The non-shifter version of the new Kosmic Kart Mercury R shares the main characteristics with the version for the gearbox categories, at the top is the KZ in which, on its debut, the chassis graduated as the World Champion.
Compared to the previous S version, KF World Champion in 2015, the OTK Group technicians have introduced several evolutions, developed in close synergy with the Kosmic Racing Department.
The Kosmic Mercury R 2019
presents interesting innovations
in various areas of the chassis, while the frame
design remains unchanged, linked to the homologation expiring in 2020
. Completely new, for example, are the seat supports
, manufactured with a small block
welded to the frame on which a bracket
which allows you to adjust
the seat to the desired height
is fastened. This system avoids having to directly bend
the support plates
of the chassis to adapt them to the seat, an operation which presented the potential breakage
due to the repeated bending. The small blocks also offer benefits to the setup
of the vehicle, eliminating the tension
which is generated by the supports when fastening the seat.
These tension issues are detrimental
to the neutral distribution
of the weight. Additionally, the automated welding
of the frame, a great point of strength in the OTK
manufacturing, allows a perfectly identical
chassis with error
margins which are basically nonexistent.
