"Hey guys (Trent & Wolfram ) play nice !! Now I don't have a cadet so you can tell me to but out..... However - when wets were introduced it was never about safety ! The slick tyres used to say "dry weather use only" and it was…"

"Well aren't we lucky that's just your one sided opinion Wolfram. Although what's is based on? How many kids injured themselves driving on slicks? Where is your logic, aren't kids driving faster on wets, do you think wets mean…"

"And you were never as good or as fast as the kids that are out there now. Stop kidding yourself. People complain about safety and you get a ridiculous response like this."

Trent replied to James's discussion New Cadet 9 rules for 2018
"getting rid of wets would have been good. I saw about 10 cadet 9's that stuffed a set of wets on the weekend at Swan Hill because the track dried out. I didn't have wets when I was a kid karting and we survived. It would have been good to…"

"Get real. But there is bound to be one available from someone in the inner circle. Same with rear sprockets. Heard at my last ever KA sanctioned meeting that C9 requires an 83T sprocket as standard equipment at their home club. Tight track with long…"

"Have just discovered that there is no compliant axle available to purchase for the DPE (Arrow/Deadly/Sera) cadet karts. The closest they make is a 960 x 30 x 23. i.e. it has a 3.5mm wall when it needs to be 4mm. The alternative is get a 1000 x 30 x…"

"Easy fix at the club level - don't use a format for the Cadet 9s that involves Qualifying."

Morgan Jones replied to James's discussion New Cadet 9 rules for 2018
"Some tracks wear the tyres a lot more or less.  Also the speed of your driver and the level of competition and if qualifying is being used are big factors."

"I think KA need to seriously rethink their decision on data loggers. - the data logger is a great tool to teach the kids about braking and acceleration points - even basic set up of the engine at various tracks requires use of a data logger - how…"

Andrew Walker replied to James's discussion New Cadet 9 rules for 2018
"With all of those things considered to me the most disturbing are the new practice rules. When you read appendix 1, Private Practice Rules, the last section Practice Sessions states : It is forbidden to cross the Track, sit on tyre walls or be…"

"Not true, you can also get a 12T (its on Ian Williams Tuning price list for Mini ROK) but I suspect a 9T is not made so unlikely we will get a result there. "
