    General Starting out at bambino’s

    Apologies for being late to the party with this one, it's been a busy couple of weeks! If you were to ask my honest advice, at 7 years old I'd give Bambino a miss entirely and look to get a half decent Cadet outfit to test on until he's old enough. I think the Bambino class is going to go...

    Somebody coming to see it on Sunday. I would have had a few more over in the past week and a half , but we've had to shut away the kids for 10 days due to them both testing positive. πŸ™„

    Technical Comer C50 clutch

    Apologies, I've been uber busy over the past few weeks with racing and work. My one piece of advice would be to get the solid clutch. It's almost maintenance free and stops you having to play "Clutch Spring Roulette" because you never know when they're going to snap. But yes, keep 'em clean...

    Off-Topic F1 Italian GP

    With the Stewards on this one. Max was never truly alongside and the gap was always going to close on the second part of that chicane as Lewis apexed it. The fact that he tried to apex it later and Max still hit him by going over the sausage kerbs probably tells you everything you need to know....

    Driver Journal Team Thirteen Karting

    Well, we're into September and a few races have passed. Round two of the AFKC didn't go as planned. Despite winning two of the heats in the wet, we suffered tyre issues in the third heat and final meaning we finished off the podium. The Dragon Cup at SWKC IKR was a different affair, where I...

    Well it's been a fair few months since our last update. There have been postings, exams, job changings, house moves and all sorts. And if there wasn't that, then there was COVID and then racing when we were able and allowed to. We've been getting more to grips with the Compkart, with some...

    Technical Wheel and Tyre Info

    I would start at 20psi all round. Then adjust dependent on how long the grip takes to come in, or whether it's chewing up the tyres. (That's not taking into account front width, rear width, castor angles etc....)

    Technical Wheel and Tyre Info

    Ah, now there's a question. Very much dependent on the chassis, setup and also whether you're sprint racing or doing Endurance
