually have a minimum class weight of 290 ish.
Heck I out weigh you by 100lb ( I weigh 225lb)and my kart (4 cycle animal senior heavy) only weighs 395 (kart =~170) - with me in it -and that's still considered heavy
