    ^^^I think you meant to say Lon G’s for brake/excel

    Working with young kids GPS is a must. It will show you grip levels, braking points, coasting and when they get to the throttle.

    RaceStudio is a very powerful program most only use less then 10% of it.

    Having a kid under 16 racing adults in cars, I have seen that the kids are better then most adults.
    Once they figure out the loading of a sprung suspension and gearbox their years of karting show through.
    They should be heavily scrutinized when applying for their comp license but after that their age should not be a factor.

    We run a 38mm in Stock Moto so 39 will be fine, save your money.

    I have told you what you need to do to get it to run, we ran pilots in the 40’s when we ran a restricted Jr125.

    It should not idle, the motor fuel requirements are much different then a bike.

    Jets are cheap, put them in and you will be close.

    New jets get clogged just as old ones do, run a filter.

    Trust me go run it and report back, I gave you a fat set up but will “rip” at all rpms.

    edit: 32:1 is what we always run

    Remember the 2 jets work together at WOT.

    If the 2 motors should be jetted close then try 168/55/dgj2

    We ran that just fine with the AA of 2000ft

    Fatter pilot to start, those are mighty lean.
    If it boggs off corner lean it out, if it hesitates then fatten the pilot.

    Sounds fat on the pilot.

    We have a track that the AA gets over 7000ft. We dont usually get down to a 160, but close, but our pilot is much lower then yours.
    But that is with a 99 CR125.

    Good Luck

    Think of it like you torquing the head of a car. Start from the inside work out, starting with just tighten the down, spinning the axle between each cassette. Just like Ric is saying…

    As for motor lean it out a little because you wont be twisting it so much…

    Just watched it. It was great. We as karters want to see more but John Q Public and average Joe have a very short attention span so the 30 mins shows are the best thing for the sport. 2 thumbs up.

    All motors are different, we had 2 motors and one ran best at 1080 and the other at 1150. As for how hot is too hot? Well aluminum melts just over 1300…

    The minute you get off track level the tires off. You will never have the same pressures at first on all 4 corners. Certain tires get worked more then others. So using your example level them all down to 12.5 hot. When they cool they may have 4 different pressures, that’s ok. Now next session they will all heat up to 12.5 (barring any crazy weather changes) . Now you can adjust the pressures to suit the drivers/karts needs. Do that cold by either adding or bleeding down all 4 tires by the desired amount. Hope that made sense. That should get you rolling…

    That was great fun to watch, but heartbreaking as well.

    Highs are higher and lows are lowers when racing with the big boys.

    Fouled a plug? We tend to run a little leaner pilot in the rain.

    They are stiffer they tend to add grip
