Kids, don't try this at home. Stick to Mario Kart, or at least, stay on the ground and keep your speeds below 20 MPH. I know this looks exciting, but you are not Travis Pastrana. However, you can always stick to some good ol' regular go karting. Amazon has a wide variety of electric go karts for all budgets, including some for adults.
We rounded up five of the best electric go karts on Amazon for the entire family. Grab some helmets because it's time for go kart racing. Summer will be here before you know it, and we could all use some go karts for another summer probably spent in quarantine.
Best Electric Go Karts
Best for: Budget
You can trust Razor for all things dirt bikes, scooters, and go karts. This 24V go kart is available on Amazon for $329.
You'll have 40 minutes of non-stop go karting on a full battery charge. Its top speed is 12 MPH, making it perfect for kids. (Plus there's a seat belt.) Kids will be able to use the hand brake to stop the electric vehicle.
It is recommended for kids 8 and up, but there is a weight limit of 140 pounds. I don't know about you, but I (a grown adult) is definitely thinking about ordering this for myself.
Joe gave it five stars and said, "My son LOVES his Go Kart. It's pretty fast!! Came 95% assembled and charging the battery is easy."

The go kart is equipped with pneumatic tires and a disc brake. It's going to make a fantastic starter go kart. A customer gave it five-stars and said, "6 year olds daughter loves it; she especially loves the simple reverse feature. She asked to go faster as as quick as she got used to "low" speed - same day! This mommy was able to put on the roll bar n a few minutes without a hitch. 8 year old son finally tried it today! Easy ride and great for first timers. Grew up with older brothers and two wheelers, quads, and dirt roads! No complaints so far!"
