Re: Tire / wheel stretch or no stretch

I'm one of those guys, and you nailed the theory!

I haven't had the chance to do back to back comparisons, but putting the wider rim on a tire is definitely a bit more work.
For the Brigg's classes you don't need to have bead screws.

Re: Handheld battery operated air compressor

Looks impressive, and I'm sure a lot less hassle than hauling around an air tank.
Any idea how long the battery lasts?

Used Kart Marketplace

I'm considering putting up a bulletin board in the Try A Kart classroom, listing available karts that potential new members might be interested in purchasing. 16% of the Try A Kart attendees end up joining the club, and if we can make it easier for them to acquire a 'known-quality' kart, it should h...

Re: 2014 Kosmic (OTK - Tony Kart) Mercury with Rotax Evo package

Thanks Dan!

There's a sale pending, but if it doesn't go through before the first race, you know I'll be on the grid.
But I'm planning on focusing on the Brigg's class this year, so we'll see what happens.

Re: Track Direction

Personally, I like a 50/50 split simply for the variety.

But if we are destroying tires that quickly going in the CW direction, it begs the question, are we using the correct tires in the first place?!?!?

Re: Rookie Advice on Weight Class

If you're a member, and the track is open prior to the Rookie School, you can definitely put your kart on track. If you are not a member, there is a nominal fee ($50 I think) to be a Test & Tune day member. Either way, club members will definitely help you get up to speed. We love sharing what littl...

Re: Rookie Advice on Weight Class

Hi Cabel, Spring is coming, just not fast enough! Jack's spreading some great advice. Since it's your first year, I'd get out and practice as much as you can without any weight. When you're comfortable, which might be the first race of the year, jump in the Senior class and see how it goes. If it lo...
