Re: What tires do you have left ?

Hi All, The thought of opening up the tire choice could be a good option and then we could see how the tires work against each other while allowing the most flexibility for the competitors. The Montana guys are on Bridgestone YLR for another year and those should be similar to the tires we are talki...

Re: What tires do you have left ?

Hi Don, I think the Maxxis Sport would be fine for what you have planned. Putting these tires on my shifter was purely out of curiosity to see how they would perform and if they would degrade or start shredding from the extra abuse that a shifter puts on a tire. Considering these tires already had 1...

Re: What tires do you have left ?

I purchased the Maxxis Sport tires https://www.mondokart.com/en/tires-tools-mondokart-karting/maxxis-tires-mondokart/tires-maxxiss-sport-racing.html for the enduro event this year for two reasons. 1. They were a good price. $235 CAN (taxes and brokerage landed at my front door 4 days after I ordered...

Re: Enduro 2020

I think this was the best attended endurance race in recent memory. There were 23 karts entered with over 70 drivers. Results were fairly close too. We saw a number of interesting motor combinations with some modifications to the stock LO206 platform. The good weather certainly helped and we ran the...

Re: Vortex VLR 100 - FAQ

My experience with running the VLR this year The motor that Jimmy got me showed about 11 hours on the timer. He said the timer was put on after the motor had a great deal more hours on it. It had 14.5 hours on it when I gave him the motor back. I ran one club race and 5 ROk Cup events at CKRC. I alw...

Moving small bleacher out

Hi,

Could someone move the small bleacher that needs re-painting out away from the grass so that the job can be started? You will need chains or tow rope to pull it out and maybe the club tractor to do it. Thx.

Re: Enduro 2020

Let's get those enduro entries in sooner than later. This event is always a fun time. Pull out those old karts and see what they can still do.

Re: Fuel supplier

When we raced at Varsity, we used the Flying J as the spec gas station which was supplied by Shell. Back then the Briggs classes ran on Regular grade fuel. While we were still at Varsity, ASN Canada switched all classes to Premium gas to simplify post race tech with only one type of fuel to deal wit...
