Hope you coming with a team - can't let outsiders come and win everything in yuh hometown!

Similar suggestion with two ramps made to get some speed, but we still have time to finalize.

Agree on the suggestion that the "bearing" wheels may not be effective.

Great initiative , have to agree with Rassey on the elevated start , this would be the most even form of start . For example if you have myself pushing , I have pushed a car and driver with a locked up diff recently vs a power plant of the resident strong man Uncle Duane , who may have (operative word ) recently pushed a lawnmower ........ you get the picture .

The advantage is assigned to the strong man team or fast legs team not necessarily the best built cart or good driver .

I do not appreciate your tone sir

but yes I agree the ramp start is a good idea.
No one but the driver should be touching the kart.
It will also give the opportunity for brakes to be utilized and the timing system with red-light and reaction time will all come into play properly. Come off the brake too early and you red-light!

Ok so we have a position on the basic rules re Box Kart dimensions:

(1) maximum / minimum weight or weight classes - free
(2) overall kart footprint dimensions – not wider than 3 feet nor longer than 6 feet
(3) max wheel dimensions – 16’’
(4) and number of wheels not less than four.

Space for a number on the sides.
