Accessories and products that help you optimise your karting experience and off the track are always welcome. In this series of kart diver’s “allies”, we start with the brakes cleaner, a product whose composition is specially designed to remove grease from the braking system without affecting the material the pads are made of. The second piece of advice regards the petrol tube that reaches the carburetor, so there is space for transfer pumps and fittings for the cooling system. As they say: “there really is something for everyone”.

The braking system is one of the most important parts of a kart; obviously, to achieve the best possible performance on the track, as well as safety from an even more fundamental point of view. This is why it is extremely important to check that it is functioning properly before each day on the track and clean it continuously. In regard to the latter activity, the most suitable product to use is the “brakes cleaner”, a detergent whose composition is specially designed to remove grease from the system and, in particular, from the disk brake and pads, without affecting the pad friction material.

2 FUEL LINE SUPPORT

In the guillotine carburetors, usually used to power the gear motors, there is often the drawback of having a petrol tube that does not have a linear path and, therefore, does not aid the flow of the incoming mixture. A problem that can be easily solved by purchasing a fuel support: an accessory that, after it has been fitted to the carburetor, allows the tube to remain in the correct position.
