The Praga Grand model, Praga’s first model, is back this year with a newly redesigned look. It has a 32mm tube frame, except for the front crossbar made from a 30mm diameter tube. This makes it easier to handle and, consequently, a more manageable frame, especially for drivers who are just starting their karting experience and, although they are using a high performing vehicle, prefer the easier setup. Overall, however, regardless of the driver’s driving experience and fine-tuning of the setup, the Grand model is more suitable for more precarious grip conditions.
The Grand model also has a “two curve” frame. The differences lie mainly in the central part of the frame where the longitudinal tubes have different angles: arrow-shaped, in the case of the Grand model. The central crossbar is also perfectly straight and perpendicular to the longitudinal axis. The Grand model has 3 removable stiffening bars: front, side, and rear.
The Grand model is available in the following categories: KZ, KF, DD2
The Grand Model uses tubes made from unique and specific compounds of various steels. No standard steel compounds already on the market have been used, as “special recipes” have been created for the production of these tubes. What are the benefits? You achieve maximum elasticity of the material according to the different conditions of adherence and grip on the various tracks and in different championships around the world. It is also possible to simulate the damping/suspension effect of racing cars that should congenitally be absent in karts for obvious reasons. This research on special materials is constantly refined in order to achieve maximum performance and produce a vehicle that is fast in international competitions and also national events all over the world where they always use different tires.
Particular attention in the design phase was given to the “C” which, using an innovative process, are not deformed when welded to the frame. This means that the characteristic angles should never need resetting to straighten out certain sections of the frame during the kart construction phase. All the models in this new range are fitted with brand new bearing carrier plates: their profile is higher and the housing is more rigid, thus allowing higher levels of exploitation of the elastic properties of the axle. Moreover, the Ackermann angle has also been adjusted which impacts the steering lock angle and the behaviour of the kart.
Particular care was given to the design and realisation of all standard components, with attention to detail in the basic version, “a one-piece construction” without using the additional range of optionals or accessories. Examples of extreme construction accuracy are the adjustable footrests, hubs, brake pump, the rear brake calliper with radial coupling, and the bearing carrier flange
The Praga KZ is the ideal kart for racing in all categories, national and international (KZ1 and KZ2) which foresee the use of karts with a gearbox. Praga exploits the experience and successes of the associated Intrepid brand over recent years: above all its victory in the 2010 & 2012 KZ1 World Cup.
A distinctive feature of the Praga KZ is the braking system, called R2, mounted by regulation on both its front and rear axle. The system comprises a calliper (enbloc, machined from one piece with radial coupling) and a floating disc at the rear. Up front we find a disc and calliper for each wheel (always enbloc with radial coupling), in addition to 25mm diameter spindles. The system is operated by the brake pedal only which controls the two pumps with a distributor for front and rear braking. Another distinctive feature of this model is the installation of the levers to control the gears: therefore the clutch lever behind the steering wheel and the shift lever that acts on a uniball.
The Praga Kart KF is dedicated to all those categories that use a single speed engine, whether it be a direct intake 100cc engine or a modern engine used in KF categories (KF1, KF2, KF3 or KF4) rather than a generic TaG. In building its karts destined for use in the KF categories, Praga Kart exploits the success that its “associated company” Intrepid has always achieved in the most prestigious and challenging competitions in every category, from K3 to the former Super KF categories.
A distinctive feature of the KF model are the spindles, with no installation of front brakes (only the FRM version has this supplementary and optional accessory) but, if necessary, allow the integration of this accessory without having to swap the spindles for a different model. Moreover, the Ackermann angle has also been adjusted which impacts the steering lock angle and the behaviour of the kart.
