Go-kart racing nowadays has rapidly gain popularity in our local sports scenery. For that reason, there is a need to improved the performance of Unimas own go-kart. Therefore, this report is about redesigning the transmission system of the go-kart in view of achieving higher performance. The transmission system of go-kart consists of the engine, the centrifugal clutch and the chain drive system. The part selected for redesigning was the centrifugal clutch system and in view to provide the go-kart with more power, a new engine was installed. Detailed information on the operation of the centrifugal clutch system is included in chapter two. The overall performances of the go-kart were verified through experiment and test run. The overall output power of the go-kart were determined by speeding the go-kart within a measured distance (100 meter). By using this method, the velocity, acceleration, force and the total horsepower of the go-kart were verified. This experiment provides the detailed performance of the go-kart. The final chapter concludes the project achievement and recommendations are given to serve as an orientation for further improvement on the go-kart performances.
