The Kart is a small low-profile go-kart with one seat. The vehicle is usually depicted with bare frame and a frontal bumper, but may also be available with additional matching side skirts. Other features include its rear engine and small racing slicks.
The Kart has average speed, good acceleration and good off-roading. It is compact and capable of making sharp turns. although it can oversteer. Its low profile and light weight makes ordinarily small obstacles more dangerous.
The Kart is classed as a car, like the Mower, so CJ does not fall out of his seat when the vehicle flips over.
