I have been looking on line and cant seem to find anything that says anything about weight distribution. I was hoping to find something that said how much weight should be at the front and how much should be at the back. Like 47% to the front and 53% to the rear or something.
Generally, we shoot for 41-43% front weight on all our karts.
A taller driver will be able to work with less front weight since they can rotate the kart with their body. A smaller driver needs more front weight to compensate for lack of transferrable body weight in the seat to “tip” the kart and rotate it.
Thanks. My son is about 5’8″ inches tall and about 160lbs. Do you still think that he should have between 41-43% front weight?? Thank you and do you know if there is any documentation online that will show me this? Just trying to understand as much as I can.
