    It was a "Birel," which is a well-known Italian brand.

    Yes, pretty much any driver at Indy or Formula 1 started in karts and chances are very good that they still drive shifter karts in the off season to stay in shape.

    Re: Hardcore racers here?

    that sounds way cool...got any links or photos you can share...

    There is a local road course track near me (Braver Run Raceway) in PA that is fairly new that might have some of this racing going on. I would like to learn more, before I show up there and ask a lot of dumb questions to get up to speed...

    Otherwise, anyone have any drag race tips they can share for a 2008 STS-V that I am working on im my shop and plan to take to the track later this week to do some testing. Stock it went 13.45-13.50 @ 100-101. Just instaled the D3 1.5 kit and the exhaust deal. Wondered how much it would help and what else I can do to maximize any ET reductions.

    Thanks,
    Dale

    My local club's website is a good start. Click on the "getting started in karting" link in the Navigation box. As for Ohio?PA, there is a LOT of karting going on in that region. I'd just google for kart tracks or clubs in your locale.

    I'm interested in tips too - what tire pressures work, launch techniques...etc. I think some slicks or at least drag radials would really help these ars hook up better.
