7 RUBBER AND PLASTIC ELEMENTS TO CHECK (AND REPLACE) TO REDUCE KART VIBRATIONS
If your kart is a few years” old, or if you have just bought a used kart (in this case we recommend you read the following article: "Dr. Tkart | How to refurbish an old used go-kart"
), for a cost of a few Euros it is convenient to replace all the rubber and plastic components used to cushion the vibrations and stresses generated by the activity of a kart on the track. These elements tend to degrade over time and with temperature changes, losing elasticity and damping capacity. It might seem like a minor change but removing some "excessive" vibrations can certainly improve the driving feeling with your vehicle, decrease fatigue when you do many consecutive laps, especially if you are an amateur driver and, in some cases, protect yourself from malfunctions or breakdowns that can ruin your days on the track. What are the main components to keep an eye on? You just have to find out! N.B. Do you think there are other rubber components that deserve a mention?
