Long day at the track

Yaw Moment Racing's first race of the season is tomorrow, so I hit the track for a few practice sessions today. Each session, small improvements to the kart's setup and reliability were made so tomorrow looks promising. We increased radiator angle for improved cooling, tested different tire pressures, put on fresh brake pads, and made a few chassis tweaks. It was 80 degrees and sunny in Ohio which gave the track much more grip than in my previous colder test sessions so setup had to be adjusted accordingly. The kart understeered quite a bit especially in high speed corners, but this has been much improved. Humidity was high so carb tuning may be necessary in tomorrow's pre-race practice.

Here is quick video from today's sessions.
