I was at a buddies house, and he has about 12+ karts in his garage. 125cc, 175cc shifters, 4 stroke karts- you name it and he seems to have it. As I was looking over his collection I noticed every kart he had- had an aluninum belly pan. The majority of his karts are either Birel or CRG.
Now my carbon fiber pan is pretty shot. Last race two of the bolt holes ripped as appearently I when I first started karting earlier this year, I had an affinity for hitting curbs and no regard for lawn maintenance.
What do you folks use and/or recommend?
Pro’s and con’s from carbon fiber vs. plastic vs. aluminum?
I know you want your chassis to be able to flex. But I’m in a unique situation as I’m a four stroke guy on a two stroke 32mm chassis, so I don’t flex as much as most anyhow.
Not an expert, so I’m curious what others have to say . . .
