Gents, bumping this back up for a quick question.
Mounting a seat on my “new to me” Tony Kart 401. The seat placement guide for OTK is pretty good in my opinion.
If i went directly off the guide I’d place the seat at 625/630, and 5-10mm below the chassis rails. I even got an OTK seat to keep things simple and take as many variables out of the equation.
The question is in regards to a blurb in the OTK guide that says to move the seat back 10mm for “hard tires”
We run Bridgestone YLC’s which I believe is considered a pretty hard tire in the grand scheme of things. So should I go 635 /640 based on the hard tire?
I also almost got down to my target weight but not quite, I do fit in a size 3 seat vs. the 4 I thought I was going to have to be in. any additional considerations for being fat other than keep the seat low to minimize the effect of the weight on the kart?
