To add to what TJ said…

We need more information to help you out.

What is the kart doing, or not?
Where on the track/what kinds of turns is that happening?

You should talk to Mike Smith from Calspeed. They run a spec VLR series there.

We have been testing the VLR here as well. You can also call RLV directly and literally talk to Rod Verlingere (the owner) during the week. I’ve done so several times, that’s how solid they are in backing their product.
