I have a friend who’s not a forum person that has decided to go 206 racing. When I observe 206 classes locally I don’t quite understand the reasoning behind what I feel are some 206 specific setup “things”. Hoping someone can lay out the basic principals that best benefit a 206 here.
For instance. Is the general principal to generate as much grip as possible in order to maximize time on throttle?
I feel like I see the following on 206 karts:
narrow rear widths
I’ve even heard of tight side pods and max torsion bars.
…but then 6" rear wheels / tires seem popular (rolling resistance?)
So I figured I’d ask here. I’m very happy with where my chassis is at for my 2 stroke racing but IDK how to guide my firend for 206 setup as it “seems” to be a different philosophy.
