I dont know if it is an error but in the KF3 in the cfg file there is

driver
{
   id = junior
}

but in the INI file there is
driver_type=senior

Im trying to make a new junior class but if I write "junior" both in the cfg and ini files, there is no choose for helmet

Kf3 is a junior class on an adult chassis 12-15
I would guess you leave it alone

driver_type refers to the weight of the driver, i too have noticed this issue when making the OK Jr kart and it seems the only way to remedy it is to leave it as it is in the original kf3 files as it doesnt really have a major affect any way

the weight is in the cfg such as junior.cfg
id = junior
mass = 65
inertiabox = 0.37, 0.65, 0.74

so the game reads the right weight in the your_kart.cfg
driver
{
   id = junior
}

driver type should be the 3D of driver but maybe junior and senior are the same, in fact there are only driver.cfg and driver_mini.cfg

I know it has an affect on the weight of the driver my point was more that it has little affect overall to the feel of the kart and while its arguable the junior model should be smaller its really not that big of a deal so i see no reason to change it

Yes, this I was pointing out

The ID in the CFG file sets the driver weight.
The "driver_type" setting in the INI file is only about the graphics, that is the same between junior and senior.

thanks

is the ballast now automatically calculated knowing weight of kart, engine, driver and minimummass?
what is density?
--------------------
type = kart

ID = b_2015_f100

minimummass = 152

chassis
{
   id = b_2015_kf-a

   ballast
   {
      density = 11.34
      height = 0.05
      ratio = 2
      pos = 0, 0, 0
   }
