    Right Side Tight

    Sometimes my kart will feel pretty good on the track and can get through the turns well, but it seems like it stays on the right sides a little too long. Like its not sliding or pushing. It's just like it's digging in on that side a little too long and you can feel your body push up against the seat. Anytime I have that condition though it seems to increase my drops so I would like to know how to address it at the track.

    It's not out in left field out anything, just trying to pick up a tenth or 2 because I can tell there is speed left on the table.

    A fast kart will slam you into the seat, But sounds like your just off on Tires, or prep issue.
    What Class & weight, what tires , what chassis , set-up numbers including cambers, what size track , rear stagger ? RR & LR spacing from inside of wheels to cassette hangers ?

    More air pressure, less inside prep, harder tires, more left side%, lower center of gravity.

    maybe just a case of over prepping for the track conditions? I’m guilty of that one a lot. Try another 1/2 pound in the rights see if that helps loosen it up

    What exactly does changing the split by another half alot full pound do. I normally run around 4L/5R. Is upping the rights like stiffening the spring on the right side?

    Yes, it does stiffen the sidewalls and let the kart roll freer. Judging by your posted a/p, more air should make a very noticable difference.
