That was… nuts! Great race.


(Danny Corcoran) #184

Thanks man! Definitely a fun race to be a part of. Sure wish I came on top, but probably my favorite 2nd I’ve ever gotten! Congrats on the rock! That is epic! Do you have any video of that race?


(Danny Corcoran) #185

lol I don’t either and I gotta work with the guy! :rofl:

Me in my recently restored 1992 Omega vintage. our kart shop didn’t have any 9s so had to improvise. Should hopefully have a better engine than a kt100 soon

Al,
How do the older karts drive as compared to today?


(Morgan Schuler) #188

No forgot the GoPro at home :disappointed:


(Eric Gunderson) #189

Not super recent, but 2017, in a friend’s kart…

I know, I know, I lean in…I fight that habit as best I can…try to limit the tilting to just my head, a habit I started developing in oval racing for some reason.

What happens when you lean into the turn vs keeping your body straight and leaning your head instead?


(Davin Roberts Sturdivant) #191

It’s using the driver’s body weight to help to plant the outside tire and jack the inner wheel…

That or the driver is tired. :wink:


(Eric Gunderson) #192

It WAS and endurance race…drove for 2.5 hours…


(Aj Horwell) #193

They are a lot lighter which makes them more sensitive to steering input, makes them feel a wee bit twitchy but they are lot of fun too drive


(Charles Stockton) #194

Hey DavinRS, I do not wqnt to be worrisome but what “help to plant outside tire” and “Jack the inner wheel”. I take that to mean, setting up the turn while the front tire gets air? Oh, how was things today for you, hope all went well…

When you make it to the track tomorrow, we’ll talk about it then, but basically karts do not differentials, so we have to sometimes lift an inside rear tire to help them turn.
