Noticed some karts having some problems with the dry slick track on Saturday night. Heres a couple of things to try to tighten up the kart,

1. Narrow the rear wheel track to tighten the rear of the kart. By bringing the tires as close to the chassis as possible places more weight in the center of the kart and will tighten the kart.

2. Left rear tire pressure can be reduced to add more bite to the left side of the kart.

A good rule of thumb is more tire pressure on a wetter track, and lower tire pressures on a dry track.

I know that some other opinions may exist, but these tips have worked for Eric and I for a few years now.
