Super Kart handling tips
You should be nice and tight in the seat while being able to reach the pedals and steering wheel comfortably.
One foot at a time
Go-karts at Ace are operated with both feet. So make sure you don’t try to accelerate and brake at the same time. That’s a very bad idea. Use one foot at a time.
Avoid shifting your weight forward as this negatively affects the kart’s handling.
STAY STILL WHEN DRIVING
Karts are designed to lift the inside rear wheel to turn, make sure you stay still when driving to keep the kart from spinning out.
Driving in the rain
The key to wet weather driving is to keep it smooth, break gently and use the 'karting line'. The outside line offers more grip in the wet.
The controls work better when you're not trying to fight them. Keep it smooth and slide less for good lap times.
Brake in to turn 1 and exit the corner in the middle of the track to set up turn 2.
Keep the kart to the left on the apex and keep the throttle smooth on exit.
This turn has a constant radius, so keep your line nice and smooth, sticking to the right-hand side of the track.
Very hard left-hander – go in hard and accelerate flat-out to stop the rear end from sliding. Stick to the right-hand side and keep your line as smooth as possible as this is a constant-radius turn.
Keep the kart as straight as you can then turn hard to the right.
Stick to the right to set yourself up a double-apex left-hander. Brake smoothly and exit in the middle of the track.
Constant radius right hander. Use all of the exit to the white line.
