Air pressures and weight distribution.

Recommended Posts

With my kart on scales, I was playing with air pressures to see how it affected weight distribution. To my surprise, it didn't seem to make that big a deal. I played with several different combinations and couldn't get more than a pound or pound and a half to shift to the left rear (where I wanted it). These are not exact numbers, but basically the LF is 35#, the RF is 65#, the LR is 50# and the RR is 100#. This with 15# of lead very near the LR shaft bearing and the motor mounted very close to the axle. Maybe because the chassis flexes more than a Stock Car, I dunno. What I do know, is it ain't worth worrying about!
