The same type of 10"
pneumatic wheels as are used on the front are also used
for the rear drive wheels. A simple modification is made
to the rear wheels to add a torque plate attachment to
fix the wheels to the rear drive axles.
The radial load capacity of
each wheel is about 136 kgf (300 lbs)
As with the front - the rear wheels
are commonly available and inexpensive 10" pneumatic split steel
rim type wheels. A minor modification is made to the rear wheels
to add a torque plate which engages with ground torque transfer
flats on the drive box main output axles.
The rear tyres see more wear and
tear than the fronts - they are the drive wheels and also
provide the kart's braking forces.
