If their karts are back to normal I might be interested. Went 2 days ago and everytime I braked hard the rear tires would lose traction and I'd end up sideways going in the corner - not exactly fun if your goal is to get good lap times.

considering that other people in the race had the same problems.. and that I'm not exactly a noob at tbc, definitely not me.

Yeah I was there a week ago as well and it was fine. Not sure what happened during my most recent visit but I'll just assume it's an off day for the karts.

I'd go, just need somebody to leave their number or where and what time they're meeting to head over there after the meet.

So what's the secret to these 28.xx times? I usually get 30.xx and rarely into the 29's, but 28 and under seems ridiculous.

That is based on your weight and driving line. I have a regular who is about 243lbs that just broke into the 29's

These are rental karts, and you have to remember no two karts are the same. Some might have new tires, or a new engine or steering linkage etc etc.
All you can really do is adjust your skill to the kart

On a side note though, The best way to break your own personal records are to come during the fall & spring. The engines love the cold air and the tires keep their heat
