  • KT100 - SR-Y Pipe - Flex length suggestions

    I realize there’s a very similar topic here but I didn’t want to hi-jack that thread. I’ve found it very difficult to find flex length suggestions for KT100 using the SR-Y pipe. I think it’s because WKA adopted it and then moved away from it pretty quickly. Our local group still runs them and I’m new enough to karting that I just purchased a pipe used from someone and mounted it the way they had it.

    I’m finally getting past the large scale tuning items with the KT100 and I’m getting down into the details more. In checking today my total flex length (piston face to end of flex) is currently 9.75 which is .25 pas the min. I’m absolutely going to put together a flex section that is the min and test it but was curious if there is any testing info / history here that anyone could share? I’m over weight in my class and getting eaten up at the end of the straights and I’m curious if my longer than min flex is part of that equation (weight is the big factor but every little bit counts).

    Also curious if anyone has insight on why when the SR-Y pipe was introduced by the WKA that it’s intended flex length was 8.5 and was later changed to 9.5?

    Thanks for any insight.

  • Pass for the lead

    I just wanted to share this video from my daughter’s race this weekend. She made a pass for the lead and took the win. She said she made the pass “Formula 1 style”. You can tell she was happy as she crosses the line with a little fist pump. Just had to share as a proud dad moment, especially since it was her fastest night of racing.

  • Deepseat/Ribtect seats

    Just did a full race weekend with my new deepseat. I can report that these seats work as intended. My recurring rib injury was totally unaffected by a weekend of driving and I feel as good as new, basically.
    I think what really helps is that the seat comes a bit higher up on your torso and then sort of wraps around the front of your torso a bit. So, when you are pushed to the side by the force of turning, instead of your lower rib cage taking the force, it is distributed over a larger surface area.
    In any case, if you have rib problems, try one.
