That’s a good observation I think. The kart for sure wasn’t lifting like I wanted, but it’s possible I wasn’t quite driving at the limit I needed to be to get it to work properly. Maybe I needed to charge corner entry a little more.
I think I was leery of that because I have a tendency to drive the front tires off when I start pushing too much like that.
I tried to watch my video compared to Norberg’s video from the Winter Series there and based on my quick frame-by-frame breakdown, our braking points and throttle points are almost identical, but he is apexing some of the tight stuff a little differently than me, and that could be where I needed to change something.
Ocala is just a track that hasn’t clicked with me yet. The surface isn’t what I’m used to and the track never feels grippy to me, so maybe being that it’s not a typical track for me, my usual “drive-under-the-rubber” technique just wasn’t quite working the way it does on other tracks.
The plus side of being a long-term friendly guy in the sport is that some guys who were faster that weekend are willing to share data with me so I’ll have some stuff to review this weekend.
