  2. Looks like a nice track. What's the top speed on those karts?
     
  3. Wow that's hella expensive James
     
  4. i have my next race first week of Feb, hope to do second place.

    looks like a nice circuit but way too large.
     
  5. That's not a winning attitude, aim for gold!
     
  6. the guy in my division is like 100 pounds lighter than me, I stand no chances even in this event (inside event, mostly drifting)
     
  7. legit karting is sweet

    prepare to lose to tiny skinny virgin ****s tho
     
  8. lol I never understood dual motor karts. looks like a decent track though maaaan. bring brake cleaner and spray it all over your tires while no one's looking.
     
  9. twin engine, nice. I have driven something like that before, they get upto 70 on the straights. shit scary when you are sat pretty much on the ground with stones pinging up off the shitty surface i was racing on and hitting your helmet
     
  10. it's pretty standard from what i can see, especially for a circuit like this (they hold international events and shit here for professional racers)
     
  11. no idea, but I'll be sure to ask
     
  12. makes tyres more sticky?
     
  13. yessirrr. I've never tried it though, because it just softens the tire to a point where it will eat itself haha
     
  14. yeah don't really want to ruin stuff that isn't mine haha
     
  15. there's only shitty indoor tracks near me with often rubbish karts so i generally just drift like crazy and try to run people off the track. though there is a pro outdoor track, but i cant afford my own so ft
    i went to a pretty sweet one in the boons somewhere in australia once too. it was fun

  17. It's a ton of fun, just went on Friday for a company thing. Set fastest lap but the traffic killed me. It was like being Alonso in Abu Dhabi, accept I'm not an insufferable asshole.
     
  18. Better start dieting so as to achieve better lap time <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/tongue.gif"></A>
     
  19. I used to have a membership at Formula Kartways in Brampton. So much fun. You gotta get a bunch of driving enthusiast friends to go with you. Sharing the track with numpties who don't know what they're doing gets frustrating.
     
  20. I always wanted to do something like this.

  22. have done a lot of indoor karting, which is lame.

    only have been karting outside on proper karts once.
     
  23. twin engines? surely its easier to just put a single bigger/more hardcore motor?
     
  24. i hate how expensive it is, otherwise i would do it more often.
