The technical aspect is the essential basis for a true knowledge of all the secrets of a go-kart. Of course, you might think ... But what a bore! Wrong objection, because with the right experts to guide, illustrations, detailed but simple explanations, practical advice, even the most difficult technical aspects concerning the driving, construction and behavior of the kart can be pleasant, understandable and above all, useful.
Because knowing in detail how a disc brake is built and how it works, for example, serves to learn the correct kart braking technique, as well as discovering the secrets of an OK or KZ engine brings a better knowledge on how to drive a kart single speed or on how to drive a go kart with gears.
The same goes for what are the fundamental foundations of the kart set-up: caster, camber, convergence, height adjustment. But also the adjustment of the kart attitude, the tire pressures, the roadways, the bars, the seat position, the weight distribution, the adjustment of the eccentric kart bushings ... Or to investigate in depth the role and the reasons every characteristic of individual components of the go-kart, such as the axle, the rims, the bearings.
For those who, on the other hand, are more interested in the practical aspects of the guide, although analyzed from their more purely technical side, there is space to read all about the power losses or the decisive role of weight distribution, to continue with the analysis of the asphalt and go-kart trajectories. Discovering that technique is a fascinating world that is closely linked to the passion for driving and for the search for performance on the track.
