What is nitrogen used for in go kart racing?
For me I'd say it's more a personal preference than an advantage, it's drier and not supposed to raise pressures as quick or as much, but if you run internal prepped tires there's not much difference, for me not worth the added cost and hassle of filling tanks, yet alone hauling around a pressurised tank.What is the advantage over normal air?
My CO2 tanks were not insulated, were about 2 feet tall, less than 12 inches in diameter, and I was told the pressure only turn the lights off but all will in – you will and a will and was 250 psi. One tank lasted almost a week of normal usage at the races. Air tools and tires.Al,
point of interest: (from Linde gas company)
"------- CO2 is transported, stored and handled in liquid form, either at ambient temperature (in cylinders or non-insulated storage tanks at a pressure of 45-65 bar) or refrigerated (in insulated tankers and storage tanks) at temperatures between -35°C and -15°C and pressures of 12 to 25 bar.--------"
