Mechanical Engineering students of PDM College of Engineering have designed & developed a single cylinder go-kart using scrap. The go-kart is built by a 6-member team of 3rd year Mechanical Engineering students under the supervision and guidance of Nikhil Sikka (Head of Deptt) and Manoj Taneja (Assistant Professor) of Mechanical Engineering Department
The go-kart is unique in many ways. Besides having a 4 stroke, oil cooled DTS i engine with 19 nm torque and 21 bhp of power, it has Rear wheel chain drive system with 2 gears one of engine and one fitted on rear axle.
