Reminder: do not drive your go kart on the highway.
I’m not sure what it is about the fine line between the Best Idea in the World and the Stupidest Idea in the World, but sometimes that line is incredibly blurry. I think this guy having a great time with a four-cylinder turbocharged full-sized car motor in a go-kart wearing no helmet is doing his part to blur that…
In an event that seems like fun until you think about it even for a little bit, a 29-year old mother took a drive in an electric go-kart through Times Square traffic with her 5-year old daughter unsecured on her lap. When police attempted to arrest the mother, she went batshit and kicked the window out of a patrol…
I can’t really tell if this is a video of some kind of junior racing league or just a bunch of badass rednecks blasting around the snow because the voiceover is in Russian. But it sure looks like a lot of fun.
Here’s a fun little sneaky trick to pull on someone that you just have to beat in a friendly karting competition.
“Handles like a go kart.” Possibly the most incorrect, misused phrase in all of car-dom. If you ever see that line an auto review, find the author and slap them.
Ah, go-karts. One of many preferred gathering places of car nerds everywhere. Go-karts are such a nice, relaxing activity to do with your fri—wait. Wait. Hold up right there. We’re going karting? I HAVE TO WIN THIS AND I WILL PUNT YOU OUT OF THE WAY IF YOU’RE SLOW.
There's a reason Ikea does so well: the flat-packed, plywood items they sell are efficient to ship, well-designed, and pretty cheap. So why not use these same basic methods for a go-kart? That's what the people at Ply-Fly must have thought, because they have a Kickstarter for a plywood, flat-pack, owner-assembled…
Not only are these guys racing in the streets at speeds up to 130 miles an hour with no belts or rollcages, it's all legal.
I know, I know. This is a pointless publicity stunt serving one purpose, and one purpose only: to go viral on Youtube. Yet seeing cup holders filled with the Colonel's chicken on a go-kart cracks me up big time.
Hungary has given the world many wonderful things, but perhaps the most wonderufl Hungarian thing of all is this 400 horsepower Audi V8-powered go kart, driven by a mulleted man in boxers and sandals.
Going blind is a terrible thing for anyone, but especially people who enjoy driving. Former New York governor David Paterson is legally blind, but managed to finagle his way into a 14-lap run at a go kart track in Syracuse, N.Y. last week.
We like the Fiat 500 Abarth. We like it more when it takes advantage of its short track and hits a go-kart track. We like it best when it runs a go-kart track for charity.
At the Detroit Auto Show and other shows like it, automakers tend to invite journalists to over-the-top dinners and events so they can schmooze and build relationships. Sometimes there are bands, other times celebrities, and there is always excellent food. Automakers have pampered us for so long that it is now…
Here we see a guy taking his go-kart on a busy street in Sydney. What's more ridiculous, that he's sharing the road with full-size cars, or that he's wanted by the police?
We've all seen Lego Mindstorms kits, right? Those advanced Lego kits with little motors and linkages and a little computer brain box? Sure, you know them. Usually, they're used to make little robots or table-top Rubik's cube solving machines or possibly advanced, immobile, closet-occupying robots. Normally they're…
Las Vegas is the city of sin and of some wicked cars. We hit The Strip, enjoyed the sights and ended up doing battle at a local go-kart track.
Apparently "Diesel" shoes kick butt. They kick so much butt, a super-sized motorized shoe and super-sized motorized butt were built for and crashed together in this commercial. Someone at the ad agency ate the brown acid.
Last year, we drove the Ariel Atom at Lime Rock Park. It’s time for another rendezvous on an abandoned Soviet airfield where we've found the Atom is still the sharpest and simplest driver’s car ever made.
