The new XPS Full Synthetic 2T Kart Racing Oil is now available. The new oil is legal to use effective today, November 8th, 2012. The new synthetic blend provides many performance and maintenance benefits, yet remains the same price as the previous oil.
The Maxspeed Group will no longer stock the XPS Synthetic Blend Oil 2T kart Racing Oil, however it will still be legal to use depending on availability and RMC Series Event Supplemental Regulations.
The main sales points:
Read the GoRacing magazine article about the 2012 Rock Island Grand Prix race featuring several Texas ProKart Challenge Series racers, all racing under the 3G Kart Racing tent!
Jordon Musser won the King of the Streets crown for the 2nd time! 3G Kart Racing team member Jake French joined Musser on the podium in 2nd place and also set a new track record. Cordell Secrest qualified for the final on the front row only to be taken out of the race on the warm up lap.
Kudos to Jesse Woodyard in TAG Junior for leading the field to the checkered flag only to be removed for a wrong tire compound in post tech. Congratulations to Bucky Hewitt earning a 2nd place podium spot in TAG Junior.
Steve McCaffery qualified 5th in Shifter Masters and won a 3rd place podium spot in the final!
The MAXSpeed Group is advising all MAX Challenge competitors of new tire regulations for the 2013 season. Effective January 1st, 2013, Junior MAX, Mini MAX and Micro MAX will all compete on the Mojo D1 tire.
This change in regulation effectively brings the U.S. market in-line with the worldwide MAX Challenge tire rules while addressing concerns over the progression of speed between the different classes. The four senior classes remain unaffected and will continue to race on the same tires they did in 2012.
For dealers that wish to prepare early for 2013, MAXSpeed is now fully stocked and shipping orders of all Mojo compounds from it's new Deerfield Beach, FL location.
