+1 on what Gene said. The insurance doesn't cover it. How long until he is 15? He will be a contender ftd every event

He'll turn 15 in April of the 2017 season.

I was wondering if my son could just run unclassified? At the end of the day, I just want him  to have fun.

On a similar classing note.

Is a 125cc kart eligible for JA? or is it KM?

125cc is KM.  That's what he ran at the last event.  I think it's just old info from the JA kart.
Gene Cooley

I don't think there's any problem there Gene. Tyrel's  just outgrown four cycles, there too slow. I figured this might be a problem with his age, he's kind of stuck in the middle. It sort of seems unfair that if you're capable of running a higher class kart but you can't participate because of your age. I guess I need to talk to Audie about getting a refund for the practice event and withdraw him from future events.

I will always respect the rules but I find it ironic that this age thing has to be a problem; we live in an age now where you can have teenagers running in formula 1...you would think the rules would catch up with that reality.

I wasn't sure how to register Tyrel's kart; his type of kart is KA, but he's not old enough to run KA, so that's why I put it in as JA...which does allow some 2cycles.

This was by far my son's best outing this season! He was so excited to be able to place 2nd behind Big Ben, lol

Here's his best 2 runs...the second 33.49...only 2 tenths off of Ben's FTD!

He looked good out there Tony!!!!!!  Glad you installed the PRD for him.  2 stroke FTW!

Thanks James (and Gunny!) I  think we may have had the PRD mounted alot sooner, but we were still contremplating going to more events at GOPRO Motorplex in N.C.

We may just mount the 4cycle on the Road Rat chassis...get some more use out of that chassis.

Here is a cool video of the little open wheel cars like Ben and I are driving in action on a road course!

Hmmm...sounds interesting. I may have to look into this more.


There could possibly be a place for something like this at the new 2 mile road course at Dominion Raceway in Thornburg, VA...only 45min north of Richmond.

Looks like we're gettin' a few more folks interested in single seaters! I'll post pics here from our events...and welcome others to do the same!

1st up; The Green Machine!

Really fun course today, James. Good job!
68  Events / Autocross / Re: Practice #1 on: June 04, 2015, 02:41:04 PM
I'll be glad when the problems are worked out on registration for the next events; I thought for sure I would be out there last weekend, but a broken brake line fitting changed that...getting really restless, lol

Tony, the kart was running great!

Thanks, James. Cool pics too!

Here's my son's best run of the day. We didn't have the best gear in for competition, but a 19th overall fastest time of the day of 36.034 is far better than we expected. We're stoked that the kart is running so much better this season...can't wait 'til the next one!

Here's Tyrel's 1st and best run (73.353). I'm not sure what happened to his clutch on his other runs; it seems we're making progress little by little each event, lol

That place is bumpy like hell. It's bad enough in a car, I'm not sure how much time you would spend up in the air with the kart anyway. LOL

Cheers
Engelbert

Thanks for the heads up...perhaps I should raise the ride height and weigh him down a little, lol. Sunday will be a nice test day at Ft. Eustis for a newly installed clutch anyway Smiley
73  Events / Autocross / Re: BRR autocross in Verona this Sunday 4/12 on: April 11, 2015, 04:38:42 PM
What a bummer...just found out Tyrel can't participate tomorrow 'cause the Youth Stewart for the event can't make it Sad

Oh well, I guess it's off to Ft. Eustis Kart Track for a nice test session Smiley

Here are my photos. Sorry it took me so long. Thanks to my brother-in-law, John Kirby, for taking the 3d heat photos.

David

great pics as always...a little suprised you didn't get any of the open-wheel cars/karts?
75  Events / Autocross / Re: BRR autocross in Verona this Sunday 4/12 on: April 07, 2015, 08:16:48 PM
My boy is looking for more seat time in his kart, so BRR here we come! Smiley
