To avoid your passion turning into a succession of fastidious headaches, the concern of all kart drivers should be to extend the useful life-cycle of all their karts’ components. Here are some accessories that can help you keep the performance of your kart intact, thereby maintaining its value.

1 REINFORCEMENT WASHERS FOR SEATS

The seat is an integral part of the chassis system because, once it is assembled, it affects its rigidity and, consequently, the set-up and reactions of the whole kart. You don’t believe it? Read the articles “Tips for improving the kart’s set-up by moving the seat” and “The seat“, in the “Technique” section. Therefore, like the body, the seat is subjected to considerable stresses which, however, are discharged entirely on the fastening points, often causing them to break. However, by fitting safety washers (mandatory for races, but absolutely recommended even if you do not compete) between the seat and the chassis, you can extend their useful life-cycle since this allows you to distribute the tensions over a larger surface. In this way the seat is protected from the risk of breaking through, even in the event of collisions. This is also good news for the driver’s ribs.

2 RADIATOR INTERNAL CLEANING LIQUID

One of the main enemies of radiators is limestone, which over time creates a real barrier between the metal and water, negatively affecting the heat exchange and therefore the system’s cooling capacity. To avoid this problem, New-Line Racing has thought of a liquid specific for the internal cleaning of radiators. Using it is very simple, since all you have to do is pour it into the radiator, turn the kart on the trolley and let it run at idle to circulate the product. Just remember to drain the radiator thoroughly at the end, since only water is allowed in the cooling system, on pain of disqualification.
