Episode 36. Learning from your mistakes
Hello and welcome back to Karting Dads. We give a run down on the Maxxis race that we just ran here at Jacksonville 103rd raceway. We made some major mistakes that we will make sure they won't happen again. We have learned but it came at a bad price. We also went back to the track the following weekend and worked our race craft and running as hard as possible and knowing the limits were we can take our karts. We have set some goals for ourselves and if you have any goals that you try to accomplish please let us know. Thanks again for listening and please continue to share with your friends.

Episode 17: Challenging your comfort zone
Welcome back to another episode of Karting Dads! Are you stuck in a comfort zone? By this, we are talking about being unable to lower your lap time no matter what you try. The track is the same speed, your vision isn't getting any faster, and you can't push yourself to find that extra 0.5s? If so, then tune into this episode. We took advice from Ross Bentley's Speed Secrets Podcast on "how to slow down a track". We are not talking about overall lap times, just how to slow down a turn by driving something faster! We would love your feed back on any experience you have with this!

Episode 15: SIM racing and great weekend with some friends
What's up everyone! We had a blast this weekend with some friends. We also had a "paradigm shift" in karting that really made us very happy. We talk about SIM racing and what might be happening in the karting community and a great time we had learning at the track. We met up with some great friends that tried out our karts and got a lot of good info. Emmanuel was a beast and went 70 laps non-stop. Jorge Ruiz went 40+ as well. Things were great. We are looking forward to having another KartingDads weekend when we can get a lot of people to come hang out, cook food, drive the track and socialize. Thank you again to everyone who follows the show! We could not thank you enough!

Hello everyone and thanks for listening to our show! In this episode, Emmanuel went to PBIR to run his E30 and perform his NASA FL duties. There was a comp school going for drivers looking to go wheel to wheel racing. While all this was happening, he also took his little girl with him and she roamed the pits and the tower. I, on the other hand, had my son's birthday party. Here, he received his first go kart!! He was excited for sure.
