    All about fun. :) I think I found a sweetspot with the setup, for me anyway. I'll post it up later, you or someone else might find it useful. :)

    Racing and practicing with the faster guys will always help. It's a very generous bunch here Jase. I'm not at the front but not too far off now. When I started in this group I was more like 5 seconds off the pace.

    That's the best I could come up with. I did a 1:13.8 with 5L of fuel or around a mid 1:14 with full fuel.
    With such a fast but twitchy kart, it might not suit everyones driving style. I use the throttle and brake to turn. If you are mid corner, slightly ease on the brakes and the back will come around.

    I also bought a headset on Monday, but Aus Post decided a week wasn't long enough for it to arrive. So my apologies for being micless again.

    That was great fun. Thanks everyone.
    I don't know what happened in the first race. As soon as I touched the brake I speared into the wall, then in my confusion I drove it into the gravel trap.

    Not a clue what happened. Oh well. Picked up my first win in race 2. So I was happy after that. :)
    Plus this great little battlepack in race 3. :D


    I wish I knew how to work the replay controls better. I wanted it in the helicam for the whole thing. Oh well.
    :thumbsup:

    Thanks Eric! If it wasn't reverse grid and you didn't get caught up you would have won by half a lap again. Great driving. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thanks for the races again last night. Good fun.
    Tricky car. I wasn't comfortable with it to push it anywhere near it's limit, as it seemed to snap quickly when it went. Haha. Maybe the short wheel base, not sure... ;)
    Good lesson in car control. :p

    Thanks Sean :):)
    I did a couple of laps in the USF2000. It's like the complete opposite of the Superkart. Not fast and twitchy at all. :laugh:

    Hello gents, I enjoyed the racing on sunday night and the banter between drivers which you don't normally get. Hopefully I didn't get in the way too much.

    I will try to join another race when I can.
    Cheers
