Evinco Tires - Rains?

Post by Brad Galbraith » Wed Mar 07, 2018 7:06 am

I see we need to run Evinco per the rulebook but...I can't find where Evinco makes a rain tire. What do we do about that?

With a reply from Bob in another forum and me finally finding this in the rules:

"NTK CLUB TIRE RULE: All Kid Kart, Junior and Senior classes will run Evinco tires for club
sprint races at NTK, including Winter Series races. Tire compounds are open, unless an exception
is made in the Structured Class section of this rule book. This rule is subject to review each year
depending on sponsor availability. Rain tires are open."

However, after spending the day at the track and being told that the spec tire is Evinco Blue... and seeing nothing in the Kid Kart section specifying that I have to ask...

1. Are blues really the spec tire? If so, where is that stated?
2. Why wouldn't you run reds? I get it, Kid Karts don't generate much lateral force but I'd think reds would be good...but then again I'm new to karts.

The “Evinco” Rain Tire is the MG rain tire.
