Darn weather

It got COLD last week and I got very little done on Kieran's race kart during the week (Hey, I was in Baltimore for 2.5 days).  But it turned out that the Saturday practice forecast was for about 45 degrees anyway, so I used that day to put most of the kart together with the new motor, clutch, chain, sprockets, etc.  I was able to modify the steering stays a little to make the fuel tank fit better, but the tank itself was missing all of the fittings, so I couldn't get it done regardless.  I ordered the fittings today and will have it all ready this weekend.  My folks are coming to town and it's Killeen's birthday party on Sunday, so no driving this weekend...  The plan was for Kieran to attend the classroom session and learn about kart setup and tuning at this Saturday's Kart University at NJMP, but he's too young to learn much about it - and the weather is forecast to be crappy and cold again - so we're going to skip it.

I still need to mount some new tires for this kart and will try finish that tonight.
