I agree. Each kart was different that I got into. Either way, still an alright evening.

Now that I think of it, 22 had some kind of oily fluid all around the brake pedal area, my guess is brake fluid. Shortly thereafter once we set off, I found I had no brakes, along with the super worn LF wheel bearing, and that POS still ended up being the fastest kart I sat in all evening. Weak.

Karts or cars, racing breaks things, GP Kartways maintains them best they can, but just like real cars things happen, call it luck of the draw, just like racing full size cars, chance is a factor in racing. one night you may have a better kart, part of the challange of racing is acheiving with out having the best vehicle.

It seems things are heating up a bit, with 30 plus drivers now coming out, the competitive spirit is showing big time, remember, your best 3 nights count, so you can have a bad night on the track and still win, this is why its run as a series, not a one time race.

Speaking of heating up, heard there was a bit more competitive "bumping and grinding" this week!!! Cannot wait to see what happens in 2 weeks. I didn't get to watch to many of the races last night because I was going over the Road raly trip to Florida in August with Gnome in the lounge.

Also want to give everyone a heads up that on our final race on March 21st try and be there for 5pm, we have the Pirelli Rep coming for a tech session!!!! Great chance to learn about one of the most important parts of performance.....rubbers!!!

I forget which cart I was in for my last race, but half way through, I pushed the brake pedal to floor... I quick look down showed that I had sheared the bolt for the link off.... and my inside front wheel bearing was grinding pretty badly too... must have had the same cart as you Rudy.
