For those of you who have been to Andretti Karting and taking the Sprint Cars out on the circle track.... the driftability of them is straight up lame. They are slow, heavy and just not that fun.
So as of Tomorrow (Sept 20th) Andretti is allowing everyone to take the RIMO karts out on the oval track for some slide action. Let me assure you.... its a ton of fun, especially when you and three others are diving into the corner sideways all at the same time.
"Drift nights" are only on Weds and Sundays.... all day long. The cost remains the same as a road course race and/or Sprint car race; $20. And up to 4 karts are allowed on the circle track at a time. If there is a good response, Andretti will be hosting a small compitition with a cash purse and prizes.

If you guys are up for it.. let me know. I'll be Andretti tomorrow night.
I'll try to get some video up asap.

GA prohibits "community" karts exceeding 26mph. The RIMOs are governed to 24mph. However, we will be ungoverning them for this particular event.

yep... every Weds and Sunday. Come on out ... I"ll be there pretty much all day.

about a dozen of us went Weds night and had an abosolute blast!! 4-5 karts deep, completely sidesways within inches of one another. Ask anyone that went... its well worth the money.

sorry fellas, couldn't make it. Im still in VA.

Dominic.. .just FYI. The Andretti Track supervisor is reallyyy picky about cameras on the track (for insurance reasons). Not saying you shouldn't take a camerea, just be weary of the track supervisor. He's a tall, lanky, shaved-head guy. And a striaght up dickhead.

haha... werd. Ive tried to tell them that its too pricey, but they didn't care. As long as they are filling up the schedule every night (which they are) don't expect the prices to drop.

haha thats why you pick out one of them with good tires and then turn the govener screw on it.. while everyone is gettin bucleked in

if you drive it a couple of times and turn the screw a little each time.. you will be rockin and rollin in no time!

thats how scubasteve set or aquadude whoever set the records...

you're right, but don't let the track officials see you doing it. They'll toss you without hesitation.. And as an x-track lead, I can assure you that the track staff has a keen eye for spotting that stuff.

But since I don't work there anymore :D.......
there's an easier way to get more power without unscrewing the gov. With your right hand, reach under the plastic engine cover infront of the gov screw. There's a thin, metal rod about 6" long there. Lightly push that rod towards the front of the kart.... this will by pass the gov.
But you didn't hear that from me ;)
