after nearly five years on the market, Dynamics of Speed
remains accurate, relevant, and one of the most complete karting books
on intermediate and advanced setup technology in oval kart racing.
The book opens with the most basic goals in oval kart racing required to
make speed. From there it progresses to the physics of what the
kart is actually undergoing on the track and finishes with some detailed
the unique aspects of Dynamics of Speed is that not only are theories
discussed, but actual, hard facts are presented to describe what's going
on with things like weight transfer, castor, steer angle, etc.
This information will help you get a quantitative feel for what is
really going on with your kart as it maneuvers around the track.
It doesn't matter what chassis you're riding, what type of
surface, what tires, etc., if you're racing a kart on an oval the dynamics
of making speed are very much the same and this book will help you
understand what those dynamics are and how you can use them to go faster.
The manual is 103 pages long
and goes into extensive detail into getting a kart to go fast whether it
be on soft, slick dirt, hard dirt, pavement or coke syrup. Take a

of contents to see a more
complete look of the topics covered.
