    Anybody into Karting?

    Just bought my first kart so pretty excited!

    She is an Arrow AX8 with a Rotax FR125.

    Here she is!

    But yet to put her on the track!

    Now, here is the thing, I know sweet FA about karting aside from what I have read (I am one of those people that once into something I will attempt to learn everything I can about it) so I have been extensively researching.

    So I was wondering, if there are any karting gurus on here, what tips and tricks are there regarding kart setup, tyre pressures, alignment setup etc that will help me. Also anything else you have learned (maybe the hard way?) that could save me some pain and money!

    Otherwise just show me your Karts haha!

    I'm just wondering:

    1. How you're going to fit in it
    2. Where in WRE you intend using it?

    Haha, surprisingly I fit quite nicely! The size is deceiving, its 1.4m wide and 1.8m long!
    There is an awesome club up here in Maunu, great facilities and newly extended track, club do trips all over the north island to different tracks too so will be quite cool! (Will take my rifle when heading south!)

    The type of carting I like is lugging a deer back to the hut in the bush,
