Now try, found a setting that couldn't be right....had to have been changed somehow. Maybe I did it by mistake. :?:
It was probably Steve. :lol:

Insert "XXX" (wrong answer) image from the Family Feud.

Sounds like an OE error with Seth.

In the next chapter, Andrew will be exploring some roundy round racing at local track.
I'm not sure who is more excited, he or I? I know he is damn excited.

Got a good deal on the kart, but there is a bit to do on it, and I don't think Rhonda will let me bring this one into the kitchen. Mostly adapting the kart for Andrew's size. Also need to figure out the best way to ballast the kart to make minimum weight. Also need to figure out if the motor is worth saving or not.

For ballast, we used to use lead sheet in the seats. That was mostly so we could pull it out for driver swaps during enduros, but worked well for normal races too. In general with karts on dirt you want the weight as high as possible for weight transfer (it is a dirt track right?). As for size, we had one kart that had pedal extensions, essentially an extra set of pedals with a solid rod to the actual pedals. That way he can grow into it. I remember how excited I was for my first kart so he probably has you beat haha

It's actually a paved surface. The nations site of excitement, Barre's Thunder Road.

They'll use the main oval for turns 1 and 2 which has 33 degree banking, then a portion of the infield pavement.

They've paved that too by the way, and now have added a dirt oval inside the paved one.

He must be Stoked!
What kind of engine are they running these days? Have they gone to OHV's or they still using the ol' 5HP Briggs L-heads?
