    Ed Portz, that’s the funniest thing I have ever seen as applies to Karting!! Especially since I run a Rotax. I’m still laughing!!! LOL doesn’t quite cut it right now!!

    I was at a Road Race this week end and got my back side handed to me by two friends out with their brand new X30’s. Couple the tight turns with a tall gear ratio and the X30 seemed to have a much broader torque span. When my Rotax fell off the pipe I didn’t stand a chance.

    NASCAR drivers always seem to find the wall with no Safer Barriers.

    Don’t think you gave the EVO enough time? I would take it to a Sprint track and see if you can get it running there. Jumping from engine to engine is a head ached in itself.

    Ok I put a picture! JMO it seems to me that you are trying to limit pictures going on your site? Unlike anything I have seen on other Forums……..Thanks for the help.

    This is how I get the tire off! Add a little Simple Green to reduce drag and pull on the bar.Tire Removal

    So I have to put it on another Site before I can put it on your site? Will it work from Facebook?

    Jack, Nck’s site is behind the times! If you are on Facebook they announced on there too. We will be running Big Willow. We ran there 3 times last year. They started a Forums and I didn’t see a link on their site. http://www.nckroadracingforum.com/?forum=417658

    The forum says we are running on “Streets” Which is wrong.

    OK So=Cal Karters, pick a day or run both days. Stock Honda goes over 100mph at Big Willow!

    Pretty sure that would be a No. I have been racing with NCK for awhile now and they haven’t had enough Rotaxes to make an only class. I run a Rotax in the Tag Enduro class and Tag Heavy.

    I enjoyed the show. Reminded me of another show a few years ago, the name escapes me now. I would like to see some action where the adult classes are shown though. Also they need to show more of the technical side of karting, ie explain a little about the classes and the motors, might help entice new karters?

    I didn’t read all of these posts. I just glanced over Mylaps for the Cal State Champs. I am not much into sprint racing any more, but that seems to be a lot of different classes right there! Must have took forever to run them all?

    The track rental fee must be the highest of all tracks NCK goes to. And Sound limits are a pain, but next to Sonoma, Laguna is a very close 2nd for the fun factor. JMO

    It was about 45 degrees in my garage the other day when I had to open a new bottle. Had a race on Sunday and needed to mix up a couple of gal. I was using a screw driver to pull out the cap and it wouldn’t pop out, the cap came off without turning it!! About hit myself in the chin! I guess I need to use a heat gun!

    I’m on the heavy side. Last time I ran the shifter at Sonoma I ran a 18/22. Prob would try a 17/21 next time. Both Laguna and Sonoma have good air. Not sure what to suggest because of that pump around. But I have run 55/175 at both tracks. With a 178 main in practice.
