Kart Analysis 2021 - Always Over the Top! NEWS 2021 - Given the great technical and commercial success of the software Kart Analysis, other at a constant refinement of the current version Basic and Pro, we've developed for 2021 the new version Experience. In this version we've introduced a calculation model for the tires again more advanced to have a better analysis of the behavior in all the track conditions, and from one tire to another. Moreover we've added the utility for the calculation of the chassis torsion, and expanded both the kart behavior analysis, both the indications to optimize the setup. Now the software calculates also the effort that the driver has to do, and the additional resistance that the engine must win in function of the setting that you're using. About the setup indications, in this version, in addition to optimize globally the kart performance, there are also specific indications to improve braking and entry corner, or exit corner and traction.


Presentation

The fine-tuning of the chassis and of the tyres how you know in the competitions is fundmental to be winner, and in the kart this res again more important. The intervention areas are many, so even for technicians more experts to find the best track by track, driver by driver, and in different weather and grip conditions, is really difficult. Thanks to the Kart Analysis software all it is very easy and precise.

In fact, the Kart Analysis software with special algorithms process the data that you capture from your acquisition togive a technicians and mechanics clear indications on how are working the chassis and the tires, and directly recommending the interventions of setup and of tire pressure to have the best performance in the differents tracks, conditions, and in relation to the driver driving.

The software after some years of studies and track tests has been introduced on the trade in 2015 and seen technical success obtained and the continuous positive feedback on the track he had a big one development that has led it to its latest version to be a point of reference technical not only for the kart sector but also for the whole racing panorama.

How it works?

1. Go on track for your session 2. Download the acquired data

The software Kart Analysis can work with all the main data acquisition system (2D, AIM, ALFANO, RKS, STARLANE, UNIPRO, COSWORTH), the important thing is that they have applied the speed and lateral acceleration sensors (in the case of Starlane acquisitions to place of the lateral acceleration, it is important that detected trajectory GPS).

The operation of the software is very simple, in fact is sufficient to export the data from your acquisition software and import them in Kart Analysis. At this point entering in the software the data of your kart and setup the software calculates all the values importants to understand the behavior of your frame chassis and of your tyres.

The instructions that the software provides for the kart setup and the tires pressure are derived from what you actually acquired from your acquisition system so you can directly solve the problems that the driver has encountered in the driving to get the maximum performance.

In fact in addition to the main results that allow you to correct your set-up and your tire pressure in according to the characteristics of the track, the conditions of grip and the driving style of the driver, for the technical more attentive the software also shows a series of quantities that allow adetailed analysis of the behavior of the frame, the engine and the transmission.
PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS
Analysis kart balance - engine performance - tires grip - chassis balance - axle - Kart Analysis by NT-Project At the end of the calculation, the software first shows the behavior that the kart had in the session being considered.
Thanks to these calculations you can have an immediate view of the engine performance, of the grip that the tires has been able to provide on braking, traction and corner both to the front and to the rear, and of the behavior that the kart has had in the various stages of driving, braking, entry corner, exit corner and acceleration. Moreover, since that the kart doesn't have the differential, the software shows how the rear axle has affected the various driving phases.
BEST SETUP CALCULATION
After analyzing the behavior of the kart, the software provides direct information on how to intervene on the chassis to have the best setup and the tires pressure to achieve the best grip at every point of the track.
VERSIONS BASIC and PRO The software will tell you how to modify the kart set-up by providing the following settings:

CAMBER
CASTER
ECCENTRICS
ACKERMANN
TOE
FRONT TRACK
REAR TRACK
AXLE
BARS


In addition to the chassis settings, the software calculates the best BRAKE DISTRIBUTION.

It will also tell you how to adjust the TIRES PRESSURE

VERSION EXPERIENCE
In the Experience version of the software, together to the indications to have the globally the best setting, the software provides indications on how intervene on the setup to improve the braking phase or the corner entry, or the corner exit and the traction. This is very useful to exploit the quality and the needs of the driver, in fact thanks to this indications you can improve the performance in the zone that you think are more important for the driver characteristics.

VERSIONS PRO and EXPERIENCE
In the Experience and Pro version as well as adjusting the pressures to have the best performance in the first laps, the software will also show you how to adjust the pressures based on atmospheric and ground conditions and in relation to the number of laps that you need to do. In fact, the software calculates the TIRE TEMPERATURE  lap by lap and shows you how to adjust them to always have the optimal pressure both in qualifying and in race conditions.

PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS IN EACH TRACK POINT
Together the main performance analysis, and to the indications directly provided to have the best setting, the software allows to do a detailed analysis of the kart behavior, and of the driver driving, so you can exploit actually the acquired data to understand where you can improve, both session after session, both race after race.
For first the software shows how change the quantities more influential the performance in each point of the track
Kart Understeer - Oversteer analysis on braking - entry corner - exit corner and traction - Kart Analysis by NT-Project VERSIONS BASIC - PRO - EXPERIENCE
The first quantity analyzed is the kart slip angle, that determines the understeer and the oversteer that the driver must face. This is important when you compare two setting to see where actually the driving is improved, the points most critical of the track, and if you work with young driver, to help them to understand their feelings and needs.
VERSIONS BASIC - PRO - EXPERIENCE
Other aspect very important in the kart is how the rear axle influences the driving, in fact in the kart there isn't the differential, therefore analyze how much and where it intervenes, is fundmental for the choices of caster and hardness that you have to do.

In function of the setting that you choose the kart driving can become very tiring, and this can induce mistakes, or a loss of the performance lap after lap, for this in the Experience version has been introduced also this calculation that allows to see how many the different setting are hards to manage from the driver.
VERSION EXPERIENCE
The tires slip angle determines a resistance on kart, and this can considerably influence the performance above all on kart with little engines, or low power, for this in the Experience version has been introduced this calculation that allows to see how many the different setting takes force from the engine, and in which track point the setup penalizes more the engine.

The analysis of these data for the technicians more expert may help to get more detailed informations to refine further your set-up, infact for example:
The analysis of the load that you have in each point of the track on the four wheels , allows you to instantly see how are stressed the tyres and then have the right references on the inflation pressure to use to let work each tire with the optimum deflection and thus to obtain the maximum performance and the correct consumption. Chassis set-up and optimal tire pressure from your acquisition with Kart Analysis
The analysis of the camber that instantly have the four wheels is crucial because the camber affects significantly the adherence that the tyre can offer in different conditions, and so to know on whic values of camber work the tyres in relation to the set-up and characteristics and conditions of the track is essential for make the appropriate corrections and to be always in the range optimal.

The analysis of the lifting that the four wheels have in the different parts of the track , in fact the karts having no differential and then requires the lifting of the internal rear wheel to better tackle the corner, this is linked to the choices of the set-up that will inevitably affect the behavior not only of the inner rear, but also of the other wheels. Based on these calculations can then easily see behavior of all wheels and have an immediate idea of pros and cons of the choices made.
