The kart front wheel steering
assemblies are mainly made from easy to cut and bent steel flat or
angle components. This avoids the use of welding or specialist
machining equipment. The wheels are commonly available
inexpensive 10" pneumatic wheels with pressed steels split type
rims. The kart steering assemblies are handed - left & right, and are secured
to the support beams by the tilted king pins. The overall
steering geometry uses the Ackerman principal to control the
wheel turn angles and so reduce scrub on
cornering and the tilted king pins introduce a degree of self
centring making the steering stable.
