We had a sad day at cudde.
a rear dual kart lost it's master cylinder and went over the wall.
We had missed that it only had one set of brakes.
not a good idea with any kart with massive power and a 725' long straight.

i really was relieved to see the driver come out of the woods unhurt but that particular oversight won't happen again.
At cudde at least we will be requiring ANY DUAL to have a pair of brakes with some minor exceptions in dual historic A class.

Dave:
Are you going to require a dual that runs a drum brake to have 2 drum brakes? I run duals with a drum brake and it stops great. It is not possible to run dual mechanical drum brakes.

The name of this game is to get all the facts on how the brakes failed on the kart.
