For the Senior drivers, the MERLIN LM30 GO KART CHASSIS, (everything but engine and tires), is the weapon of choice. The frame is very versatile, and is designed to produce less grip. The evolution of the frame has gone through a number of material developments, as well as tubing sizes, including softer tubing for the inner engine rail. The LM30 mixes 32/30mm tubing, which Merlin believes provides a consistent and adaptable product. As with the other Merlin models, this chassis is also provided with a Tillett hand-laid seat in a variety of flexes, pending classification. The chassis is also available in a KZ model for shifter-kart racing.
