Here’s a fun little sneaky trick to pull on someone that you just have to beat in a friendly karting competition.
Tearing through your town in a full-size replica of the tank-like Batmobile that Batman drives in the Arkham Knight game is sure to get you pulled over in no time. But a smaller go-kart version of that same Batmobile? Your local police might just ask to take it for a spin.
Every child should grow up with a little wooden red wagon, but Wishbone Design Studio has found a way to take the classic toy from being just a parent-powered pickup truck, to a gravity-powered go-kart that lets kids take the wheel as they careen down hills.
“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.
Razor can be as proud as they want for making scooters cool again, but what the company will really go down in history for is this creation: a go-kart called the Crazy Cart that turns anyone at the wheel into a master drifter.
Power Wheels? Yeah right. The real upper-class twerps set their sights a little higher, and pester hedge-fund manager parents for something along this lines of this kids-only Porsche. "It's oooooonly $900. Pretty please?"
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.
