He’s doing great. We are still off pace. But the consistency is there. Incremental improvements every time out. I was terrified for the first round of rolling starts. But he managed them as well as I could expect. Navigated the chaos without getting caught up.
Running 2 stroke and 4 stroke in the same day is a lot for a fresh 7 year old. I thought we had done enough conditioning. But based on the finals. Watching head lean and late to the gas. He was tired. But a successful day with no bent parts.
Put on new tires over the weekend, only to have our race get canceled due to a storm. Gonna swap the practice tires back on to get some laps in before next month’s race. Man, I could use another set of wheels.
Also installed a new drive sprocket, topped off the brakes, and scaled/added weight to my son’s kart.
Slowly getting ready for this weekend at NCMP. Got both karts scaled out and setup. Dragging a new guy into the mix with my spare kart, only had to hang 90lbs to get him up to weight. That was a challenge but the numbers are spot on. Couple more fiddly things and ready to pitch fork it all in the trailer. Getting excited!
