Though not as romanticized as the American motor car, motorized karts are an important facet of many popular leisure activities. Golfers who prefer to forgo the live caddy rely on motorized karts to transport their clubs from hole to hole. Go karts are tiny vehicles that both children and adults can race on tracks. Some go kart tracks have even gone so far as to organize karting leagues for young racers. There is a unique motorized kart, either gas or electric, for almost any area where cars are not permitted. People are reliably lazy and will always prefer to drive instead of walk. The next time you need to cross some terrain without a wide road, whether for business or sport, consider these popular motorized kart terms.
Golf Kart - A vehicle used to transport golfers and their clubs from hole to hole over a round of golf. Golf karts rely on power from either gas or electric batteries and generally include a roof accessory so that passengers are protected from falling golf balls as well as the sun. Gas karts have a higher top speed than their electric counterparts, but they tend to require more maintenance.
Moped - Motorized scooter used for travel in urban environments. Moped motor scooters were originally popularized in Europe. They are designed for outdoor driving on the road or sidewalk and rely on power from either gas or electric batteries.
Four Stroke Engine - Typical gas engine used in amusement park go karts intended for outdoor racing. Drivers are encouraged to wear a helmet and gloves.
Lead Acid Batteries - Standard batteries used in low maintenance electric motor go karts.
Crosskart - A competitive form of go kart racing that takes place on speedway, dirt or snow tracks.
Motor karts, such as scooters, all-terrain cars, and go-carts are vehicles that people of all ages can enjoy. Some can be used indoors while others may prefer to drive them on a track, especially those that are into racing. If you're looking for an accessory, like gloves, socks, or a helmet you will find that stores that sell electric or gas vehicles will generally also carry products that go with them. Golf carts, mopeds, and ATV have different power supplies. You will find some that are electric while others use gas. If you're interested in competing head to head or want to join a league or association that conducts races you can search online or in a local phone book. If you have friends that also enjoy motor karts or all-terrain vehicles you can ask them if they are a member of anything. If you need replacement parts or any major repairs, the location where you can buy the scooters, go carts, or electric cars will usually have services available to help you. Having routine maintenance done on your vehicle can help keep any expensive repairs needed to be made. Before buying anything research the different brands to see who has a better customer satisfaction rating. Teams will often compete in competitions across the country. If you want to join a competition you can ask around and see if anyone with the same hobby knows where you can sign up for one. Where you can compete may depend on if you have a gas or electric powered car.
