Maintenance and new parts, what have you done?

Post by David Barrish » Fri Mar 27, 2020 5:39 pm

I anticipation of "a new day", tomorrow Samuel gets a new set of tires for his Kart. Now to be "fair", they are over a year old and no one has said anything about the cracks in the side walls. I also get to change the tires on the "Historic" 2 car, but they are less used up RE-71's.

What, no one wants to confirm that the best weekend bad habit you can share in "public" is in need? I would like to thank Robert for his help in changing the tires on Samuel's kart. I can confirm he did the tires and I cleaned the kart. I can also confirm the thumbs up driving the trailer on the highway were well worth it.

Steve, As it takes manual labor and the tires are "that" small I did not lay hands on the changer. Those that know me understand. And yes, I was wearing a white button down shirt.

The kit is an awesome combination, the rear tires are a snap and the fronts are not.

Who would guess that the tires are "directional" and that small.

I/ve never changed a kart tire, but I'd rather do than than to glue up 1/10th scale touring car slicks. We had a guy glue his hands and one wheel together.

Warmer weather helps with kart tires.
