Re: What adjustment do you make?

I'd guess a combo of Pilson's/Plaster's advice with Ted's will help. Being less-smooth on corner entry will disrupt the rear and reduce push, but it's something you'd need to practice. Think about how you slalomed the CRX and use that kind of input for the entry into corners. Tweaking the rear press...

Re: Today

Moving beyond the course discussion, let's talk about course-working. I had three consecutive runs where I yelled for course workers to check a cone in the offset before the slalom. I stopped the last time to get them moving on it. They apparently called it in like there was nothing wrong. That's no...

Re: 2018 NCAC

I fly back too late on Friday to make it for Saturday. I think I'll hit GoPro instead that weekend if it's nice.

Re: Today

I agree that walking the course I wasn't enamored of it. But driving it, especially in the Miotter, was a ton of fun! The kart was just too loose and the tires too old to get good times.

Paul, I'll take the tires and strut tower bars for $350! If they're all still available.

Re: 2018 Nationals

I've heard that two more days isn't going to happen for staff and chief reasons, thus my ideas for extending the four days they have.

Re: 2018 Nationals

Steve, to the contrary I think there would be more time for socializing and fun rather than less. Up to 100' tall light towers are available with relatively few actually needed to simulate late afternoon/early evening light. It would give the organizers much more leeway to work around adverse condit...

Re: 2018 Nationals

Seriously? And how so? If the National Office foresees continuing to raise the cap to meet demand while still keeping the quality of the event and not extending it to 6 days, what are the options?

Re: 2018 Nationals

I'm starting to think that the super tall stadium lights are where we're heading for Nats. Raise the cap to 1600 and run until 10 or 11 pm. Walks until 1 am and start times of 9 am every day.

Re: Event 6 after action

Agreed that the course was a lot of fun, especially for the Miotter's maiden voyage. I can't believe I didn't cone with those wide wheels on a (relatively, for me) wide vehicle. It was another of those 'it drove better than it walked' courses. I wish I'd remembered my helmet and helmet cam.

Re: learn me some knee surgery

I had a flap of torn meniscus for several years that got worse with more taekwondo so I got it fixed. I'd get the flip a few times each year and HATED it. The MRI showed the flap and the doc I had described exactly what he'd be doing, with two options depending on how it looked when he got in. He en...

Re: Spring Nats

FYI, on the visuals on the West course - they were bad, and even worse for the karts. I went off course on my first run because I looked ahead and missed the apex cone way down and saw the next one. I saw it after I'd turned but it was too late at that speed. At least it saved me from going over the...
