Im in a crew racing The Sodi World Series and we’ve been using a rubber insert to keep from flogging around in the gigantic hire kart seat. This moves the driver up and forward by over an inch relative to where he / she would sit without it. Can someone tell me please ewhat the change in COG does to the handling?
It’s effect is surely microscopic - but a microscopic change multiplied by a couple of hundred laps is probably worth thinking about.
We’ve discussed buying our own seat insert and cutting the bottom out of it in order to bring the COG down to where Sodi designed it to be, even if we’re still forward of what’s ideal.
How big a deal is this?
