ATTENTION all KA100 Racers, we've been hearing feedback that the class weights are too heavy. Please let us know in the comments if you guys prefer the weights where they are or if we can lighten some of the classes 5-10 lbs.
LAKC Ok, so it looks like we will look at moving the weights down to the following, unless we get any complaints:
LAKC Current weights are set at:
Jr - 320
Sr - 360
Master - 380
Super Master - ??
David Gallaher 350 for senior 👍🏼
Lemon Grove Yes please lower weights.
Zeke Benjamin Opinion only:
I think you should leave the weight where they are! You have adults who are right there with weight and do not have the funds to compete with little to few drivers as it is. You have kids/parents who are choosing to move up that are slammed in height and down on weight?? Maybe add weight and stay in cadet! You drop weight in jr class by 10 lbs. then Some will have a ka100 for sale or run a different club. The issue is the age limitations have been lowered, so now you have younger, smaller kids driving full size karts with less muscle and mental development.
Not to mention some will choose or be forced to race Tri-C or another series. If your looking to promote another series or club, then this is a sure bet in doing so!
I’m not trying to be disrespectful, I’m stating the facts that we have adult drivers struggling financially to race this club let alone any club and young kids driving 60 plus mph that can choose to turn there kart into a weapon, there already has been a header change, a tire compound change, now a possible decrease in weight??
Why not just strap a KA on a cadet!
BEGINNING TO BE LIKE NASCAR. Big Decline in every aspect.
In conclusion: the club implemented tire change with restrictor to slow the karts down a little and to better develop driver skills. Dropping weight kind of defeats that purpose.
Dropping weight in SR, Masters etc is going to chase club members away!
Yes we have the option to move to SR, but why when we are still developing a young driver? I don’t believe in letting a 14 year old date a 21 year old either.
Win for some, loss for others.
At this point we will just stick with X30 and drop toddler I mean ka if this change goes into affect.
Again, just an opinion.
Scott Cebulski Don't screw up the class ...Keep all of the weights the same.
Beau Tucker Masters could easily go 10 lighter
Frank Baldozier You could take 20 pounds off of each class we were adding 30 to 40 pounds all year long
Mark Traylor First question, anyone racing in junior over the 320 right now? Current IKF rukebook is 330.
Darrin Stuckwisch I know we used to run Yamaha light at 315
Medium at 330 and heavy at 350 in Indiana
Jetson Lieser Lighten weight for senior to 350
Larry Hayashigawa 370!! That’s nice.
Make SM same weight as M. Nothing is worse than having slower M in front because of weight advantage.
Didier Ciambra Jr - 310 please.
I will have 60lbs of lead at 320

Ushering in 2019 with a first look at the new and improved CalSpeed Karting
Great work, CalSpeed! I can't wait to try it out!!
Looks fantastic guys! All of your hard work has paid off.
Knocked it out the park this time.
This is by far the best track I’ve ever seen laid out. The design of the corners being sharp. Something that I hope gets picked up by the super nationals track designers. They are constantly using radiuses for turns. These turns are sharp at the apex providing massive passing. Super good job guys.
Turn 1 Name: Kimbrell, because Dennis will always be #1.
Mike Smith, can you show us the new oval configuration?
but we love crashing...makes for way better entertainment
Why didn’t you pave the bypass? Would be a cool addition for comp karts too
The Blimp showed up for this live feed
Until the visor is down. "What blue white line???"
KC Cook loves getting pushed off here at Scandi.
unless you want to pass, then use the all the curb lol!
Awesome job! Can't wait to get on track.
right hand mayhem....awesome!
turn the camera around up hill please
It looks so good, guys!!
Tell me about the back straight! THE PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW!!!
now we have two T-bone opportunities in front of the crowd to see...hehe
...and the circle track, like just a big circle with no straights!
Just getting everything set to bring back Grands? 😉
Sprint Series should be interesting to watch...
The way you modified T1 (clockwise) reminds me a lot of Eau Rouge in 1994, so my suggestion for a corner name is “Slow Rouge” 😂 seriously tho.
Looking good Mike Smith. Hope to come Down this years and run at least one race with your good group of drivers and see where I shake out?
You forgot to introduce the Figure 8 course for 2019. The AZ racers coming your way Jan 19th are going to be wowed.with these improvements. The Best Never Rest.
Man this is going to be very exciting! Going to miss Kornakurva. One of those corners should be called DK corner for sure as a tribute
