New to Karting...asphalt question


New member
Hello all-
Ive been lurking on the forums but decided it was time to post an actual question. I’m brand new to Karting this year, 34 yrs old 6’2 250lbs. Ive done a couple dirt oval nights but am looking to try a local asphalt oval as well. Its 1/10 mile track. I currently run a clone on twister chassis. Still very much learning about the craft. Ive been running the previous owner’s dirt setup at my dirt track as I learn to drive.

tires: LF: green maxxis Ht3 10.5 x 4.5-6, RF: pink maxxis HT3 12x9.00-6, RR: pink maxis HT3 12x9.0-6, LR: yellow Vega 11.5x6.0-6

I would love to try asphalt and would appreciate ANY advice. Not worried about being super competitive to start. Just want a good base to start learning.
Thanks all,

What about just spending a couple of race days at the asphalt track, asking questions, looking at set-ups? You going to need information on tires, ratios, Weight percentages.
