Hi guys,
Krista had her first practice in our new kart last Sunday and she did just fine. Weather permitting we're going to go out Monday to either CMP If they're open or GoPro up in Mooresville.
I went out today and picked up 2006 CRG that I'm going to rebuild and fit with a clone (I paid attention this time this one has the 35mm axle). As tempted as I am I won't be a the driver. I'll either sell it or partner with someone and let them drive it (after Krista goes to college all bets are off but for now, I'm just the crew chief).

My main focus for this year will be to my daughter competitive, help build the clone/ 4 stroke class at CMP, and starting to exspose the guys in the south to Zero Error racing components.

So, I guess in some way shape or form, I'll have two karts running in the clones this year. Is there anything else I can do to help fill up the field for 2014?

Bruce J.

Thanks Todd
I might load the kart and bring it out to Palmetto next week and let you look it over. It does look like Monday is gonna be a rain out.

Krista will be down in Fla costing her grandmother but I'll probably come and hang for a bit. If the large seat I ordered comes in this week I might throw it in and ride it around myself.

I almost forgot. I've got a 15t on there now and a 63 on the back. What should I have on there for CMP?

I ordered a 16 and 17. If I can run the 17, it'll make it easier mounting the motors on these. European frames.

Anybody need a kart? I've got 2 I'm rebuilding to run with the clones. I've got a CRG Kalifornia and CRG IRIS.

...Although, I'll probably keep one to drive myself...even if its just to chase Krista around at practice...

I've got Johnny's clone about ready for testing. I shook it down a little out in front of my house. feels pretty good so far. We'll be down At the track Saturday and Sunday shaking it down and finding some speed.

My daughter is excited that there will be another girl in the 4 stroke class! We run 16 and 17 tooth drivers with 59-63 rears in JR 1 in her kart depending on track configuration.

Thanks Randy.
Just read your post about the stolen kart.

Haven't met you yet but I think I can safely say, your a good man.
