If tight and push are different to you please lay it out for readers that are going to come behind, explain the differencesSomething very Important when seeking advise on handling issues, make sure you give all details on the issue and where it is happening, but also describe your definition when you say push, tight, loose, because lot's of times your not on the same page with the person your seeking advice
from, and they don't ask they give you advise based on there definition. Example Tight to a lot of people means a push, tight and push to me are different, ( but I would always ask ).
Tight is the whole kart or just right side tight in the turns ( motor may even bog ), or just into the track to much lacking roll speed, Push is kart will not react does not turn. Loose is just the rear of the Kart breaks out, Free is Fast on the edge with good roll speed and a sporty look.If tight and push are different to you please lay it out for readers that are going to come behind, explain the differences
First I'll start off with your in very good hands with Earl he's as good as it gets, I'd run these questions past him as well or he should see this and respond, Max pressure on any tire is as much as you can get away with without sliding, If track has gotten better you should be able to use more air, pump it up 1/2 lb at a time until you slide, If track has gotten good enough making enough grip Maxxis will be faster, I'd talk to Earl and try what he recommends.I’m running clone 375 on a seraph chassis with yellow Vega’s. With help and setup info I’ve found here I’m getting much better and have gotten from being lapped a few times starting to run mid pack, almost cracked the podium positions. All the fast guys at my track are on Vega’s so that’s what I’ve been running, and I think I’m starting to get the tire prep under control with help from Earl at SoCo.
The track has changed its configuration since I start, they added some slight banking and started using calcium, it’s definitely gotten faster and more consistent. I run my Vega’s around 50-55 duro and usually end up around 6psi all around.
First question, should I keep trying to up the tire psi to see if it’s faster, and what is the “limit” on Vega tire psi.
Second, should I just switch to Maxxis and start my tire learning again and maybe come out ahead.
