Drifting Go Karts: The Ultimate Outdoor Fun for Springtime


Let the kids have their Mario Kart and leave the drifting go karts to the adults. That's right, you can finally have the go kart you've been dreaming of. Hammacher Schlemmer is selling an electric go kart made by Razor for adults. This go kart is under $700 and is going to be the quarantine gadget that will make staying at home fun.

The drifting go kart has a steering wheel that will enable riders to make 360-degree spins and drifting slides. The Big Wheel tricycle prepared you for this moment!

Go-karting is a fun activity for all ages. However, I wouldn't recommend letting little ones play with this battery-powered go kart. This is not a Huffy! This drifting go kart is designed for adults who need a little adrenaline rush. Forget electric scooters, I want to cruise through the city on this drifting go kart and pretend I'm Speed Racer.
