What pipe does everyone recommend?
Has anyone tried this one?

Also, Why don't we start a spec tire rule.

We could run a cheap tire and everyone would have the same tires.
Just a Thought Cool

I think it would be cheaper to be an open tire rule, because, it seems like some people like to use others old tires, sometimes getting them for free. I bet my used tires off of my shifter would work real well on a clone.jm2c

I know, but some people run $180 tires and they are faster than the guys using cheap old used worn tires. Very Happy

it was just a thought. Question Smile Question

That is just part of racing, no matter what class you choose to run, there will always be someone willing to spend more money to win. The important thing to remember, do the best with what you have, and save your money to buy whatever part or parts you think you need to have.
Spec tires on the local level is not a good thing, it really limits new people from trying out a class, and really doesn't save money.

Spec tires are a bad idea. The latest sticky tires are not going to automatically put you up front in this class like the higher HP classes. And there are some chassis you just can't make work with a spec tire.

With an open tire you can find what works best on your kart and stick with it. I've been running the same set of used Dunlop medium compound tires all season and have been competitive, so I don't think a spec tire is necessary. A spec tire would really limit the chassis that would be competitive, IMHO.

The down side is most people would start using a tire prep and cost would go even higher. Hard to police and the dirt racers can vouch for it.

We allow both 5 & 6 inch rims along with any tire make or compound and any size you want to run. Like DT said with so many makes and years of karts one tire doesn't work.
