Abstract: Design of component for automobile consists of three main principles: 1. Optimization 2. Safety 3. Comfort The primary objective of the chassis and frame is to provide a 3-dimensional protected space around the driver that will keep the driver safe. The primary objective of the roll cage is to provide a 3-dimensional protected space around the driver that will keep the driver safe. These objectives were met by roll cage material that has more strength and less in weight giving us an advantage in reduction of weight. The strength of roll cage and chassis is increased by almost eliminating the bends and joints during the welding. The modeling of structure and design of roll cage and chassis is done by the software SOLIDWORKS. To start with the initial design of the frame and chassis , some design guidelines are to be set .They include intended transmission, steering and the most important part is placing and fixing them in the correct placement , mounting of seat , design features and manufacturing methods
- Arnaud Sivert made the electric go-karts have the same dynamics as competition petrol gokarts, with an honorable autonomy of 20-30 minutes.
- Prof. Alpesh V. Mehta ested the kart for its fuel economy under three conditions running fully on IC engine, running fully on electric motor, & running on combination of both electric and IC-engine (hybrid).
- HemankDabhade designed and fabricated competition go kart is as per the World Karting Association Standards.
- Lim Wai Tuck made the design and fabrication of UMP Go-Kart Chassis and analyze the Go-Kart chassis structure.
