6 quizzes on kart’s hubs. which is better, aluminum or magnesium?

Hubs are a crucial component in a kart. In fact, they are the connection between the wheel’s rims and the rear axle rather than the front stub axles. In addition to this functional aspect, hubs also have a significant impact on the behavior of the vehicle as a whole. Subject to extensive development work implemented by technicians and drivers over the years, these accessories are among the main variables to be evaluated when configuring a kart’s set-up. Among the countless parameters that distinguish the various types of hubs, the most obvious certainly concerns their construction material: aluminum or magnesium. We therefore turned to Cash van Belle, historic team manager of the IPKarting Group as well as an excellent chassis expert to ask him a few questions on the most significant differences between the two “families” of materials and shed some light on a series of doubts surrounding them.
