Glad to see you are figuring out what makes the kart work for what you are doing with it.
And…. The guy who passed you appeared to blow up/stick the motor on the straight. I was noticing how he appeared to have more power than you did, until it went bang. Sometimes safer jetting wins the race.
On another subject, Congratulations on your Nationals win, Carter. Can you say that running the kart improved your performance as a driver in the SSM car?
