Australian Independent Dirt Kart Association

Rule Change 15.4.6 (Midgets)

Please make sure you pass this on to your club scrutineers.

Midgets are exempt from Rule 15.4.6 as the karts are manufactured in a way that steering stops are not able to be used or aluminium angle used on the Tie Rod ends.

However a piece of (round) rubber is to be fitted (cable tied or glued ) on the Bottom of the steering shaft  so there is no metal to metal contact with the steering shaft and tie rods.

15.4.6 Tie rods are not to come into contact with steering shaft when at full lock left or right. Adjustable steering stops required on right and left sides of kart to prevent tie rods from making contact with steering shaft and locking up steering.
