- Clone Class Changes:
- Sr. Box Stock Clone class will follow WKA rules this year, exception being the tire rule which will remain open. Exhaust headers will also be open but will require and RLV stock class silencer.
- Jr. Box Stock Clone class will also follow WKA engine tech rules except for weights and restrictors. Those will be per SRR rules. Jr. Clone class will follow WKA header/muffler rule. Jr. Clone classes will use SRR Bridgestone YDS tire rule.
- The biggest change for 2013 in the WKA clone engine tech is the allowance of Aluminum or steel billet flywheels. This rule also makes current C.I. flywheels illegal. The check on ignition key also changes to a non tech item.
Find this icon at www.worldkarting.com to keep up with any tech changes through out the season. We don't post WKA's tech on our web site but will use the current manual plus any tech updates when doing an inspection on the Clone, KPV or Yamaha classes.
- 2 Cycle Class Pending Tech/Rules Changes:
- We'd like to hear from our 2 cycle participants regarding some possible class changes.
- WKA will change the Yamaha Super Can class to run the new RLV SR-Y exhaust. We intend to do the same at SRR. This is a $249.95 package which includes a spec header, pipe and head pipe.
- The input we'd like from you Yamaha drivers is whether it would be a good idea to combine the Super Can and Pipe classes using the RLV SR-Y set up. This change will speed up the can class as it adds 1.5 HP. It will slow down the pipe class but brings benefits. The set up runs a lower RPM band which saves on time between overhauls and clutch maintenance. The benefit for the can drivers is a cooler cylinder as the exhaust gases are moved away from the cylinder. The engine builders suggest this will make the can motor longer lived.
- We are strongly considering the WKA tire rule of Bridgestone YLC's for our Yamaha classes. Thoughts?
- KPV will see some changes in WKA this year also. They will move the Sr. class to an HPV2 pipe from the current 4 pipe. This may be a mute point as everyone on a KPV disappeared last year. Our instinct would be to follow WKA and institute the #2 pipe. Any thoughts?
- WKA says the KPV with the #2 pipe and the Yamaha with the SR-Y pipe are very similar in performance. Should we put these classes back together again?
Thanks for checking in.
