Gas VS Electric: Which Go-Kart is Best?

by | Dec 6, 2017 | Things To Know

When it comes to go-karts, the age-old debate of electric versus gas has been a topic of discussion. While there are a few advantages to gas karts, especially since they are the original karts many of us grew up with, we firmly believe that electric karts offer far more benefits. That’s why, at Accelerate, we exclusively use electric karts.

Here are six advantages of electric karts, encompassing both competitive and environmental aspects:

  1. No Exhaust Fumes: With electric karts, you’ll experience a cleaner and safer indoor racing environment. Gas karts can produce hazardous fumes that may lead to discomfort and sickness, but with electric karts, you’ll never encounter this issue.
  2. Even Weight Distribution: Electric karts boast an evenly-distributed battery weight, reducing the likelihood of tipping or flipping during your race. In contrast, gas karts have heavy engines located in a single area, making them unevenly balanced and more susceptible to tipping.
  3. High-Tech Diagnostic Monitoring: Our electric karts are equipped with advanced diagnostic monitoring systems, ensuring that each kart performs at its best and creating a level playing field for all racers. In comparison, gas karts can wear over time, and sometimes, luck becomes a determining factor in winning races.
  4. Reverse Gear: Electric karts come with a reverse gear, which proves valuable in case of a spin. You can quickly maneuver out of a tough situation and rejoin the race without requiring manual assistance.
  5. Covered Mechanical Components: Our electric karts feature covered mechanical components, offering protection to drivers and preventing burns and injuries. In contrast, touching certain areas of a gas kart can lead to painful burns.
  6. Increased Torque: Electric karts exhibit superior torque, enabling them to reach top speed rapidly compared to gas karts. Instant power is at your disposal as soon as you press the pedal, a crucial advantage when navigating tracks with multiple turns since swift acceleration is vital when exiting a turn.

While gas karts have the advantage of longer range and runtime due to their refueling capabilities, this is a challenge we’ve successfully tackled at Accelerate by providing an abundant fleet of karts to support your racing experience. We prioritize delivering a faster, more enjoyable racing experience, so you won’t be affected by the charging time of electric karts.
