You mentioned in a previous question you look at the drivers "Vibes" while driving. I'm assuming you mean posture, and comfort in the car? What conclusions do you typically draw from this observation?

It's difficult to quantify - that's why I had to resort to a vague term like vibe. I think it would be a combination of how relaxed a driver looks, how determined, how accurate... and I gues you pick tose up from body language.

Hi Terence, i have recently purchased an E-box for my Mychron 4 after reading an article of yours regarding data collection. Which speed sensor would you recommend we purchase with it, i.e. front or rear, and whats the difference. Cheers James

Hi James,

I find the rear speed sensor is perfectly adequate, but the front wheel speed sensor can be better because it eliminates the effects of locking the rear brake.

Hi Terence, what is the rule for increasing grip generally on both ends of the kart? do i increase or decrease the width between the tires?

The genearl rule would be to increase the width at the front, and decrease it at the rear. Its never so simple as that so go out and try lots of settings.

Hi Terence, I started karting a year ago and keep hurting my ribs. How can I avoid rib damage? I was now advised to drive without protectors, claiming that they push the driver out of the seat and reducing the feel for the kart causing part of the trouble

Not to wear a rib protector to me is pretty crazy!

There is a new one designed so that you can maintain your feel for the kart by Iztech. Write to
