What would motor sports be without the thrill of speed? If you want to experience this sense of intoxication close up, you can savor the realistic racing atmosphere of an indoor go-kart track, where recreational drivers put a huge load on the gears as they fight it out in their small, four-wheeled vehicles. The gears have to fit into a very small space and be designed to withstand high speeds and high breakdown torques. The gears in the electric karts manufactured by RIMO – a company which has been operating in this area for twenty years now from its base in the Sauerland region north-east of Cologne – are no exception. Georg Roters, Head of Production, invited WITTENSTEIN to a field trial. The SP+ HIGH SPEED gearbox took pole position with ease.
Very high speeds and continuous operation – these are the conditions under which WITTENSTEIN's SP+ HIGH SPEED gearbox performs best of all. A thrilling customer project that will enable RIMO, the electric kart manufacturer, to bring more efficiency and power onto the track with the help of our cutting-edge planetary gearbox illustrates this very aptly. The first field tests, including a trial run at the Nürburgring motor sports complex, show that this is not an empty promise.
