Go with the three disk. A single disk is for JR's. You will smoke the single disk up. 11 / 86 is a good starting point. Have you driven before ?
I didn't see the yamaha post till this morning, sorry for the wait on the reply.
Doctor say that I can go drive, check the bloodpressure and LET'S SEE.

Whoot!!!!!!!!!

George, wasn't sure if you run an 11 tooth driver or if that was a typeo? I run a 10 tooth driver.

In the can classes, I try to save the clutch a bit so I set it to engage between 8400 and 9000 rpm.

Jim, the gates usually open pretty early for the Winter races. You'll probably start seeing karts on the track around 9am, and controlled practice will start around 10am (depending on the number of people wanting to practice). I will be working the grid Saturday, so if you need any assistance with your kart getting it on/off the stand, or starting, I'd be happy to help you.

Jim,
I'm glad to see you made it out to the track for a race. I hope you had fun despite the cold.
