That’s not the way it works for road racing Cory.   At least not where we typically run.  Everyone starts their karts on the stands then lowers them to the ground right in their grid spot.  Most guys use a strap on the wheel or just spin the rear tires by hand.  That’s all well and good when it starts right up but that’s not always the case for our karts (for sure jetted too rich most of the time).  It’s also a function of being close to 50 as opposed to close to 20 (which if I remember correctly, that’s about where you are)!  I know that because I am pretty sure I am driving your old kart.  Your dad sold it to me a few years back.
