Jason:

Hi,

go back a page and take a look........ I'll be caliing for some custom made parts. are you ready to enter the world of Karting parts?????

l'll post pics with the motor, Data Ack and new CRG steering wheel installed when I get back from our trailer later today.

Speedie:

as for the roll cage all the karting bodies (IKA,WKA, SKUSA) do not require a roll cage, we have a neck brace, an Snell2k aproved helmet and kevlar full body vest. and kevlar gloves. almost all the wrecks we have seen were a noninjury type except where someone's front wheel hit Jason's rear wheel, her kart was launched up and over Jason's kart and she rag dolled it. we was ok until the kart landed on her arm (breaking it and her liver was torn by a broken tie rod.
both the WKA and IKA looked into the wreck and found that if she woukd of had a cage her injuries would have bee much worse. (all races are taped just for this reason)
the only class that has a full roll cage is run in lower Wis. and the injury to race ratio has been alot higher than without. (Lots of broken arms and legs).




Happy Easter.

protc3 - the adjustable flexible upper deck that you sent me rocked! I tried it out saturday and it was so key in tuning the car. I started with it on the least flexible setting, all the way to the back and the rear end was swinging around too much. I gradually moved it forward and it controlled the back end so much. I didn't have very good results in the races, but I will test it out on a real track where the races are more consistant. But the part is definately trick. It's a very nice piece and can't wait to try it out again. Everyone, this adjustable upper deck for the Xray is very nice. I think once it's in production all you xray guys are going to love this tuning option. I give BMI props for coming out with this great piece. It will help you turn faster laps! Here's Jason's pic, I will take a pic of it installed on my Xray! Thanks Jason!

Hope everyone had a great Easter.
Happy Racing.

John

BTW - the upper deck is 2mm in thickness. The adjustable clamp is machined to perfection. This is a great tool for adjusting the your chassis flex to your driving style and the track!
