Before Supernats I switched from a Tillett T12 to a much softer Imaf F6 silver. I mounted it in the same position, at the top of the rails. I didn’t have any time in the kart for about 2 months before the race, so I went there with out any idea of what the kart would feel like. I think I’m finally on the right track of having the kart work like a kart. I even experienced two wheels for the first time ever in that super grippy turn one on Sunday. I could also feel the kart jacking and flexing around me a bit for the first time. Unfortunately, not being used to that I think I had a tendency to over react.
I also found that I needed to just quit trying to make the kart fit me using the factory pedal mounts. I just can’t reach them properly and trying to stretch out or hold my self in place wasn’t working for me, and I don’t feel that the bolt on pedal extenders are a good long term solution. I always joke that I need a 1010mm shifter
On my old intrepid I used some Wldkart pedal mounts that bolted to the floor pan. There were two issues with them and they were both the reason I tried to not use them again: my legs were always on the tie rods, and the Intrepid/Praga floor plan is fairly narrow.
I’m also a big fan of 3D printing and attempted to design a solution. It worked ok but I just couldn’t get back far enough to make it work.
So I’ve spent part of the day installing the IPK pedal mounts on my Praga. I still need to make a new brake rod and add a throttle spring but these things are pretty nice.
I’m not joking when I say I have no legs
