7Kart XV
We spent 2 years developing the replacement for the MK4 and launch it at Kartmania. This was the biggest change to the 7Kart design, as we go over to the wishbone design front end, and to mark this occasion we dropped the “MK” designation and christened it the XV (roman numerals for 15, the year it was launched).
