Default Thanks for letting me in!

This is bhushan from Mumbai…a B.E. (Mechanical) from RGIT (Versova), and currently working with L&T Oil & Gas. I’ve grown-up admiring cars and under-the-hood stuff…not so interested with all the cosmetics on the outside. I’m naturally inclined towards suspension and transmission systems. As my final year project for B.E, my team & i built “KRIEG150”…the gokart with suspension and mild offroading capacities…here are the tech-specs in brief:

"KRIEG150"

Engine:
Bajaj PULSAR 150 1st Generation (free flow exhaust - no silencer!!!)

Transmission:
The power split-up from the P150 engine to the two rear wheels was done by a shaft which was conceptualized, designed (structurally sound) in Ansys by my team; fabrication outsourced (not my cup of tea!) The shaft could allow for vertical wheel deflections of upto 150mm. It was without a differential though due to cost concerns

Chassis:
Conceptualized, designed (structurally sound) in Ansys and FABRICATED in-house (college machine-shop), by my team.

Wheels:
Bajaj Super 8” wheels

Suspension:
1) Front:
Unequal Double wish-bone with horizontal spring mounting. Wishbones from Premier Padmini were cut to suit our requirement and rod-end bearings used to mount them onto chassis
Springs were from Bajaj M80 (sourced from Kurla chorbazar)

2) Rear:
Independent single-sided swing arms sourced from Bajaj Autorikshaw. Springs were from Bajaj Pulsar (sourced from Kurla chorbazar)

Brakes:
Bajaj AutoRikshaw (hydraulic drum-brakes)

Steering:
1) Mechanism: Modified Ackermann mechanism with the “go-kart touch” to it
2) Steering Wheel and Steering Column: Maruti Omni (sourced from Kurla chorbazar)
3) Steering Spindle: taken from Rack of Tata Indica (from Kurla chorbazar)
4) Front Wheel knuckles: Fabricated In-House

In all, the parts of this project come from 3 different TWO-Wheelers, 1 THREE Wheeler and 2 Four Wheelers! - All integrated using imagination of 5 Auto Freaks (myself included!)

Currently i'm working on a 6WD ATV on the lines of the Argo480 6X6...will neeed tremendous tech-support from Team-BHP on that front..

please chk out the pics of the KRIEG150...

Note from the Team-BHP Support Team : Please take the time to use proper punctuation as per Team-BHP rules. Avoid...typing...like...this. Thanks.

well we did manage an approximate 55kmph on it in 4th gear (the speed was chked by a Passion Plus driven close beside it and matching the speed - the reason being that the gokart had no speedo!) anyway, driving that not-so-timid machine even at 40kmph was a bit scary inspite of the rudimentary and uncomfortable but safe seatbelts we had put on it.

one interesting point is that since we had put a 11Nm@7000rpm engine on a kart with 8" rims and not the usual 15" of the P150, the gokart would ALWAYS start-off with a burnout on any given surface!!!

congrats, i think this is the season of the home built/indigenous designer students and designers.

there is a thread of indigenous 1000cc motor cycle running already in the motorbikes section and a awesome project to live through building the machine.

so is your build.
awesome effort mate.
a hearty welcome to t-bhp.

Check this similar project out :http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/introd...kart-kvx1.html (Off Road KArt .. KVX1)

Also, i suggest you start a new thread for your project and leave this as an intro-only thread, since it will lock automatically after a few weeks (preventing further posts).

cya around,

Cool Project Bhushan,

Welcome onboard, have a nice stay.

Just one question why did you choose pulsar 150cc & not some bigger engine like Bullet 350cc to have more power & torque

One of the reasons that i used the P150 was that i got the engine from a reliable source and that too pretty quickly (but now i know that i was duped commercially ). The second reason was that the 350cc biggies (enfields and RD's )have a comparatively larger footprint on the chassis -> and i already had too much to pack into that tiny framework. hence the selection.
