To enhance performance, suppliers are employing carbon fiber frames and engines with up to 1,100cc displacement.
- Lightweight designs: China makers of go karts are adopting new materials such as aluminum alloy and carbon fiber. Employing the second type reduces the overall weight by 50 percent while increasing load capacity.
- Upgraded efficiency: Recent models integrate liquid locally made or imported liquid cooled engines. Displacement can reach 1,100 cc and speed is at least 100kph. Some high-end units incorporate Nissan or Cummins units.
- Improved visual appeal: Under this measure, bright colors are painted on the go kart’s frame and body. Some integrate reinforced plastic or metal panels in the frame, which also serves as protection from dust, sand and water.
