      Walt, I think I’m picking up on your humor.. FYI, I have been involved in professional Motorsports all my life and several years at the highest level in drag racing on a multi time championship team. I can tell you I saw more broken necks, backs, arms, legs, noses, etc in competitive cheer than I ever saw in drag racing. All star cheer leading is not pom poms and ra ra. It’s hard core with very complicated tumbling and stunt sequences where girls fly 20-30′ in the air. My daughter had full knee surgery at 10 because she was competing skills that most 16-18 year olds in the country couldn’t dream of doing.  If you want to see some crash compilations, Google Gary Scelzi crash brainerd, or Topeka, or Chicago.  I got to witness those right from the starting line and pic up pieces of the car for 1000′ after. As far as asking Senna, I could say ask Scott Kalitta, Blaine Johnson, Darrel Russel, dale Earnhardt and so on and so on.  What about families that die in car accidents every day? I like my or my daughters odds better in racing. Please don’t think I’m upset or jumping on you. Just throwing my thoughts out there. Anyone feel free to chime in.

      Hey Guys,

      Thanks so much for all of the good information!! Please keep it coming!! What would be a good resource for leaning the basics of tuning?  I am used to drag racing where the tuning is more power and application where it seems like in most Karting classes, those are the 2 things you can’t mess with, which I think is great but now your into chassis tuning which things like ballast, grip, tires and chassis flex are things I know zero about.  This is why I am thinking that taking the hit and buying a beginner Kart to allow me to learn the basics and learning what I want and what Im lacking as I go may make the most sense even if it doesn’t make the most financial sense.  Plus, the less adjustment I have, the more likely the Kart will run decent and allow my daughter to build her skills behind the wheel without my tuning holding her back.  Kinda the same thought as what Eric was saying.  If I’m off base, please don’t hesitate to chime in.

      Thanks Everyone!!

        Thanks for all of the good info Pat.  I am hoping she will want to run there soon.  We were at go pro a few weeks ago on a saturday and there was nobody there.  She actually wanted to go run, but they wouldn’t let her.  They said Jr non members were not allowed to run on the weekend.  So I guess I will have to try and find a time during the week to get here there.

      Hey Pat,

      That is awesome!!! Thanks so much for sharing!!!  Brooke had a really good private at VLK early Saturday morning. She is finally finding speed and getting more comfortable with it.  I went out with her at the end of the private and raced a 8min heat with her. I’m no rockstar, but I can run within a second or two of the club racers. I went after it as hard as I could for 8min and she was right there on me. The only way I could break away a little was on the straightaways because I stay in it longer. I think that is the last time I will be able to beat her. Was A BLAST!! She wanted to go try gopro this weekend, but they said Jr’s are not allowed to run (rentals) on the weekends.  I saw you are in huntersville? So are we.
