7 truths (or false myths) about kart axles...MINI!

In a racing kart, the axle (read "Technique | The Axle" to learn more) plays a crucial role in the chassis setup and, therefore, on its handling on the track (why? How? To learn more, see "Tips from the Experts | Improving the setup by changing the axle, Albino Parolin's advice"). In MINI categories, moreover, given the use of engines with generally low power, the choice of this component is even more relevant in optimizing performance. Precisely for this reason, there are countless doubts hovering in the paddock about axles for MINI karts. So we turned to Carlo Pacitto, manager of the CRG racing department for the MINI category, and Nicola Biasetto, technical manager of Parolin Motorsport, to dispel some false myths and provide concrete answers to the questions that many karters (and parents) ask.
