Hall of Fame Rider | November 2017

Hall of Fame Rider | November 2017

Kenny Phillips


Kenny Phillips from Wallkill, New York has been selected as DRR USA’s first ever Hall of Fame Rider! He has been racing ATVs for the past eight years and has placed 1st in 11 races and 2nd in nine races, among many other top ten finishes. 

We asked Kenny a few questions about his racing experience. Here’s what he had to say:

Q: What ATV did you ride?
K: My first quad was a Sunl, which was not made for racing, but I begged to race. Once we raced a few times and I knew I wanted to continue, my parents bought me a new 50cc DRR!

Q: What are a few accomplishments that you are proud of from your racing career?
K: The accomplishment that I am most proud of is winning the 70cc Championship in the New East Extreme Dirt Track National Series with my 70cc DRR. I am also very proud of taking podium on my 70cc DRR in the 90cc class and the supermini class. Another accomplishment is winning the 50cc championship in 2012 with my DRR. We have had a great run together!

Q: What is your fondest memory of riding ATVs in general?
K: When I first started racing, my very first race, I drove straight to the top of the track, went very slowly around, and waved to the crowd each time I drove past the grand stands. I stopped doing that, of course, but everyone laughs when I tell that story.

Q: Do you have any advice for current young riders?
K: Never get frustrated on the track. Stay calm and you can focus more on how you are riding, instead of winning or where you will place. The calmer you are, the better you will ride. You never want to be reckless or cause an accident. Most of all - always have fun!

Congratulations on a great racing career so far, Kenny!



NOMINATE A RIDER!

If you know a rider or family of riders who rode DRR ATVs growing up, we’d love to feature them for an entire month. You can even nominate yourself or one of your own family members! Whoever you’d like to submit, please send their name, email address, and what year(s) they raced to social@drrusa.com, or message us directly on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/drratvs/.

Thank you for helping us draw attention to these amazing riders!

Winter vs. Summer Tires: How to Survive Cleveland Weather

By Grace Moryan


When tourists think of Cleveland, they think of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Lebron James. However, everyone who lives in Cleveland always thinks of the weather. Cleveland weather is infamous for being unpredictable and ever-changing.

One day can be incredibly rainy while the next is clear, blue skies. This fickleness makes navigating the area a struggle. Luckily, it is warmer in the months May through September and colder October through April, giving us Clevelanders a predictable range of temperatures.

With this in mind, it is important to choose the right tires to accommodate for the time of year. Taking care of your car and your tires can help keep you safe, but what is the difference between summer tires and winter tires?

Summer Tires: Beat the heat!

Summer tires are perfect when the weather is warm and you feel like going to the pool. A summer tire will:
   
          Have more grip and agility. This is important because it’s more precise and useful in rainy weather when the road conditions are slippery.

      Be stiff and firm. This allows the tires to have better responses, feedback, and handling.

         Become stickier at higher temperatures. This is important because when the weather becomes hot, the tire becomes plastic-like and can reduce friction between the rubber and the road.

Winter Tires: Blow through snow!
          
With black ice and snow storms, winter tires are essential to surviving the colder months. Winter tires will:

      Have deep treads and grooves. These are designed to give the tire the ability to collect snow and allow the car to navigate the unpredictable snowy terrain.

      Maintain traction. When snow begins to pile up on the ground, it is important for a driver to be able to control their car. Winter tires are durable for weather as low as -35 degrees.

      Wear out at higher temperatures. While these tires are perfect for the snow, it is important to remember they do not hold up well when the temperature raises to a certain point.

It is important to change your tires especially if you live in an area where the weather is always changing. Use summer tires when the weather is nice for more control of the car. Use winter tires to be able to navigate through the snow and ice. Being able to control your car and putting yourself in a position to conquer the Cleveland weather can keep you safe as well as your passengers.

How to check your brake pads

Grace Moryan


The most important feature of any car is the ability to stop with little to no problem at any moment. However, over time, the brake pads on your car will experience wear and tear. It is important to make sure the brakes of your car are functioning, especially considering spirited driving on a track or the street.

