"Will putting Air, Helium, or Nitrogen in a tire change speed or traction racing a Go Kart around a circle dirt track? I chose this because I race Go Karts and Micro Sprint Cars. Finding different ways within the rules to get more speed and traction for a race is the goal. "

  1. Be careful in that helium, being a smaller molecule, will escape faster than air (this happens in balloons).
