Hi! I currently run a 1020mm Medium Axle (which has been cut down from 1040mm), however I’ve heard some guys at my track (which is quite tight) saying that they’re running their rear axles cut down to 1000mm. I would like to give this a shot, however I would rather get some advice before cutting down my axle any further, as I can’t find much information about the axle width online.
How would the axle width affect the handling of the kart, given that the track width and hub length would remain the same? Would running a shorter axle improve turn in on the kart since the rear track is ‘softer’ as there is less axle inside the hub?
