Danny,
I call it the fly zone because you can easily have 4 wheels in the air. Brian Spek demonstrated that this past weekend. He was a good 1 ft off the ground. Most are going to back off so they don't fly. It's the big drop off after turn 1. Some of us call it the skateboard ramp Very Happy

Like I said there were a few and one in particular that had way too much Testosterone and if he doesn't calm down either himself or someone else will get hurt. If I was racing in the class or the race director we would have a talk.

John, good points. I've noticed some air there as well, mainly on the quick shifter guys. I get fishy around there but don't think I get toooo much air, .!

Will have to say hi next time you're around!

I have reverse wings mounted on the underside of the kart to maximize my air time and decrease downforce.

seriously there are lots of places to pass on this circuit and no need to bump anyone in order to get by.

looking forward to the dip-fix so we can avoid more repairs and broken parts!

All I'm going to say is there are a lot of places on the track that separates the men from the boys... and that's probably good.

When I was looking at Brandon's Mychron lap times from AMP. I noticed three "heartbeats" on the graph. There were three times per lap that he went airborne enough to cause 1000 RPM spikes! I would hate to think what that does to engine longevity.

But man is it fun! It adds so much excitement and extra areas for kart control. Track is a ton of fun as long as the flag guys are doing it correctly Smile

I don't think it was airborn on Rotax Jr - at least I didn't see it on Cameron's laps.. but cresting a hill helps to lose grip, especially when turning, which spins the rears increases revs. Echo Tebbe's comments, huge fun there.
