What would cause someone to be .2 or more faster on the first lap but overall slower throughout the race? My son raced a kid a couple weeks ago and got ran over on the first lap because the kid was .2 faster than everyone on the first lap. He passed my son and the first place kid instantly but after the first lap my son and the original leader were consistantly faster than him. We saw this in qualifying too. His first lap was .2 faster than everyone but his fastest lap was .5 slower. Could this be caused by a smaller clutch gear or more air pressure or maybe his tires just firing off earlier than everyone else? Normally this isn't an issue because you always have someone faster on the first lap and they aren't always the fastest in the race but this kid literally runs over anyone in front of him and/or tries to wreck them on the first lap. I'm just trying to get ahead of them and figure out how my son can gain speed the first lap. We feel like our gear ratio is working overall at this track and our tires seem right but we really don't want our stuff wrecked just because he's slower on the first lap.
