Tire information

Hi, the track I usually run at is a Burris only track. People have given me pointers and tips which I intend to use and try. But, just wondering what everyone’s opinions are to get the tires to fire off and stick? Usually my kart is super, super tight because the tires are not set up correctly. I’ll be turning left and it’s still going straight that’s how tight it is (sometimes). The last prep we tried track tac purple did really well until halfway through the race it fell away and the kart tightened up on me.

What do you do for Burris tires?
 
The rasics prep line is a Burris specific line. The 24/7 in that series is seriously some good stuff to add bite to a Burris. If your tire was good at the start but falls off, it generally means the tire fired too soon when the track had already adequate bite or the tire was too soft. (Overworking the tire)

I think my tires duro was 50-60s. So maybe they just fired off too quickly?
 
What track/ track size/ normal track condition/ location are you racing? What's the numbers for the kart What manufacturer and model kart. Engine package and class
Nose
Left
cross
Camber
Caster
Stagger
Toe
Tire pressure
Duro

The more information you can provide the better you can be assisted. Ken (racing promotor) has alot of knowledge. But sometimes you get lucky and get people that race that track or have in the past.

What do you do for Burris tires?
Do you know that your kart is super tight due to the tires, or due to chassis set-up?
I could be wrong, but it sounds like you have a balance issue where when the tires start working, the rear over-drives the fronts to promote the on-throttle push/tight condition.
It could be that you need more nose weight, less cross, more rear stagger, LR hub moved out, more caster, RF camber change, psi adjustment....and that it's not a tire issue at all. Not saying that it isn't, just trying to get a better handle on what you are dealing with.

Burris prepping can be as simple, or as difficult as you make it.
We have a simple and effective tire program, but even if you're on it, you still need to have a balanced kart set-up.

i agree that part of it could be set up, but I borrowed someone’s tires and the kart was no longer tight and I was running up front. Where earlier I was not that same night. I would be turning and it would still be going straight. I don’t deny set up has some to do with it, but tires are a HUGE issue for me.

Were the staggers the same on the set that you borrowed?
