2 pit stops, not timed:
Pros: Team will have approximately 2 minutes longer race in 60 minutes race.
Cons: Kart with smaller tank will spend more time fueling and kart with bigger tank may not need to spend time adding fuel. Kart with more crew members will grab current driver and put another one a few seconds faster than husband/wife team, which is not fair. If many karts will enter pit area, only ones in front will be able to re-fuel and change driver, others will have to wait. Karts will drive fast through the pit- dangerous.

2 pit stops, timed:
Pros: All teams will spend exactly the same amount of time in pit. Karts can be pushed to pit exit slowly and safely. Refueling will be done safely. If many teams enters pit at the same time they will leave in the same order,
Cons: We need stopwatches and people responsible to check the time.

Vote and response with your pros and cons.

This is not an official poll. This was created mainly to understand Pros and Cons of 2 types of pit stops or find a better solution.
The decision will probably be made by Michael J. It may or may not be based on this Poll.

If you can't run over the guy on fire, what fun is it?

if yall are so worried about the times then maybe we need some people to become race "officials" and mandate every 2 or 3 pits. ill volunteer to be a stopwatch if im needed.

Timed Pros: there will be time to put small sticker (or marker) on fairing - indication that kart made a stop. There is no other way to make sure team made 2 stop.
