It happens Rhys, usually gets back on topic reasonably quickly. I've just cut down on the between meals nibbles, and replaced with fruit, joined a walking group, and with some dry weather there's a fair bit of physical work to do. I'm not going mad at losing weight, could so with losing a stone or possibly a bit more.

Meaning why bother about off-topic writing on this topic, at all?
This topic would be more comfortable in the off-topic PUB subforum, than in CYCLEKART-TECH subforum.
Anyway, most of the expert topics are often buried under a lot of off-topic writing. Speed-demon is not the only one.

In reply to # 29871 by CmdBentaxle Rhys, I'm so glad to hear you're back at it. Wes's amazing Talbot must have been inspiring.
O.K. Back to the Fat talk I suppose.
Not that weight talk is dis interesting, but just a reminder Dave ........you never gave me your opinion on
my "added event" idea for Tieton or our Canadian Grand Prix if it ever happens?
And how about those Argentinians??????

I like the gravity Idea, I think. But with the brakes most guys have? Eeeh!

I have a uphill run out at the location I had planned to use.
Worked well for our "Gravity Racers we built a few years back.
Brian
And how about a European style Hill Climb?
Or would that be too much strain on our TAV Belts???

Have you ever heard of the Knox Mountain Hill Climb?
We also have a great hill 20 minutes south if us in Summerland.
I have been driving the Yakima Valley on Poker Runs for 38 years, and just know there is a windy canyon road we could drive up Early on Sunday morning????
Even the road from Naches to Tieton taking the right turn on Rosenkranz rd. that brings right back into Tieton thru the orchard country.

I really like the hillclimb idea. Not so steep that it would be a crawl, but it should be a bit of a test for the karts.
If indeed King of the Hill happens at Tieton this year, I really look forward to seeing what they do with it.
Of course last year, we never got to it...

And those Argentine's really know how to enjoy their cyclekarts!

How would you like a crack at that Pomeroy Memorial Motocross layout down the road?

Thanks for that Denny
Brings back some fond old memories.
We used to campout at turn 8 I think it was (never paid too much attention in those days cause it was mostly about the Beer!) where all the Mini Coopers would come around almost vertical on two wheels, and the heavier cars would crash.
Hadn't been for over 35 years (due to a conflicting event I was part of) until 2017, when Don took his CK and I took my Chassis to promote CycleKarting.

Hill Climb, at Tieton was supposed to be an event that I ran. You know why it didn't happen. It would have been timed with as many runs as you wanted as long as there wasn't queue jumping. I detest knock out events.
It is on the plans for Tieton this year with a return road.

Agree about knockout events. People put too much into being there for the weekend, to just be sat down after
one go. Even if you just let everyone take 3 runs and match everyone's best, it would be better.

Agreed, you attend to race, not watch others race, taking everyone's best time over 3 (or more) runs seems sensible to me.

I understand that is how drag racing works, knock out, hill climbs and sprints which I have taken part in in a few countries use timing, and best of however many you can fit in is normal. It is more complex to run than a knock out of course.only because you need communication from the start to the finish, but I thought I had a method but never got to try it.
You don't want to know what each lap at Tieton 2017 cost me!

Yes, and it can happen that the two fastest competitors get paired up in the first round, and one gets knocked out while slower participants keep advancing our poor competition.
You end up seeing the best race first instead of in the finals!
