Home Feedback Brakes                        



No Photo I've seen several attempts to build brakes with sticks that rub on the road.  Even when powerful enough to actually lift the kart they never seem to be very effective in stopping them.



When the driver lifted their end of the brake lever the other end rubbed on the wheel.  This actually worked fairly well.
This disk brake can caliper brake was purchased on the web.  It's directly connected to the rear axle, as is the drive sprocket.
We put the gas pedal on one foot and the brake on the other.  This turned out to be a mistake because an inexperienced friend drove it by pressing hard on both pedals.  The disk warped and the calipers wore out.

Yes we drive with shoes on.  This was a modeled photo.
