Re: What tires do you have left ?

2 days if you sign up for rapid testing on the way into YYC then retest again after 5 days.

Re: What tires do you have left ?

Yeah I aint bothering ... will have to do 3 COVID Tests in 8 days now though.. the US one will cost $75 US to do at the airport before boarding .. rapid test on landing then 5 - 7 days after that.

I've had COVID so I'm pretty much covered as much as any vaccine would offer.

Re: What tires do you have left ?

No we don't need CIK rating .. the Prime is a little softer according to their durometer data .. they wanted to send wet tires to test too (in Phoenix) but the open wet tire is probably the way to continue.

Re: What tires do you have left ?

https://maxxiskartracing.com/sprint-tires/ I have now made contact with the Maxxis importer in the US who is sending two sets of tires free of charge for me to test in Phoenix in a couple of weeks time.

Re: 2021 Tyres - what's your vote?

Lavento would be too much tire for the VLR .. I drove it on a Briggs at the Enduro and after 10 laps it was getting uncomfortable.. way way too much grip. It would buck out of corners and quite literally I only had to brake for the second part of the infield hairpin.. I was able to get down to the v...

Re: What tires do you have left ?

So the question really needs to be, has everyone apart from 1 current VLR user now taken the 7.1 rear off the table ? That was one of the prime reasons we looked at a different affordable tire. I would suggest a way forward would be Vega green 6.0 (Vega green shifter tires excluded) Maxxis sport 7.1...

Re: What tires do you have left ?

I think it is important to keep this class as a "Affordable Karting" class to allow it to grow (this primarily is about club racing not so much the ROK Cup side of it). The Maxxis is a very good tire and very affordable for what we need. Joey and Jimmy will have the tires in stock so we wont have a ...
