Karting Technical Tips

Tech Tuesday: Wet Chassis Set-Up

Some drivers love racing in the wet, others hate it. But it is also true that liking or disliking the wet depends a lot on what performance one has in these track conditions. Kart set-up is extremely important in wet weather and driving itself changes completely. Wet conditions set-up The main critical aspect of wet conditions is the extremely low ... Read More »

Tech Tuesday: Seat Basics

The seat and its supports are often underestimated by chassis tuners and drivers, but the seat is a fundamental part of the chassis and determines a lot of the handling characteristics of your kart. Various seats and supports The structure of the seat and its connections to the chassis generate a system which will change the chassis stiffness. The material ... Read More »

Tech Tuesday: Top 5 Setup Tools

As you probably know, set up is a crucial part to the whole driver/kart package. If it’s out then you can expect to be off the pace. This is why you want the whole job of setting up your kart to be quicker, easier and more convenient. Here are five tools which do just that. Iztech Chassis Alignment Brackets These ... Read More »

Tech Tuesday: Winter and a balance of Brakes

Brake products can be very expensive, especially if you’re buying genuine branded products. Motorsport can be expensive and budgeting can be right in winter season. It might be worthwhile for you to investigate and switch things up then, improving the brake inefficiencies to try and find ‘the pace’ Good braking techniques can help you win races, you don’t have to have ...

Tech Tuesday: Rear axle choice

The Rear axle is one of the main elements to influence chassis setup. The stiffness of the axle determines behaviour of rear part of the chassis, making the kart oversteer or understeer, and changes strongly the balances of forces acting on the chassis. As we know in fact kart behaviour along a curve is based on the possibility for the ... Read More »

Tech Tuesday: Choosing the right Karting seat

The seat and its supports are often underestimated by chassis tuners and drivers, but on the contrary such elements are a fundamental part of the chassis and determine a lot of the stiffness characteristics of karts. Various seats and supports The structure of the seat and its connections to the chassis generate a system which varies sensibly the chassis stiffness. ... Read More »

Tech Tuesday: Welding Part

Karts are made of steel tubes with different compositions of Carbon, Nickel, Chrome and Vanadium. Such tubes have particular characteristics that determine the functioning of the chassis. Elasticity of the material, diameter of the tubes and thickness of tube walls determine the capacity of the chassis to bend, absorb bumps in the track and generate vertical forces on tyres as ...