There are certain signs of a car that signal you need to change your brake pads.
  •        It takes longer than usual for you to stop 
  •       When pressing the brake, your foot goes down further than normal

Here are some tips from us at DeCuzzi Tires on how you can check your brake pads:
  • Look through the wheel
    • You can look through the wheel of your car without removing it to see the brake pads. If the pad looks very thin, you will need to replace it. Some brake pads have wear indicators, which means that when they are almost gone it is time for new brake pads 
  • The amount of brake dust
    • Brake dust is the little specks that appear on your wheels. When your brake pads are in good condition, there is a lot of brake dust; likewise, when your brake pads are almost used up, there won’t be as much dust on the wheels
  • You will hear a metal sound
    • Before your brake pads wear too thin, your car will make a metal sound. This sound indicates you need to change the pads before they wear too thin.
  • You will feel it
    • Often times people will be able to feel the wear and tear of their brake pads when they drive. Their steering wheel may vibrate or feel off. If you sense any differences from your normal driving conditions, you may want your car to be checked out.
Checking your brake pads once every six months is crucial in maintaining your car. Replacing them can prevent your car from other internal damage and can even save your life from an avoidable accident.

Tire Pressures and Speed

Grace Moryan


When conquering the racetrack, it is important to think about how to adjust your vehicle to be in top condition. A very important part of the race is the pressure of your tires. At first glance, it might look like one size fits all, but the differences in pressure can change the way your car drives on the track. Here are the top tire pressure tips from DeCuzzi Tires:

               Smoothness of the Track

Some tracks are just flat concrete while others have twists, turns and bumps. No matter what kind of track you drive, there are different tire pressures suited for varying terrains. The more pressure a tire has, the higher and longer it will bounce over bumps. Bumpy tracks will require lower tire pressure because it will be easier to maintain control over the vehicle.

               Temperature

Some tracks are outdoors and are subject to change due to Mother Nature, while others are indoors and kept at a consistent temperature. Here are the recommended tire pressures at different temperatures:
  •         Below 60° high pressure. 
  •        60-90° medium pressure. 
  •        Above 90° low pressure.

Number of laps per session

Often times, race tracks have a variety of laps and sessions available to their customers. Depending on the amount of laps in the race there are different recommended tire pressures.
·        5 or less: high tire pressure. Increases in temperature cause increases in tire pressure, so it is important to have this in mind whether it is a short race or long race.
·        6-12 laps: medium tire pressure
·        12+ laps: lower tire pressure, especially when you have around 20 laps.

Be sure to treat your tires right to make sure they last long and help you win the race. After all, your tires are what help your car move, so it is important to highly consider how they affect your maneuverability.

ATVS: Let the Family Ride Together

By Grace Moryan


When the sun is shining and there is not a cloud in the sky, families often find themselves wanting to do something together. Things that may come to mind are going to the movies or the pool; however, after a while, you may be wondering if there is anything you can do with more of a thrill.

Luckily, we know just the thing that you can do outdoors and even bring your kids along: All-terrain Vehicles (ATVs). At DRR, part of our goal as a company is to bring families together and help them spend time together doing something they love.

ATVs, also commonly known as four wheelers, are something the entire family will enjoy. Your kids will love racing each other on them and you will love the fact it gets them away from the television. Here are five reasons your entire family should invest in ATVS.
  1. It gets everyone outside: When it’s a nice day, haven’t you noticed you have the urge to get up and do something? ATVs provide your family the perfect way to gather everyone and go out for a ride through the woods. You’ll be able to sightsee alongside your kids and have memories going through the trails together.
  2. Your kids will think they are best thing ever: When it comes impressing the kids, they will think ATVs are the coolest rides ever this summer. Remember when you first got a bike, scooter, or a skateboard? An ATV will surely trump all those things in levels of awesome. Your kids will believe they are the next best thing to Lightning McQueen.
  3. They are made to conquer any terrain: It doesn’t matter if you want to take them on a trail or on a sidewalk in the park: ATVs are made to do it all. You don’t have to worry about them getting ruined wherever you use them, which makes them relatively low maintenance and easy on the wallet.
  4. They’re Safe and Easy for your kids to Learn: You may hear stories of kids being injured because they fall off of their ATV, but did you know that they are relatively safe when parents and children are well informed? You can do research on what size ATV you should buy for your children and teach your kids to handle them properly. We even have our own sizing guide on the DRRUSA website and we will be glad to help if you need any assistance. They’ll be ready to conquer the racetrack in no time. You can check out our website: http://drrusa.com/
  5.  It’s a good way to mix it up this summer: Most people have been to their local park a million times, but how many have activities can they continuously rotate? Riding on an ATV is a good hobby for your kids to add onto the list of things they love to do.  

