We also highly recommend two books written by members of our very own community:

On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate your mechanical ability, or willingness to wrench on things? Ability?
6 Willingness? 10
Spent a short time in WERA/CCS on motorcycles.
Networking and tech understanding of working on a kart: how to adjust the chain, bleed brakes, remove the axle, adjust caster/camber (what the heck is a “pill”?)
Spent the day at the F Series practice yesterday, learned quite a bit. I had a Tony Kart Racer with a Rotax 125 in the early/mid-2000s that was nit as advertised. I did a few practice days at Englishtown and NJMP, but the whole experience soured me. Honestly, it was my fault for not doing enough due diligence and not going about things the “right” way: not owning a stand/trolley being a big one! Starting over 20 years later and taking my time, thinking things through.
Considering either a trailer or a Versa Haul hitch rack. I like the cost/size/lack of maintenance/storage of the Versa Haul, but its a 1 trick pony, so to speak.
Nice to meet you all,
