On the occasion of the 4th round of the OK and OKJ 2021 FIA Karting European Championship in Zuera we saw how some top teams try to prevent small debris from entering the engine, causing significant damage. In addition to the 3 solutions seen on the track, we then selected an accessory to purchase for this reason.

1 ELASTIC FABRIC ON THE INTAKE SILENCER

When the terrain surrounding a track is particularly sandy, the wind often brings small debris, dust and sand onto it. The likelihood that this debris can unexpectedly enter the intake silencer and, subsequently, the engine, is very high. One solution to reduce the likelihood of this happening is to apply a layer of elastic fabric to the intake silencer tubes.
