DPE Racing Kart Setup

Kart Setups


At DPE, we want all drivers of our karts to perform at their peak and get the best results possible every time they hit the track, so we provide suggested kart setup information for various kart models and Australian racing classes. Please note that these setups are starting points only, and may need to be altered depending on track and weather conditions and other variables. When adjusting the setup of your kart, please remember to only make one change at a time before testing the change.
