    I good base to get you running all day would be an extra;

    Chain, gear axle&driver, sparkplug, kingpin, tie rod, spindles R&L, Axle.

    Those items are the most common parts that cut days short

    They usually wont idle thats normal, dont read the plug unless you are driving it hard and then chop the engine(let it die and coast in after driving it hard).

    Pilot

    If you gas it and it blogs before cleaning itself out and taking off its to rich

    If you gas it and it hesitates before taking off its to lean

    Main

    If you rpms are down at the end of the str8 your to fat

    If you stick it at the end of the str8 your to lean ;-)

    Follow Daves advice and you will be in the ballpark and having fun in no time

    If its only 1 corner have your boy straight arm the kart in that corner. Push with arm against the wheel and opposite heel on the heel stop. That should settle that down and keep you from tuning out the rest of the track.

    He may be on the brakes while he is driving or over trail braking. Get into the habit of grabbing the axle in the center, if its to hot to hold or even burns you that is the case. Keep working with the driver to break that habit. Keep grabbing the axle till you can start getting close to the disc without pain.

    Listen to your pants, I dont care what what track you are at with a PRD w/10-93 you are way out of gear. Start pulling teeth, a lot of them…

    Welcome to the beginning of a great Father/son experience. After 10 years of doing what you are beginning I would have to say, love every min it goes by fast. I started Garrett at the same age, growing up at the track has molded my son into a great young man and taught him so many life lessons.

    Advice, keep it fun. If your yelling at your kid, take a break. If your yelling at another Dad, take a breath remember things happen in racing. If your yelling at your wife, take her on vacation she can only go to the track so many weekends a year.

    Don’t keep buying motors thinking your out powered, most likely that kid will be faster then yours in your kart. Buy track time, coaching and tuning help.

    Keep it fun and he will love it forever, if you do it right racing is a great carrot to dangle to make parenting a little easier…

    John,

    GPS is awesome but only if you know how to use the data.

    Use the water temp forsure on you Stockmoto.

    I loved the EGT with a tuneable carb but becareful with the egt in a stockmoto pipe they are prone to crack…

    Yes

    Yes

    A lot

    Table is best with gauge… Or 4×4 under middle of chassis, 2 friends on rear wheels and you jumping on nose check with tape.

    Check with dealer for correct measurement

    If its not the carb or fuel line it could be the coil wires. Tape the to the coil so cornering loads dont cause a short

    ^ Well said and pretty dang close if you are going to get your kid to move up any motorsports ladder.

    Or you can find a small club and race to have fun for about $100 on an old kart, used tires learning on your own.

    Racing is hard and is as much fun as you make it.

    Enjoy it and have fun

    Cant go wrong there, just dont get discouraged.

    LAKC has big feilds with top drivers.

    So just set goals you cant meet and keep your expectations real.

    Get some support to help you from one of the many teams/shops at first but most of all have fun…

    We race Redline oil in 1 series at 32:1 all the time, you need to focus on your jetting.

    Muratic acid should clean that barrel up nicely…

    Agreed. We run our Stockmoto at 32:1.

    110 is best, no less then 98.
