K1 Speed- Indoor Go Karts Boise
K1 is a go karting powerhouse. Featuring some of the best indoor electric go karts in the country. Across the United States you can find K1 in most major cities. The product is very consistent city to city.
The go karts at K1 speed are as close as you can get to a real racing go kart. The speed, handling, and feel are amazing. The power of the 20 HP electric motors will suck you back into your seat and have you wanting more!
K1 uses all electric go karts.
Electric go karts are fast, quiet and just plain fun. One of the benefits when compared to gas engines is the torque. An electric motor is able to achieve maximum torque instantly while a gas engine has a powerband. Meaning a certain rpm range will produce maximum torque.

Dirt Kart – Indoor Dirt Go Kart Racing
DirtKart is probably the coolest go kart venue I have seen. Dirt racing is super fun. Sliding sideways drifting through the corners, beating, banging, door to door racing!
I think it is really awesome someone is capturing the beauty of dirt racing in an indoor rental go kart form.
Dirt racing may seem like an outdated, dirty, and rough form of racing. Well, some aspects of dirt racing are but there is a lot more to it.
DirtKart Go Karts
The go karts used are Sodi RT8 European built racing go karts. They have 13 HP engines and as DirtKart says “They are Fast”
If you get hungry at DirtKart there is pizza and other hot foods, you can choose from. Oh, and there is Beer!
Winning your Race at DirtKart
You need to be able to pitch the car into the corner and keep up as much of your momentum as possible. When you are sliding sideways you scrub a lot of speed, and you slow down. On the other hand, if you just try and turn the wheel you will not make the corner.
Finding the balance between sideways and too sideways is the key. Practicing on when to turn into the corner and when to get back into the throttle are techniques you will only learn by actually racing these go karts.
