4 BITS FOR THE PULSE SCREWDRIVER RECOMMENDED BY THE "PRO" MECHANICS OF VARIOUS MANUFACTURERS: WHEN TO USE THEM AND WHEN TO (TO AVOID DAMAGE) ABSOLUTELY NOT USE THEM!
The pulse screwdriver makes it easier to operate on the chassis, makes it faster and saves time (as well as effort) both in the garage at home and on the track, especially when the sessions are short, close and particularly hectic. It is no coincidence that it is one of the tools favoured by professionals who operate in the most prestigious international competitions (to learn more, read "Must Have | What Top Teams Use: pulse screwdriver"). Given that on the kart the pulse screwdriver could be used to screw anything, including, absurdly, even the fastening bolt of the data logger on its support, it is important to emphasize that this tool must be used with the right precautions. This is because it can suddenly be transformed from a "friend" of the kart driver to an "enemy", especially for those who use it while not respecting the right tightening torques and not regularly replacing the small parts according to certain cycles of use. This is why, in order to provide you with a handbook on the optimal use of this tool (protecting you from damage caused by its "improper" use), we asked the professional mechanics of the official teams of some of the main manufacturers of Racing kart chassis (such as OTK Kart Group, CRG, IPKarting, Parolin Racing Kart, Sodikart and Birel ART) to tell us which are the most used sockets, what they are used for and when, on the other hand, it is better not to use them to avoid damage.
N.B. The bits for the screwdriver chuck indicated in this article all have a hex drive (1/4" - 6.35 mm), compatible with most products available on the market. In any case, we recommend that you check compatibility with your model.
