Go Carts - A Thrilling Experience For All Ages
By:Dr. Larry A. Johnson, D.C.
The thrill of sharply skidding around a blind corner in your go cart is an experience that is hard to surpass. Racing down the track in one of your speedy go carts, maneuvering around curves and slower gocart drivers, is fun at its best. Pressing down hard on the accelerator as you pass by slower drivers is about as thrilling as it gets. Now that's recreation! Itís just too bad not everyone can experience the fun and excitement of go carting.
The smell of the dirt track and the distinct aroma of the gas and oil burning in the gocart engine is enough to excite any enthusiast, even when watching from the stands. If youíve ever watched an Indy Car or Formula One race in person or on TV you know how exciting it can be. But imagine climbing into one of those off road or racing gocarts yourself. Starting out slow, taking out to the track, the anticipation is almost unbearable. But then, once on the track, you press the accelerator on your gocart to the floor, feeling an immediate thrust forward, and your adrenaline pumping just as fast. What a thrill. Go carts canít be beat.
Go carts are how you can experience the thrill of Formula One racing without the danger. At least with the beginner go carts. And if youíre really serious, itís a good way to get started toward a career in professional racing. Once you master driving go carts itís time to take the next step into the arena of professional racing. But if youíre not quite so brave remaining in a go cart can still be exciting.
Go carts are geared toward beginners in either off road or paved track racing. Beginner go carts are easy to drive and control. And if you do lose control there are usually not serious consequences to deal with afterward. No, itís just plain fun racing go carts. Go carting is a simplified version of Indy Car or Formula One racing. But like anything else there are different levels that you can become involved in.
From total beginners at amusement parks and fun centers to professional go cart racing. From the least experienced drivers to ones that are training to become professional drivers. You can choose your own competition. No need to get involved over your head. The main objective is to have fun. And once you get into your own go cart, no matter what level you are competing in, the fun just never ends.
Once you get addicted to go carting there is no limit as to what you can do. You can purchase a brand new gocart ready for racing, or you can buy inexpensive kits and build your own gocarts. Installing rack and pinion steering to changing tires will become easy over time. Or how about the installation of a brand new engine designed for improving the speed of go carts? Maybe youíll be after a brand new frame that will be the envy of all around. Perhaps youíll want to get into electric go carts instead of gas powered go carts. The way gas prices are climbing these days that might be a good idea.
But the bottom line is this: speed is where the excitement comes in. And these go carts can reach speeds up to 90 MPH or more. Thatís fast. But once again, there is no need to start getting nervous just yet. There are opportunities for thrills at every level. You donít need to go 80 MPH to experience a thrilling ride. So if youíve ever thought about getting involved with go carts itís never too late and youíre never too old. Go out and experience the thrill of go carting now.
