7 TRUTHS (OR FALSE MYTHS) ABOUT PERFECT KART ENGINE MANAGEMENT… GALIFFA KART TIPS!

If we compare the kart to a living being, the engine is undoubtedly its heart, the element without which the chassis cannot move and “live. Just like a human body, it is very important to ensure that the heart is performing at its best. To accomplish this task, it is essential not to be misled by some paddock myths (especially those frequented by amateur drivers) and to listen to the advice of those who put their hands on engines every day to compete (and win), at the highest levels of this sport. For this reason, we relied on Elvezio Mercolini, mechanic and engine specialist at Galiffa Kart, one of the most successful kart engineers in the international scene (amongst other things, he won the 2022 KZ FIA Karting World Championship in Le Mans, with CRG). Although Galiffa Kart’s area of expertise is TM Kart/TM Racing Shifter engines, together with Elvezio Marcolini we have addressed topics that can also be useful for owners of Direct Drive engines. Which ones? Test yourself with our questions and find out!
