LMK Speed Secret – Relax your arms. A common issue many beginners have with karting is that they come off the track after just one session with sore arms. If this is the case with you, chances are your adrenaline is pumping and you’ve got a death-grip on the wheel. Ease up and grip just tight enough to move the wheel and brace yourself through harder turns. Also, let the seat do the majority of the work to hold you in place.
Loosening up your grip will help in a number of ways, the most obvious being endurance. But just as important, you’ll be able to get better feel from the steering wheel. Use this feedback to fine-tune your driving and improve lap times.
