johnnyrod Posted March 10, 2015 Report Share Posted March 10, 2015 I went go-karting last autumn, an indoor place in Chester. I'm chuffed to say I set the fastest lap and but for a most unsporting manoeuvre I might have even won it. Anyway at one particularly grippy point in the track, it goes in a 135 degree left-hander, straight into a 45 degree right hander. I found I could pretty much go flat out through there if I could hang on hard enough. I also found that in the switch from left to right, it was very snappy indeed. I think this is because while the kart was turning left, it really wanted to go straight on, so when I turned it right instead, I was going the way it wanted to, at least until it was past the middle point and then turning right. Was this really the case? And if so, can (do?) we use this in chicanes on bikes? I'm quite a slow steerer by any standards so I don't think I'm feeling it happen.
