Re: Give me your tips for pit equipment

I agree with Blitz,make sure your bikes are in working order.To me theres nothing more frustrating than having to work on your bike at the track.When you could be sitting and relaxing until your next session to get out on the track. If your bike is running good don't change anything before a race/track event.I learned the hard way last year.LOL

Re: Give me your tips for pit equipment

Yah, but we're also talking about pit equipment here, jxc. What stuff would you bring to the track to be ready for racing?

Re: Give me your tips for pit equipment

My fam used to be huge tail-gaters, so they had some weights made for the easy-up. They're made of inch thick steal cut into a circle of about a foot & a half diameter. The have a notch cut into them so they fit right around the legs of an easy -up. Some black paint helped to give em a professional look. They've gotta be at least 30 lbs each.

Thanks for the info guys. I hope to attend my first race here shortly in SC or GA. Waiting on parts now; its like christmas eve.

Re: Give me your tips for pit equipment

Heres a good one that I have done. I have a lot of warn out go kart slicks and I just put a piece of plywood under and cut out a foot and half pole and stick it in the middle of the tire and pour concrete mix in it. makes really great awning weights you can drill a hole in the pipe and the awning and put a pin through. it would be cool if you used old pocket bike slicks

Re: Give me your tips for pit equipment

Jrock right now there doesn't seem to be any pocketbikes racing at all around here. A friend and I use to go all they way down to Dublin Ga to race. Mostly pocketbikes and mini gp bikes. The the organization fell apart at the last race that ended it all. When they were giving out pruzes to the winners. The guy who ran the races announced that the other racers were scared to race against me and my teammate on our super midbikes.(superpocket bikes as people call them) Said they were to fast and the couldn't keep up. 2010 was the last year for that,so now they only race xr100s.
At the Elgin track in Sc, they want people to race pocketbikes. Noboby brings them,they only bring their shifter bikes motards mostly. You can race your x22 if you get track prep. But you will have to do a lot of work to it more than the other x series bikes.

ok thanks for the info look take my

Number down so u can text or call me so we can meet up or get something started and it doesn't matter if you win or lose its all about how hard u try and how much fun ur having and good sportsmanship. Like if ur in last place and if the leader is getting ready to pass u don't try to beat him let him pass u by I've been to races and some people there had that problem and it was a bug fight so if we start something ill go all the way to the end and my family would also invested in something like this so we can go pro
