If your going to remove the wing as Sam noted you may want to add or move physical ballast to the back of the kart to simulate what the down force does for balance at slower and medium speeds. Wing is down force which is basically pressure weight as well as it’s own scale weight, eliminate drag with no wing but maintain grip and balance with ballast.  Scale the kart with wing, remove the wing and led it back to balance. All this is based on having a driver that already needs led to make weight, if your taking it off to make weight your hosed anyway. Ya can’t just remove the wing without adjusting something or it’s gonna rotate off the front like a mother.

 

Brian, your sprag body is shipping today. Sorry for the delay we have been upside down here due to the IKF nationals.
