You can add a suspension system to your go kart in order to make it safer and more enjoyable to drive. The suspension system will help smooth out bumps and potholes, which makes for a much more comfortable ride. It also helps eliminate handling problems caused by bad road conditions.
There are several different types of suspension systems available for go karts. They include coil springs, leaf springs and torsion bars. Coil springs are installed in pairs on each side of the rear axle and they consist of two steel coils that are compressed when weight is applied. Leaf springs consist of flat pieces of metal that have been curved into shape, while torsion bars consist of round steel bars that are twisted lengthwise in order to provide resistance against lateral loads (side-to-side forces).
The type of suspension system you choose depends on how much power you want to put into your go kart as well as how much money you’re willing to spend on it. If you want something cheap with minimal power output then a torsion bar system may be right for you; however if you want something more powerful then a coil spring or leaf spring setup might be better suited.
