Why the Go-Kart Alley Off-Road Kit?
There are other kits out there, but a go-kart should be more than just a frame with wheels and a motor that moves it. It should have style and curves that captivate your imagination. It should move YOU! The Go-Kart Alley kits will definitely move you!
Vintage go-karts have a fond place in the hearts of many. Fans of Go-Kart Alley frequently remark that the go-karts are just like the ones they used to have. But acquiring an original vintage kart is getting harder and harder. They are either too hard to find, too expensive or too far gone to restore without a great deal of time, tooling and effort.
We restored a number of classic vintage go-karts for our web series. Once we began to think about producing our own kits, we took a look at our fleet of over 18 go-karts to get inspired! We went with a design that is the perfect blend between race kart and yard kart. Something that will give you superior handling on the track yet rugged enough to take the abuse you might give it off road.

The not-so-small print:
Remember, Go-Kart Alley is fiction. Go-karts are real, both real fun and real dangerous. Our stunts are carried out by trained drivers on closed courses under the supervision of professional stunt coordinators. It is vitally important that anyone riding a go-kart wear the proper protective gear. The rider should wear, at a minimum, a full-face DOT-rated motorcycle helmet, gloves and a helmet supporting neck brace. These items and other safety equipment are not supplied with the kits but can be found through many online or retail sellers.

This frame is solid! Such a fun build and not complicating. Waiting for the engine to arrive so I can give this baby a go! Definitely recommend!
My grandson and I wanted to build an electric go-kart together…sort of fun learning experience. We started with the Vintage Go-Kart kit from gopowersports because it seemed like it had everything we needed to get started, and gave us good flexibility to add what we needed to adapt to electric power. We were not disappointed.
The kit is very good quality. Since it ships unpainted, you can see that the materials and the welds are very good quality. The rear axle, brakes, wheels are all superb. Our kit accidentally came with two gas pedals and no brake pedal, but we sent a note to gopowersports and they sent us a brake pedal within a few days. No harm, no foul.
Our project is powered by three 1800W 48V electric motors, and high-density lithium-ion batteries. Batteries are each about the physical size of a car battery, and we have three of them, so we welded up two mounting trays that sit outside of the kit frame about even with the driver. The third battery is mounted under the steering column. We had to enclose & pad them because lithium-ion batteries are susceptible to combustion on impact, but it was easy enough to weld up a little cage and line it with pool noodle foam.
We made an electrical box & control panel for each of the motor controllers & throttle and mounted them behind the seat. The existing kit motor mount plate worked perfectly for mounting three electric motors.
We’ll put a video of the completed project on YouTube shortly, but none of it could have been possible without using this go-kart frame as the solid foundation. We definitely recommend!
Bought two of the off road kart kits for my pre-teen boys. We built them over the course of two days and went with a basic rattle-can paint job. Needed to extend the engine mounting slots on one frame - and bolt on some wood 4x4 blocks to the pedals ;^) setting the alignment is easy to do, but requires some trial and error to get dialed in.
I set the governor to about one third the throttle range and they are still screaming fast! Love em!
These have so much more power than the 5 hp / centrifugal clutch go kart I had as a kid.
These are just flat out fun!
These guys are great. Good solid product and good customer service.
Disculpe , precio o que cuesta todo el kit todo terreno de kart vigge , es en $MX o en usd?
Frame is strong with excellent welds. It comes with enough stuff to get you started. I ended up moving the pedals on top of the frame and forward so they would be far enough out for me to reach them comfortably. I also had to cut off and relocate the brackets for both the throttle and brake lines in order to get the supplied lines to work. So far I am very happy with it, but it's a work in progress.
2 driveshaft bearing flanges missing. So far have everything else.
Still in the build process after having frames powder coated. Frames and parts seem HD, but sure wish the kits came with a parts breakdown sheet showing part locations are would be very helpful.
Love this thing. Easy to assemble and the frame is well constructed via solid robust design. Bare bones frame allows for customization in many areas. Thanks so much to the team at GoPowersports.com. You have great stuff for the recreational vehicle enthusiast!
