19 February 2020

Those who love karting “suffer” to see even one damaged and not aesthetically perfect accessory. On the other hand, for a sport that takes place on a track, among tyre debris, oil, dust, etc., damage to the most exposed accessories, such as the radiator, brake calipers and exhaust, is almost inevitable. There is, however, a special paint to restore damaged surfaces to their original appearance. In these pages we find out what they are used for, how much they cost and where to buy these and other accessories that are useful to kart drivers.

SPECIAL PAINT

Dust, debris, oil … During the normal use of a kart on tracks there are many elements that, over time, end up ruining the paint of different parts, such as the radiator, brake calipers, exhaust … However, there is nothing that cannot be repaired, because there is a “special paint” which, sprayed on the areas to be restored, is able to bring the kart accessories (almost) back to their original splendor. In particular, this paint is resistant to high temperatures and has exceptional clinging power, even on critical surfaces.

NON-SLIP SEAT KIT

Unlike single-seaters, karts have no seat belts. The only thing you can do to remain in the correct position is therefore your feet, pressing on the pedals and arms that tighten the steering wheel. If you are looking for additional help to avoid slipping while braking, the best thing to do is to glue a non-slip film onto the bottom of the seat. This will increase the grip between the suit and the fiberglass, helping you maintain your position.
