Karts need to maintained better, charged properly as well as loose body work. Warning do not piss off some of the workers on the track or you will find your kart not working properly.

Thrill, Thrill Thrill. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Thrill to ride go-cart and competing. Highly recommend if you have not been to go-carting place.
