I agree it’s expensive currently. Prices will come down – that’s why many high-end performance kart rental/arrive-and-drive places have gone for electric.
But, a top-of-the-line KZ2 setup will run the same price and cost way more over the life of it.
Consider the life-cycle costs – electricity at $0.15 /kWhr (when energy is expensive) vs. the cost of race fuel and rebuilds.
I still love the noise my TM makes, but the prospect of electric-drive karts is thrilling.
