Tire prep was not legal in 2012-for MODERN karts!

I am trying to get some bite for old, hard, narrow vintage tires running twin 15 Hp engines.

This kart will be a triple engine after the vintage event..why? Why not? "too much is just enough"..c

Doc. get a set of tires over to the kart shop and I'll get them soft for you. I still have thing in the shop that will make hard tires to gum balls. Call me on my cell 678-618-3516.
