    X30 SR – so I get splitting a big class – but have not seen WKA, Route 66, or USPKS not maintain some semblance of order when going out to qualify, just seem surprising that a Premiere series would allow this – in most series people line up and are waived out at intervals to qualify in an orderly fashion

    Something seems to be going on and it looks downhill to me – been involved for 10 years – when we started Man Cup had LCQ’s – I remember 46 Jr sportsman at MRP – now RoboPong is gone – looks like TAG is going – USPKS and Man Cup lucky to get 15 karts per class – wondering if the problem w TAG is Leopard 07, 09 and now X30 – not many can afford to keep up with the motor of the day – may have something to do with declining fields – still fun and a great sport but numbers are dropping for some reason spelled money and WKA / USPKS split –

    We transport with the kart resting on the frame -not the wheels – don’t want to put anymore flex on the rear axle or front end

    So does the chassis need to be level on the stand as well to get an accurate reading?

    BTY – when WKA added Cadet Chassis to Yamaha Jr Sportsman – the Competition Committee voted against it – WKA leadership did it anyway –

    follow the money !!!

    WKA allows Cadet Chassis in Yamaha JR Sportsman in Man Cup – costs everyone money – Why?

    WKA allows new tires both days in Man Cup – more money

    USPKS goes from 6″ to 7″ rear wheels for Yamaha JR – costs everyone money -Why?

    At least USPKS requires that the same tire is run both days

    WKA and USPKS won’t allow EDM to save everyone money – Why ?

    Driving the little teams out – look at the recent kart counts at USPKS and WKA –

    Who are these series really for ?

    Too much technology is what has made F1 so expensive and basically a parade – no real racing or passing goes on – the cars go fast and are cool but they rarely pass or race each other – and now they face a dwindling audience – technology has taken the driver out of the equation – Indy car is not as bad as F1 but why do you think they have trouble getting 33 cars for the 500 ? it is all
    becoming cost prohibitive – Racing should be fundamentally about driving – if you want the super technology join the space program
