Triton Rear Bumper
Interestingly, I asked the same question to James at PRC in an earlier thread (before the crash), and never got a response back from him. I did get some comments from other karters with tritons and they didn't say which was preferred, but that they are being run both ways. If you don't get a better response this time, I'd try it both ways and clock the laps to see which is faster. I have two tritons, one with it loose and one with it tight. The loose one runs a tad more free, with the other one a bit tighter in and out of the turns. If you run it loose, be sure to safety wire it to the frame at each end (ex. at the bolts for the rear of the rear floor pan....make a clip for each side). It's just another way to tune the handling characteristics.
