The adjustable steering column support by Parolin Racing Kart has the peculiarity of allowing you to adjust the Ackermann angle in a few seconds by turning only four screws and without having to remove anything. The system also allows you to refine the adjustment of the front geometries with the aim of managing the various bends of the circuit on which you are driving, always using the narrowest possible steering angle. This generates greater smoothness of the kart and less dissipation of engine power.
Before analysing the Parolin Racing Kart system in detail, let's understand what the Ackermann angle is for. The term “Ackermann” refers to the angle created between the front wheels once they are fully steered. This means the front wheels can steer at different angles. Doing so creates a single centre of rotation which coincides with the meeting point between the two axles of the front wheels and the axis of the rear axle.
