Having raced at all of the dirt kart tracks in Arizona, I have some tips and advice for you. The first race of the Arizona State Series is at Speedworld in Phoenix.

Your setup at Caplin should work pretty well as the banking of the track is similiar to Caplin. Dont let this track scare you, it is pretty safe because of the banking. Anyway, Eric and I had a blast at this track last year winning a heat race, and starting on the front row of the Yamaha Heavy main event before loosing an engine due to a lot of dirt in the environment.

I would run a good clean air cleaner, and coat it well with KN filter spray. A pre-filter is a must.

These tracks are very abrasive on tires. Dont expect to run your SS-11's for very long. You might get away with a heat race, but I would not attempt anything other than Burris ss-22's or higher, or better yet Maxxis HT3's.

I would start w/ your Caplin gearing as a baseline, and adjust to the track conditions. If you can hold speed in the corners the Caplin gearing should be really close. If not, then you may need to add some teeth for the straights.
