I think your last post demonstrates the exact problem here. You seem to have very little experience in the realm of sprint karting.

Sprint karts work and drive differently than any other race car. Not only do you have to consider the fastest possible line around a corner, but also what effect that line and every single steering and throttle input will have on the lift of the inside tire, which is what will make or break your corner speed. Then there are several different racing lines, defensive lines, lines to drive if your kart is understeering, lines to drive if it’s oversteering…

I’m not sure where you get the “sprint karting isn’t on the limit” notion from. Or where you get the idea that we are always fighting to get rid of the “gobs of grip” we have. Or that we are just out cruising around for a Sunday drive.
