    Hello.

    Can aanyone help me out with some basic setup for the EVK chassis?

     

    I have never had a kart with the 20 hole pills and I’m currently wondering where to start from etc and where is good on worn tires?

     

    Torsion bars ? I understand Tonykart sells many types of bars?

     

    Thank you in advance.

    Just start with baseline/standard/neutral everything. The OTK stuff works great at the factory baseline setup for 95% of the conditions.

    10-15mm front spacers
    neutral caster (top and bottom pills facing the same way)
    1390mm rear track width
    front blade bar flat
    medium hubs
    3rd bearing loose

    Kart should work pretty good at all grip levels with that. We usually would twist the front bar from flat to angled or vertical if we needed more front grip and we would add caster as needed.

    ^Agreed except 3rd bearing, tight.

    Seat struts (2) each side

    5mm out on the front spacers or a 45˚ rotation on the front bar for more stiffness would probably fix that. Or a tick more caster.

    Thanks guys I appreciate the help.

    I was struggling a little when the tires were little worn I wanted a little more front bite on turn in?

    Apart from that the Tonykart is a brilliant kart.
