      Improved on my previous lap time at Da Corsa karting (held on 10th May 2013@Ezone), with 33:72 from 34:31.

      The kids mostly dominated the Championship, I guess mainly due to their weight advantage.

      How much difference do the gear heads think the weight would make? Say, a kid weighing around 50kg was doing his best lap at 30:93 vs me (weighing 72 kg doing 33:72). Is there a scope improvement there with me. Or should I just start shedding my weight, if at all, I ever think of participating in such event.

      I'm 88kgs and I did a 30.86s. So yes, you can improve even with your current weight.

      Weight does make a lot of difference. Specially on puny powered go karts. If I could go back to being 55kgs, I could probably shave off 0.5-1s off my old timing.

      30.86s is killer man! Were you there at the Championship, if you were I am sure you were in the top 3, were you?

      Cuz I left after the first qualification, was pretty disappointed as I missed it by 0.01 seconds.

      No, I don't take part in events

      Just drive fast as a hobby.

      Plus I'm not too sure if the track has changed since the last time I set a time there.

      The track has changed, since I visited Ezone in Feb 2011. Now the long straight(at the grid) has been shortened and the central curves have been altered. Here's some pic which might give you an idea.

      I found a video in my old memory card. This one's when I visited Ezone for the first time in 2011. I am not sure if they had the timing equipments on their Karts then. I timed each lap using the stop watch in my phone, the best lap I did was 30:67s, which is 3 seconds faster, compared the fastest I did on the recent circuit at Ezone itself (33:72s).

      Here's the video and the snapshot of the lapped times from that video.

      Talking Weight does make a difference

      [QUOTE=SatishChour;367995]I found a video in my old memory card. This one's when I visited Ezone for the first time in 2011. I am not sure if they had the timing equipments on their Karts then.

      I was there at the dacorsa karting championship this time. Awesome event ,...My friend who is 78kg has done 1.30.9 and my lap time was 1.31.01 ...my weight being 68 kgs. so getting into 1.30 s is possible with that much weight . but compared to the kids like ali who weighs 45kgs ,its a unfair advantage . but u cant complain ...just try to compensate it with ure racing skills when the race starts. cheers !! [ rememeber valentino rossi - casey stoner fight in 2009 laguna seca . rossi who was 1.5 sec slower than stoner ..still won the race .....so cheers again !!!

      Hhhmmm. Was at Torq03 today. Absolutely hate the new layout, track is nowhere near as challenging as the last one.

      Drove the EVO, best lap time was 1:30:96. Couldn't get a clean lap in, every lap got stuck in traffic. Just did 6 laps today.

      With 20 more laps in to get used to the new layout and the EVO karts should easily get into the late 1:29s with no traffic.

      Lap record is 1:29:09 on the Evos.

      Need to shed a lot of weight. Right now I weigh 96kgs! That last 0.7s is where the weight matters.

      Clocked 30.4 in that 7hp kart at e-zone a few weeks ago. The same day some ultra thin buggers we doing late 28s. Looked like skeletons and were the boys who maintain the karts. I was the fastest in my group of friends. Its mostly the weight that matters.