When looking for things to do with your kids this summer, consider buying an ATV. It’s an investment your entire family will be sure to love when the weather is nice and your itching to get up and be active.

ATVS: Which ones should I get for my kids?

By Grace Moryan



ATVs (All-terrain Vehicles) are designed to look cool and allow kids to have fun riding through the woods. When choosing an activity for your kids, it is important to find something that will keep them safe and active. Luckily, ATVs are something the entire family can enjoy together, and we know this at DRRUSA. Here are some tips for you and your kids to be safe while dominating the racetrack.

  • Size matters

The size of your ATV heavily matters for your children. If you google ATV safety, thousands of cases come up of children who are injured or die from ATVS. However, what they don’t tell you is most of these kids did not have the right size ATV. Here is DRR’s sizing guide to ATVS:
·        50c to 70cc for children 6 years and older
·        90cc for kids over the age of 12

  • Your children should wear the right equipment

You wouldn’t want your kids to ride a bike without a helmet, and you shouldn’t let them ride an ATV without the appropriate gear either. Kids can be thrown off their ATV if they hit a rock or a  large branch. Your child should be wearing a helmet, gloves, chest protectors, and boots when riding on their ATV. 

  • Don’t let your children ride alone

Your children may be interested in going out on their ATV all by themselves, but it isn’t a good idea for them to go out alone. Teach your children to always ride with a buddy and be sure to supervise them on their ATVS especially if they are under 16 years old.

  • Avoid public roads

It may seem like a fun idea to take the ATVs out on the street, but it isn’t what the vehicle was meant for. Don’t take your ATV where you could potentially be hit by a car or other vehicle. Try to keep it in the park or the woods.

  • Don’t have extra passengers

If the ATV is only made for one person to ride on it, then don’t let your kids have their friends ride with them! Having extra passengers can be dangerous and even change the way the ATV moves around.

  • Make your children take safety courses

Your child is more likely to handle their ATV properly and drive safely if you enroll them in an ATV safety course. You should always make sure children are aware of the dangers when handling their ATV and how they can prevent potential accidents.

With these in mind, it is important to go forth and ask questions to your local dealer when buying an ATV. Make sure you are informed and you will be able to let your kids tackle the race track in no time!

Racecar Brakes: Be a Superstar, Savvy and Safe!

By Grace Moryan



This article was created by Decuzzi tires, a brand of go kart tires often used for racing and to help racers practice in go karts before getting in their racecar.

Your racecar is your pride and joy: it helps you conquer the track, you have personalized it to your taste, and you’ve tweaked it to perfection. And while you are always used to riding smooth and fast, it is easy to forget your racecar undergoes the same wear and tear as a regular car. That is why it is important to change your brake fluid, as you are always stopping hard and fast.

               Boiling Point
               The more you drive your car, the hotter it gets. While your car is getting hot, there’s more than just skid marks occurring when you drive fast: the rotors and pads create heat every
time you use your brakes, and the brake fluid becomes hot. Most brake fluids have two boiling points: wet and dry.

               Wet boiling point: the temperature the brake fluid boils after it absorbs moisture
               Dry boiling point: the temperature the brake fluid boils before it absorbs moisture

Why Moisture is bad for brakes
The boiling point of water is 212 degree Fahrenheit, which isn’t very high when it mixes with your brake fluid. When water gets into your brake system, it lowers the point your brakes boil, which can ultimately deteriorate the braking performance of your racecar over time.

Testing Your Brakes
It is important to test your brake fluid after every race to check their condition. You can purchase a brake fluid tester or brake fluid strips, which simply requires you dipping it into the fluid and gives you a result. You can purchase a brake fluid tester at your local auto parts store.

How often should I change my brake fluid?
To be safe, it is important to change your brake fluid once a year. While it may be costly, this will ensure your brakes are in top condition when you go on the track. After all, your life heavily depends on your ability to stop, so the extra investment is worth it to keep you and your fellow racers safe.

Be safe and don’t overlook your brakes: after all, you love the track, so it is important to keep your car in top condition!
