3 things you didn't know you could do in a go-kart

If you're big on the environment and an adrenaline rush, Lindsey Granger and the crew at Octane Raceway have a new, heart-pumping pastime for you. You might think you know go-karting, but you've never seen it like this. Get ready to hit the track this weekend once you see our top 3 reasons to hop in a supercharged go-kart going electric.

1. Zoom By the Competition

Don't confuse these go-karts for golf carts - they go fast. They accelerate faster than gas-powered rides and have an incredible amount of torque, with a good-sized body for handling.

2. Be Good for the Environment

Since these wheels are electric, they don't emit fumes or fules and don't drip grease on the tracks. You won't leave smelling like a member of a racecar pit crew; and you can have fun knowing you're doing the environment a favor.

3. All The Thrills, None of the Spills

Think all this high-speed fun seems dangerous? Don't worry - since electric karts are heavier than gas ones, the battery pods keep you better balanced on the track, keeping you from going so fast, your kart flips over. Plus, you get to see what it's like to be a racecar driver with harnesses, helmets, and pedals that are used in real racecars!
