    Kart 100 cc technical regulation; 457pp/22hp - this means no Oil Change is allowed, right?

    Couple of things, are we running kart space for these races? Also, rebuilding the engine is the only way to get your kart up to 463, pre mix baby!!

    Do we race on both circuits for the trial? I don't see any sort of race order specified in any of the documents.

    Okay... I'm a little confused as to which track we're runnin'. I'm in the North American time slot. Which track are we using ? Also if possible, I would like to request a late heat time. I usually get home from work around 6-6:30 central standard time. Thanks guys. Sounds like it will be a blast to run.

    You need to drive it until the horsepower goes down, or buy a new kart.

    About 150 miles. So that would be approxately 241 kilometers. :)

    EDIT: Had a good practice session with @Makozi. I ran a 56.061 at Stowe and a 27.018 at Gt Arena.
