4 ENGINE PLATES FOR DIRECT DRIVE KARTS
In Shifter karts, the engine plate is usually supplied, together with the engine, by the manufacturer of the engine and it has a complex and delicate function, because it must act as a union between the "thermal" part and the transmission (to learn more, read "Technique | Kart engine plates"). In the Direct Drive classes, on the other hand, replacing this element with aftermarket products is a fairly common practice. Why? Usually the goal is to reduce the weight of the powertrain or simplify the management of certain kart management activities (such as adjustments to the position of the engine following a change in the ratio). We selected four plates to give you an overview of the market for these products... Particulars, each with its own peculiarity compared to the "standard" ones.
N.B. Do you think there are other products that can be added to this selection? Don't hesitate to share them with other TKART users in the "Contributions" section at the end of the article. The community will be grateful to you!
