    '06 Phenom Setup for BMS Series in PA

    After a college hiatus, getting back into the kart only dirt this time. Long time asphalt racer. I know older equipment but that is what I have. Raced once on dirt with Maxxis tires. Know nothing about Burris tires or chassis setup for the PA tracks. Need chassis numbers, air pressure, and what prep and numbers to get SS-22's to. Can't have a bunch of tires, so what best to have. Also a good shop that would do tires for me.
    '06 Phenom Animal 375lb Class
    L/R Cambers
    L/R Toes
    Rear rim positions for rear track
    Front track
    R/F staggers
    Nose %
    Left %
    Cross %
    Air pressures to start with

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    The 22's will ONLY work for track roll in and very first open practice laps as long as you go early, You will need 55's & 33's for Animal Heavy class, I have an Idea on set up but there are others that will be more familiar with the Phenom so I'll wait to see what for response you get.

    You have a PM as well.

    For a Phenom, you will want to be around this for a baseline:

    46% Nose
    58% Left
    64% Cross

    -2.75 RF
    +0.25 LF

    12 RF/8 LF Castor

    1.5" Front Stagger, 1.125-1.250" Rear Stagger

    1 1/6" Toe out LF

    Tire wise, for BMS, you are going to need at a minimum 2-3 sets of 55's. Depending on how serious you want to get, you would likely want to get a set of right sides every race after that.

    We have been pretty successful with our Burris program over the years at the BMS races, especially on 55's. Let me know if we can help.

    I'd like to ask a question for clarification...i have an 05 phenom myself I race dirt in ct. short trace between 1/8 and 1/10th mile...you have 1-1/16 left toe out...is that correct and why so much when I usually see it recommended at 1/16 to 1/8 toe out...curious as to the benefit of that much...and wouldn't that create to much drag, wanting to pull that much left on the straight away. Thanks for any feed back

    On the tires, Tom Dawson at Transfer Tornado Cuts would be a good choice since he is also in PA. 724-456-3757
