So, we switched from a Birel R31, which is a stiff chassis, to an iKart, which is very soft (28mm) and can twist a lot. He is still sawing and over steering in the turns. I’ve come to the conclusion that the problem is in his driving style, and he needs to slow down entry into turns, turn the wheel less, and get a LOT smoother. ¬†Rather than adapt the chassis to his style (he is faster with a stiffer rear, but this likely means an overall slower kart), I am going to work on getting him to change his driving style to get faster with a faster/softer kart.
