Tech: General

Went go-karting this week, was great!

We had planned to go on the slower carts but when we arrived they were running late and instead of waiting we joined with 2 other people on the high speed karts, we warned them that we would both die, but they said 'no no it will be fine'

well fortunately the high speed carts were capped from the top 85mph to probably around 65mph, which is probably why I\'m still here today.

My girlfriend went off on the first lap straight into a wall of tyres *shakes head* so much for training her up on Forza!

i didn't crash I did however get warned for going too fast round the hairpin (even though I was doing it just fine till he warned me thus distracting me causing me to spin)

I then found out why I was going too fast as I had cooked my breaks after 13 laps so I had to roll in and get a replacement kart, then I cooked them again pretty much after another 13 laps when time ran out.

Had a good lil battle with one of the other drivers, over taking then being overtaken, then getting too carried away and spinning off, I decided to calm it down to save my breaks and for fear I would be called off the track for being too awesome/dangerous



Next time I go I plan on learning how to drift/trail break/lock breaks/etc which could be interesting :-S

Ill make sure everyone is warned beforehand

Afterwards I had pretty much no use of my arms, they were dead, lack of power steering and any kind of forearm muscle meant both of us were rather broken afterward, then my bum really started hurting possibly deep bruising from all the vibrations

:-D
