WE ARE LOOKING FOR  INTEREST IN THE BIG PIPE CLONES.

A.K.R.A has  2013 rules for this class. 

I hear there are about 5 here locally.  If you are interested in running them in the Winter Series, please let me know.

** Also, would like to see if we can get  about 6 or so to  run the indoor races**

please  post interest

Thank You

Jason

And why do the main people crying about the weight go to other tracks and sign up for the lite class and never cry over there . when the have the heaver class that they HAVE to have over here .

I think we need to find out who is committed to running the clone class next season and get a kart count . We should be able to find some middle ground somewhere. Hopefully a few of those predator guys will move up and help fill some of our classes out.

I'm probably one of the heaviest guys at the track besides my brother, I weighed my self before the Cajun indoor and I weight 330, and with the kart I'm around 500. I may joke about the weights for classes but I'm mainly out there to have fun. It doesn't matter how much you weight to a point, if you can drive and has a handling kart then you will be competitive. I have flatheads and animals and I have ran them against the 360lbs karts and I can keep up if I don't get tired

I PROPOSE  ALL THE  FAT BASTARDS  SHOW UP ON THE SATURDAYS OFF....  AND WE  RUN AROUND THE TRACK FOR A  COUPLE OF HOURS...

THEN MAYBE WE  CAN FIX THIS WEIGHT ISSUE.

I would much rather run my animal but I will run a big pipe clone at the 375 heavier weight.  Jason are you gonna run with us and are you gonna be putting Goat P on your tennis shoes?  Grin  LOLOLOLOLOL

I really dont know why two race teams at our local track have issues with each other, to be honest I really dont give a $&%@ and really dont like reading or hearing about the drama! Me and my family are here to have fun and hopefully eventually become competitive. I know that no matter what class I race in my big ass is going to be over weight and I also understand that adding 50+ pounds of lead sucks. Luckilly my sons kart only has about 30# on it and my wife picks it up every race weekend no problem.

If we are going to run these clones all in one class both sides of the weight spectrum are going to have to compromise (at least until our kart count can support 2 classes) and unfortunantly the weight class that has the most committed racers will have a little bit of negotiation leverage. I do know that we will not come to any type of productive solution if the only advise we offer up is a smart a$$ comment.

Our class rules say the light class comes in at 325 and the heavy class comes in at 400. If we split the difference of those two it comes out to 362.5 and we could round that up to 365 or down to 360. My honest opinion is this is a good starting point until the light and heavy classes can support their own kart count. The only other solution would be to add a restrictor plate to the light class karts instead of adding weight and I know that no one whats to hear or deal with that as a temporary solution. Now with that being said I weight around 500 in my kart so I really dont think 5 or 10 pounds will make or break me.

So lets hear some constructive feedback to try and help Jason come up with a solution that will allow him to somewhat keep everyone happy.

And you are right Steven and im sorry for my negative coments . and on the weight issue you are correct all we need is compromise and no one wants to we tried running 375 last weekend and ran good we qualified 3rd out of 35 karts so performance is not an issue for use it pickingup that heavy kart is the issue. and after about 50lbs added to te kart it starts to become a safety issue .

Here's something we could try, how about the 350# racers run a weinnie pipe and the 375# racers run a big pipe?Huh? and we all run together as a clone class?Huh If the 350# racer doesn't want to run the weinnie pipe, then he adds weight up to 375#.
