    1920×1080 – that’s 16:9 ratio

    Never worked with the software before, so can’t help you where to set it up.

    Rob, please check your Private Messages.

    New Castle is a great facility to learn about the sport. Comet Kart Sales is the shop that can get you the equipment you need to get started in the sport. Your son would race in Junior categories, which is 12-15 year olds. To start, I would recommend a Yamaha engine. This way, he can use the same engine as he gets older.

    For Ohio information, contact Adreniline Karting. They can breakdown your options in Ohio.

    I believe there is an indoor kart track in KY – http://www.bluegrassindoorkarting.com/

    Welcome Rob. Just to confirm, do you mean road racing as is in the longer tracks, or just sprint racing, on purpose-built karting tracks? What track are you looking to race at?

    Yes, already removed the posts.

    There seems to be an issue with IP banning, and we are working on it. Thanks.

    Awesome, so it would be like a motocross track…hahaha. Either way, I bet something could be done and would be great for the sport.

    The paddock area looks like the perfect size to build a temporary kart track, something similar to what they do at CalSpeed Karting in California.

    And yes, listen to what TJ said. Number one goal is to have fun no matter what.

    Hi Scott, Welcome to EKN and karting. Please see a private message I sent you. Since you are in the Wisconsin area, I would contact Franklin Motorsports . The Sieracki family is exactly what the sport is about, family. They will steer you in the right direction regarding products as well as other aspects of the sport.

    I recall getting logged off yesterday, so it could have been a system reset while you were posting. Interesting. So far, we’ve had no issues of non-registered members posting, so from a security standpoint we seem to be safe. Thanks.

    Thank you Tony. Never have heard of this situation. Did you have to log in after you posted the reply? Or did you just log in without trying to post something again?

    Correct. There was only one karting shop/vendor on hand during the weekend. If you needed a part, you had to look to your fellow competitors.

    At your weight, I would run the lightest kart you have. I ran a 2010 Birel at Rock Island, and it is light weight for sure.

    I ran extra gas for the purpose of weight. If you can, look for a smaller gas tank or just do not fill it up as high as you are. Every little bit helps.

    I think the Arrow Warrior is built stronger, so thus why it is probably heavier.

    Paul, I weigh in at 190lbs without my racing gear. I had to add weight to my kart his weekend to make the 350lbs. for Briggs Medium. Rob Howden’s Margay had to weigh over 200lbs. to make the 390lbs. minimum for Masters.

    Are you running full bodywork, or CIK style? Is your kart really old?

    Mid-Ohio has a lot more run-off room, along with more tire walls then Watkins Glen does. The Glen has the armco way too close to the racing surface, and it is very unsafe for karts.

    With maybe 50-70 racers there, I believe there was about 10 new drivers that had never raced there before. Here are some factors that I think impacted the numbers this year:

    1. Same racetrack – For the last few years now, people have wanted to see a change in the layout of the track. After they have raced the same circuit for 10 straight years, people are looking for a new challenge

    2. No 6″ wheels – RIGP did not allow them this year, which I think impacted the Clone class heavily and a few for the LO206 categories.

    3. Too many races already – Talking with a number of Midwest racers, Labor Day weekend was the only weekend not at the race track for the first time in anywhere from four to six or eight weeks. There is a lot of racing taking place during July and August, so people look forward to spending three days at home catching up, or sitting poolside or cruising in a boat. Plus, there was a NESKS and Gearup event in Pittsburgh that probably took a number of possible drivers away. Josh Lane drove overnight Saturday to race in Rock Island on Sunday. That’s why he’s called the ‘Wild Thing’.

    4. Street Racing is not for everyone – Just like road racing, some people in the sport do not have the drive to take a chance at destroying a kart by racing on the city streets. Parents fear the worst for their children, thus on TaG Junior entries this year showed that. Open Sprint was a good attempt to bring anyone in, but that failed with zero this year. Did ‘hearing’ bad stories from Modesto keep a few people away, maybe.

    It’s a combination of things. Speaking with a lot of driver/teams from just the Midwest area, Labor Day weekend was the only off-weekend for many. Fitting in a full season from May to September is a tough thing to do. Take away the low numbers, it was a battle for each and every Rock, and their was some great racing in every class.

    It’s something we have no control over. It’s how the poster creates the thread. If they are using the visual, pasting text from somewhere else, the system goes crazy with the code. It’s a bug we want to fix, but at this moment have no control over….yet.

    Great to hear Pat. Welcome to the sport. #OperationGrassroots is the best place to begin if anyone is interested in getting into the sport with no background.
