moisture on mg yellows

Postby William Lochner » Sun May 01, 2011 10:29 pm

I was wondering how the rain would affect a kart. I dont have a covered space for my kart yet other than a tarp that covers up everything but there is a lot of condensation on the kart and i was wondering if that will affect my kart at all.
thanks

William,

The moisture will rust your kart. Dry it off & wipe it or spray it with oil. You need to find a dry place to store it.

Yup. axles are really bad about it, anything metal should be wiped with WD. Moisture shouldnt affect the tires at all. UV light affects them tho, direct light over the course of day/night/day/night will harden them.
