Take your Go Carting Off the StreetWritten by Mitch Johnson
There are those that understand and have passion and those that do not, but for either type of person is it obvious that off-road go carting attracts an audience of loyal and up-beat drivers. Both young and young at heart ride go carts off-road purely for thrill of it. Advocates of off-road go carting get a satisfaction from tumbling over rough terrain in their carts designed specifically for that purpose. For many, thrill is only purpose behind their hobby of off-road go carting, but other still thrive on competitive aspect of it.
Off-road go carts is a broad category in many aspects, from designs of carts to type of people interested in sport. Because of this off road category of go carting is split into even more precise classifications, depending on type of off roading a person participates in. The most noticeable separation of off-road go carting are cart designs. For drivers who enjoy a recreational cruise through mud or just like carting up and down beach, off-road go cart designs are not as high profile as those used for hard core off roading or go cart racing. The off-road race drivers place much more attention on mechanics of go carts. Go carts with best suspension system, highest torque and largest horsepower will be carts that offer best ride through rough.
Unlike most street racing go carts, off-road carts have brush bars and a tall safety flag, which are just of few of extra safety features included on most all off roading go carts. For street racers, brush bars and other features added on body of a go cart are unreasonable when trying to achieve greater arrow dynamics. However, off-road carting requires a few more safety precautions to be taken because of rough and bumpy ride drivers endure.
