THE NEW FL HI-TECH STEERING COLUMN AND SUPPORT
Freeline, the Birel ART accessory division, has devised two innovative solutions. The first one, which is patented, aims at eliminating the flexibility limitation of the chassis which usually the steering column offers, while the second solution allows to quickly vary the steering geometry
The steering column has the task of transmitting the rotation of the steering wheel to the wheels. In karting, it is a simple 20 mm tube to which the steering wheel hub is fastened to in the upper part while, in the lower part, it is equipped with plates which the steering rods are connected to. The steering column is anchored to the chassis in two points: the lower part by means of a threaded pin that fits into a special support of the frame whereas, in the upper part, most of the chassis adopt a bushing made of a plastic material which has the task of holding the steering column in place while still allowing its rotation.
