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.
