Steve,

I moved from the top to the middle hole on the pedal. I do see on the master cylinder I am at the top hole and there is one below to move to. My brake pads are about 10mm thick and I have about 2mm clearance on the rotar.

I’m looking for more bite. At my track on the straights I am braking from about 55mph. I pretty much have to stand on the brakes. They do stop me but I never get to a point where I feel the back end is going to wash out. I notice that Arrow has a softer set of pads that I am going to try. Also will bleed the brakes.

I just bought the kart in April used but it is a 2013 and supposedly only used a couple times. I have done two races and about four practice sessions.

Thanks for your help.
