Driving at higher speeds, puts more emphasis in the braking zones. Shifter karting is the highest performance category in our sport, so this is where the biggest gains can be made when racing this class.
Travelling from your highest speed on a straight to the lowest speed at the apex of a corner requires skill, control & confidence. If you don’t believe in yourself or your package, you’re likely to brake earlier as it’ll take you longer to slow down and this is time lost to your opposition. Having too much front or rear brake bias could mean you lack control on approaching a corner, again this is an area where time can be lost on the racetrack.
