    I was reading the following in the rules:

    “All karts must have an effective dual connection between the brake pedal and calliper.”

    My kart has a hydraulic brake calliper so am not sure how a secondary system would be fitted. Can anyone explain how this is done?

    Hi u need to connect a cabel from the brake pedal to the brake calaper arm just below or above the bolt that connects the bar to the pedal normally just run a section of old brake cabel around the inside of the pedal and in to the spear hole on the brake calaper arm and cabel clamp them together so if the bar breaks the cabel will still give u some way of stopping the kart ,,if still not shore have a look at all the other karts when u are at the track u will see how it works then all the best greg

    The connection from my pedal to the calliper is all hydraulic, there are no bars or cables. Is the dual system only required if it already uses cables?
