- Update of december 2019 article -
The Road Rebel, the approval of which expires in 2020, is CRG's flagship chassis in the shifter classes and the winner of numerous titles in recent years. In the 2019 season, the kart benefitted from several upgrades on the previous model: the main one concerned the axle support box section that allows variations to the wheelbase. However, the restyling of the graphics is the most visible
The research and development of a kart chassis is a continuous endeavour, especially for a company such as CRG, which uses its participation in competition as the main test bench to through which to guide the evolution of its racing products. This is confirmed by the 2019-2020 version of the Road Rebel, subjected to careful updating that has renewed certain important aspects. Starting with the significant amount of work concerning the material of the chassis tubes: chrome molybdenum steel, whose characteristics, especially its hardness, influence chassis flex. However, the main structural innovation was introduced during 2019 half season at the rear end, introducing a new box section that allows variations of the wheelbase in just a few steps. The axle bearing flange, which can be mounted centrally (standard position) and can be varied in height up to 5 mm upwards and 5 mm downwards, can be moved towards the front or rear by loosening the four fixing screws and modifying the wheelbase according to the set-up required. Horizontal movement can also be varied +/- 5 mm from the standard neutral position. This is done by rotating the flange: a procedure that requires little time and does not require axle disassembly.
