In today’s world when people go out to purchase a bike or a car, the first concern that arises in their mind is about the top speed of the vehicle. Many people don’t consider the parameters required to maintain this speed. Karting is commonly perceived as the stepping stone of a formula one car, as we rise upwards from one car to another the speed and G’s increase from stage to stage. French philosopher Voltaire has quoted that ‘With great power comes great responsibility, on the same grounds, ‘With Superior Speed comes the need of an efficient and effective braking system.’ Most international Go-Karts operate at a speed of 100-120 mph (180 km/hr.), for handling this speed one needs a very streamlined braking system. Effective braking system is the key to control any vehicle at high speeds. In this paper we are designing and analyzing a Braking system for national level inter-college Go-Kart competition. All the calculations done in this paper are pertaining to our kart. The Analysis of the disc brake is done in Ansys 18.0 Workbench.
