Post Track Rental - 5.1.13

Dad and I rented the track today. It was a nice opportunity to coach him on tuning and driving. He started the day with lap times over a minute and ended the day in the 45 second range. I was able to tune my Tag and play with some of the adjustments. I am now running 40's taking 3 seconds off of my previous best. Neither of us are running competitive speeds for TAG yet, however, we both had a blast.
If you have the time and $75, renting the track for a day is a great low stress way to coach another driver. We used the front straight, and the "starting grid" cut back for brake drills. We used the oval like a skid pad to get used to the side grip, and for brake/apex/acceleration practice. Being able to push the kart, make a mistake, and skid out without fear of causing issues for anyone else made the training day relaxing and fun.

Mike, If you are reading this, it does pull well past 14k now. I also softened the chassis and the back end doesn't seem to step out without excessive throttle now. You did 35 on it before, bet you can drop 2 seconds with the changes.

Hey Rusty,

My Dads coworker had let us borrow a GoPro Hero. I was just wondering where to mount it on a HJC CL16 because I noticed you have one on your helmet and there ist the vent type thing on the top of the helmet.

Thanks,
Nate

Nate,
Our helmets are also HJC CL16's. We put the mount in the "V" depression directly behind the plastic vent. Our mounts are as far forward as they can go and still fit in the depression. Seems to work well there.

Also, do adhesive mounts work for the helmet?

Yup. Use the square one, not the more rounded one. If you set them on a flat surface sticker side down you will see that the square one has a bow to it. If you need the right mount, I believe I have extras.
