Kart Brands

There are many many types of karts. Like cars, there is an extensive list of brands. Here are a few: Comp-Kart, MGM, Iconic Edge, Birel, Emmick, Praga, Expirit, Kosmic, CRG, VLR, Intrepid, Tony Kart, Ital-Kart, Margay, Comp-kart, Invader, etc. The Bold brands are American-made.

There are specific chassis for different motor packages! Shifter karts require some extra hardware and features on the chassis. 2 cycle karts are usually a stiffer chassis, and 4 cycle chassis can be specific for a brand.

Kid karts are tiny karts! Jr-1 are cadet karts, and Jr-2 and older are full size karts.

Most vendors carry the consumable stuff, tires, spare parts etc.
