OK good tip on HKE KArting.  I hadn’t heard of Jerry before.  Any comments on the Jim Hall school or anybody out there who can really compare them?

Also I ran into an IKF official at the Santa Maria race who did training but I missed his name or getting his flier.  Any tips on who that might have been?

This is probably a different topic but the Jim Hall book talks about trail braking all the way to the apex…other car driving books talk about it just as you turn in.  I find trying to trail brake all the way to the apex keeps the kart from rotating (I think because the outside rear is the only wheel really braking at that point) and the “just feather off as I turn in” feels better. Feels better may not be faster.  At any rate “just slow down BEFORE” may need a little more definition for me.

Thanks Again,
