What are some of the parts you should always bring with you at the track. Being fairly new I have ran into some of the usually problems but i know not all of them yet and want to be prepared because I really hate losing track time and or an entire day b/c I don’t have a part or bolt or something
I figure there could be a “general list” and maybe another one for my specific kart 2010 crg

spare tires/wheels,tie rods, chains, sprockets,steering shaft, spark plugs, wheel studs,starting battery, batteries for mychron,rain tires/wheels, extra bolts,brake fluid,brake pads , this is a list just off the top of my head, oh , gas and oil mix if your mtr is 2 cycle
If you break something and don’t have that particular part you could also try asking around the people who have the same brand chassis as you if you could bum one off someone for the day. As long as you return it/pay for replacement I imagine most people will be happy to help so you don’t ruin your race day.
Not to sound like a smarta$$, but it takes awhile before you sort this out. There are obvious things, of course,but make a list after every outing. What you ain’t got and what you saw someone with that you haven’t thought of before.
Make friends and bring an extra 6 pak to pay off those who help you.
I’ve only been turned down once when I have asked for something.
I bring a box of washers, nuts, bolts, and various other little stuff (fasteners, e-clips, springs, kingpins, etc). Sometimes it seems I’m the only one out there with a decent bolt collection.
Also, all the tools you’ll need. Li-ion impact, and a portable toolbox from craftsmen are what I use. Also a box with all the parts cleaner, wd-40, oils, and lube you’ll need for the day. I also bring a spare axle and spare front end stuff (spindles, tierods, kingpins, steering column). Also spare chains (already broken to multiple lengths) and spare master links.
To me having all the tools and little odds and ends with the bolts and washers is probably the biggest thing.
If you happen to have an android phone there is an app for it. I think if you search Jetting the CR125 it will turn up. Uses your gps location for weather info and gives you jet, needle, clip position.
