Spark Karts Prize Package Testimonials

Edward Kelly, Junior Yamaha Class.

Before the service was done on the kart, the handling of the kart wasn't very good at all, especially if you compare it to what it is now. The back of the kart would slide around the corners making it difficult to follow the racing line. The brakes weren't very responsive, partly because the kart doesn't have hydraulic brakes. The front wheels were also very toed-out and the stub axles were bent. One of the things that Stu did on the kart was balancing the chassis. We put the kart on the scales, which showed that the chassis was quite bent. We gave the chassis a twist so it was balanced correctly. Stu also made some other changes like the brakes, my positioning in the kart, camber and caster and more. Now the kart is a lot easier to drive. I am able to brake later, there is more grip in the front of the kart when driving into the corner and in the rear of the kart when driving out of the corner. All of that has resulted in taking nearly a second off my lap times.Thank you very much Stu for all the time and effort you put into the kart and making it much better and also for providing this great prize to be won.

We rushed in just before CIK Trophy of NZ and Stu went over the kart on the scales, discovering that it was slightly out of true. A quick tweak on the chassis and a full dynamic wheel alignment sorted it. Stu also discovered the accelerator cable was frayed and needed replacing and then shared some of his knowledge and advice with me to help me prepare for CIK. Back at the track, I noticed the kart was more stable in it's handling and more responsive in the steering, giving me more confidence chasing the front runners.
Thanks for good work Stu!
