THE RICCIARDO KART DR01, MODEL S10 2019
- Article update of January 2019 -
The new DR – S10 is the evolution of the S9 chassis signed Ricciardo Kart and manufactured by Birel Art. As in the last update, even this time we have not found any radical changes (the frame is always the DR 01 homologated in 2015), but rather a series of improvements which involve different aspects. In particular, some technical details developed on the track which simplify the use and management of the kart.
In the front, the chassis has changed in the pedal area, in particular the attachment where the iron of the front bumper is fastened to, is 30 mm smaller, thus allowing more adjustable chassis in the front, which adds the benefit of better drivability.
Another important change is the steering shaft support. Birel Art technicians have studied an innovative solution which allows us to increase the rigidity of the chassis: the end part of the two tubes that form the steering column, are adjustable and fixed together so as to make it a single body construction piece. An additional advantage of this solution is the simplicity of adjusting the steering wheel height, which can be modified by simply loosening only one screw (in most chassis this operation is more time consuming). The great movement of range for the steering wheel allows for drivers of all heights to find their best driving position.
The smaller insertion of the iron on the chassis improves the response of the Kart in general in the front which makes the chassis more agile and helps the drivers maintain better control and a more precise handling of the Kart.read more
The new steering support is more rigid thanks to the direct junction between the two chassis tubes and is equipped with a system which facilitates the adjustment of the steering wheel position.read more
A simple yet very useful modification: the double fastening of the ring nut adjustment of the geometry of the C-channel rail of the chassis. The introduction of a second screw allows to improve the fastening of the inserted adjustment.read more
The new removable bar equipped with spherical plain bearings allows a more gradual torsion of the chassis.read more
The steering wheel, in the 2019 version, has a black configuration rather than a blue one, while the color of the covering remains unchanged.read more
An improvement which also involves the adjustment of the “Cs” in the front geometry with bushings that have a double fastening screw system. This allows the bushing to be kept perfectly in place even when the Camber is increased, allowing for a more precise adjustment of the geometry.
As for the accessories, there is a new removable bar marked Freeline, the accessory line of the Birel ART, Ricciardo Kart and Kubica Kart brands. The bar is illustrated by two spherical plain bearings fixed to the sides: these allow to change the rigidity of the front of the Kart depending on the position in which the bar is fixed and, additionally, a more uniform and gradual torsion on the chassis itself.
