    Thx guys…I was getting worried that I would be forced to long hours of towing  to relieve those go-fast demons that haunt me!!  Kinda strange seeing shifter group as the only 2-stroke class among the LO206s in the amped up series!!  Looks like New Castle would be ~6 hour tow…Atlanta Motorsports Park is 4 hour.  I’m currently towing 3 hours from Destin FL to Monticello FL so another hour is not too bad.  Thx again for the help

    thx for the reply Doug.  As I mentioned at my track I am often the only shifter so there isn’t anyone to follow.  When the state race comes to town (Florida Karting Championship Series) I run the shifter masters (I’m an old fart) and finish on the podium the last three years in a mixed class of ICC and Mod Moto (I’m running Mod Moto).  Typical class is at least 10 karts.  Not trying to claim I’m any good just trying to provide a reference.  My braking habit comes from the formula ford days and I was a trailbraker.  So in the shifter I do trail brake which is different than you suggest.  I do run an enduro event with a 4 stroke single speed kart where I do intentionally use trail braking to slightly lock the rear at corner entry to help rotate the kart but in the shifter the bias is set to lock the front just slightly before the rear so trail braking doesn’t help rotate the kart.  The speed and power of the enduro is so much less than the shifter I don’t think it helps me address the racing line question.   my original motivation for the question is to improve…if I’m using slow lines I want to fix it and go faster!!!
