News - Mechatron KartNews - Mechatron Kart Test Days in Schaafheim<p> After some times of in house development based on detail improvements of the product, MECHATRON Kart is back at the track in these days to test different improvements to statisfy the demands of our customers.</p> <p> The focus is now at perfectionizing the combination of the ME-SHIFTER F1 with the newest developments of the engine manufactures at the TAG segment with electrostarter engines. Our company therefore works close in collaboration with ignition and engine manufacturers to optimize the result in F1 Shifting experience.</p> <p> Several problems, observed in the past, were focused and solved so far such as reed problems, exhaust detonation, problems with the ignition cut at different digital ignitions.</p> <p> At the weekend of 13.06. / 14.06. the final Tests took place in Schaafheim, Germany, and lead to excellent results, driven with OK1 / IAME X30 Super Shifter 175cc and CRG / TM KZ10 ES.
