Development of adjustable systems for a Go-Kart

Authors(3) :-Abhijeet Singh, Tarun Singh, Vansh Mudgil

A go kart is a small racing car with a lightweight and skeleton body. It is used in traditional kart racing and for amusement purposes. The main aim of the project is to develop a go kart which is drivable by majority of the people having different height and age. We equipped our kart not only with the mandatory systems but also with innovative systems such as adjustable engine mounting, adjustable camber settings and adjustable pedals. All these systems are successfully designed and fabricated without compromising the weight of the kart which has improved the vehicle dynamics. Safety and ergonomics of the vehicle have been considered throughout from designing till the kart is fabricated. While participating in any racing event for a competition, kart must be tuned according to the driver and with the help of these innovations karts can be tuned very quickly also reducing the repairing and maintenance time.
