To get the most potential from your kart, you need your engine on song. That's why understanding your carburettor and the correct settings can extract that last bit of potential.The first six letters in Motorsport spell Motor, so we know we need good performance to be competitive. This episode is trying to teach drivers and mechanics the understanding of a lean or rich carby and how to best tune their engines.With more technology available to drivers these days, mechanics are able to download and see the air fuel mix ratio and lambda settings at their disposal after a session and then tweak the carby settings.Hope you've enjoyed this episode of our Kart Class Podcast.

When it comes to driving, does talent get you further up the grid, or will hard work prevail?Having coached over a 1000 different drivers in the past 12 years of my business, I have seen some extremely talented drivers. Whilst other drivers take longer to pick things up & as a result may take 12 months to get up to speed.So does having a natural talent make you better or can all drivers achieve similar results on the back of dedication, asking questions and the will to learn?As I look back on my karting career, things didn't come naturally to me, I was off the pace for 12 months, and by the 18 month mark I got my first trophy. The will to want to always improve & with the right guidance, I was able to build confidence, resilience and that's when things turned for the best.Hope you've enjoyed this episode of our Kart Class Podcast.

No matter what sport you are in, coaches are available to athletes to help guide them from their own experiences.On this podcast episode, we look at the benefits of having a coach for your karting career & how they can actually help you. For some drivers this will be in the form of a driving aspect, others might benefit from the technical nuance a coach has.

Rental Karting Tips

Rental Karting Tips

2021-08-3107:55

Our host 18 x Australian Champion David Sera discusses rental karting, as we know that some drivers treat it more seriously than just a social event with their friends.Rental karts aren't the same as racing karts; they're heavier, have likely being involved in incidents previous to your session, don't have setup adjustments and the tyre quality always changes from kart to kart.The thing is, that with some basic racing knowledge drivers can still overcome the differences in karts to be competitive at all times so in this episode we wanted to cover some basic points.The biggest thing to take away from this episode is that not all the same techniques translate to racing karts also, with the power to weight ratio being the biggest factor behind this.If you've enjoyed this episode of Kart Class, be sure to click subscribe and leave us a review.Kart Class offers karting drivers advanced digital training programs of all skill levels.

Kart Setup Sheets

Kart Setup Sheets

Our host 18 x Australian Champion David Sera discusses the importance of creating or having a setup sheet to fill in your notes at the kart track.So many times we go to the track, make adjustments then forget about what has worked and what didn't. I can recall on many occasions where I raced at a track 12 months apart yet still looked back to my notes to give myself a baseline to start with.This might be gear ratio, temperature of the day and also tyre pressures. With many race events these days limiting the amount of practice available, it's important drivers and mechanics are switched on from session one so they aren't wasting valuable laps.Drivers will also learn more by reading back on notes so they get a better understanding on how the kart is behaving on track.If you've enjoyed this episode of Kart Class, be sure to click subscribe and leave us a review.Kart Class offers karting drivers advanced digital training programs of all skill levels.

Our host 18 x Australian Champion David Sera explains why in some cases your karts performance is stronger at the end of a race.When we have longer races at major events or in finals, it's a good idea to have your kart setup so it peaks towards the back half of the race. But in the heat races which are normally shorter we don't want this as we can't keep our track position and are vulnerable to others overtaking when the kart isn't performing at it's peak.I try to offer some tips around what's causing your kart to come on so late in a session and areas you can adjust to switch it on faster when required.If you've enjoyed this episode of Kart Class, be sure to click subscribe and leave us a review.Kart Class will be offering advanced digital training programs to cater for kart racing drivers of all skill levels.

Our host 18 x Australian Champion David Sera explains how to manage your older tyres so you don't find yourself going slower when you put on new rubber.Tyres are generally one of the largest expenses associated with kart racing, so as drivers and mechanics we want to try squeeze every last ounce from the tyre life for our practice days. But this can get us caught out into making the kart handle amazingly, but then when we fit new rubber to the kart our times go slower.We try find ways to minimise this happening so you're better prepared next time at a kart race.If you've enjoyed this episode of Kart Class, be sure to click subscribe and leave us a review.Kart Class will be offering advanced digital training programs to cater for kart racing drivers of all skill levels.

Our host 18 x Australian Champion David Sera explains the importance of race craft.How many times have we heard..... "We should've won, we were the quickest?" Well ultimately, in racing, it's not always the fastest kart that wins the race. Race craft is hugely important for drivers to understand so that they can place their karts in the right position, understand the ideal time to make an overtake, when to work with another driver and when to defend.If you've enjoyed this episode of Kart Class, be sure to click subscribe and leave us a review.Kart Class will be offering advanced digital training programs to cater for kart racing drivers of all skill levels.

Our host 18 x Australian Champion David Sera explains why some drivers are continually spinning out in the wet weather and don't know why it's occurring.When the heavens open up, it isn't pleasant for driving. But the fact is, kart racing still takes place in the rain, so we need to be able to adjust our driving to suit the conditions.I've seen countless times drivers getting caught out and spinning in the rain lap after lap and they can't identify why it is happening. I try to point out some areas as a driver you can alter to give yourself the best chance in the slippery conditions.If you've enjoyed this episode of Kart Class, be sure to click subscribe and leave us a review.Kart Class will be offering advanced digital training programs to cater for kart racing drivers of all skill levels.
