About the most harm it appears that a wider tread would cause, would be
to take out a few cones at the drivers test, if they still have one of those.
Dennis T posted a video of that a couple of years back and there wasn't
much leeway between the flags. A few inches wider and a few inches
longer and I doubt if you could make the turns. I don't know, but I doubt
they would send you home if you took down half the flags in the parking
lot.

Thanks Al, I thought it was but I figured I need that extra inch.

20" ID is easily achieved and cane hidden by a slight tweak in the rails to make it like a Model A Frame
You would never notice!winking smiley
BUT, picking an inspiration car with external cockpit panels give you at "least" 2" more width inside the cockpit,
for upper body room.
No sense being uncomfortable in your own CK!smileys with beer

Brian:
When you say tweak, do you mean tapered or parallel at the springs thinner than the parallel at the cockpit.

BTW I’m with Denny, it’s nap time.

They did away with that silly drivers test last year, thankfully.
In any case, it sounds like those Ducati crates can be turned into pretty much whatever you need.

To bad, even thought they weren't serious about the test, I thought that
was kind of a neat way to fill in some idle time and see just how well
you knew your ride.

I guess so. I was never a big fan, but I wasn't very good at it either.
It's a rough surface and was the site of some rollovers.
So, they decided to retire it.

We must be talkin'' bout somethin'' different Dave, the 'drivers test' they
held in the parking lot was pretty much a crawl to get thru the flags for
most everyone. A few made it thru pretty quick but even then, I doubt
any of them were going over 15 mph.
I still gotta find the time to look up a Ducati dealer around here, I'm always
up for some scrap steel.

Oh, it started out that way. I think it was pretty civilized when Dennis took those vids.
But as boys will do, as you like to point out, it became a full throttle blast from wicket to wicket with two wheeling being less rare.

Actually, what replaced it is a one direction lap around a few blocks which is a lot of fun.

I thought the driver test out in the back parking lot was FUN, and as Dave said, it was no stroll in the park!
There was some serious driving done out there. But, as all one Kart at a time, timed event, there was a lot of
waiting in line in the heat time.
Then again I am not a fan of timed events!thumbs down
The real fun came when the CKs were racing wheel to wheel, and the more in each heat the better!
Getting excited just thinking about it!
Tieton is on my Calendar and I am awaiting the Registration Form.hot smiley
Good Roads

The last time I drove the driver's test I made sure the boys had to chase a lot of golf balls.



S'all for now!
