Well done!

The maximum effect of the caster is achieved precisely when entering a bend and up to half way around it. Then, when exiting, the effect is felt much less. From this point of view, the caster works differently than the camber, which, on the other hand, greatly affects the behaviour of the kart even from the mid-bend and when exiting.

INCORRECT!

The conveyors are mounted on the sides of the engine in order to divert air towards the rear area of the cylinder, improving its cooling. Their size, in the design phase, must be carefully studied:, in fact, the 60 cc engine has low horsepower and too large conveyors would end up having a negative effect, creating a barrier that would decrease a kart’s performance.
