Cut off your left leg right at the hip.  This will reduce braking and thus increase your speed upon turn in.  It will reduce your weight by approximately 15% and thus improve your chances to compete.  I found it very important to re-scale the kart as the balance will be significantly off.

Alternatively, you can cut off the right leg and simply pin the gas pedal on permanently.  This is a little better for kart balance as the engine is on the right side.

Good Luck!
